Morbius: Jared Leto introduces the legendary Marvel vampire character in a new trailer, who will be brought to life on the big screen on January 28, 2022. The coronavirus plunged Morbius’s film into an endless succession of delays, but now that Marvel and Sony Pictures have managed to accommodate it in its calendar (it will be released on January 28, 2022), Jared Leto wanted to refresh our memories and remind us who It is this iconic Spiderman villain that he will play on the big screen.

We will see what approach its director, Daniel Espinosa, gives in the film, because in the comics he has come to have a fascinating redemption arc with series in which he even managed to heal and began to do good, in contrast to others in which he lost sanity and became a terrifying creature.
