Morbius Art Reveals a New Look at the Comic Book Movie

-

A new piece of Morbius art has surfaced and looks to have come from Comic-Con magazine (via ComicBookMovie). You can check out Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) as Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist suffering from a rare blood disease, in the new Morbius art below.

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius.

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Directed by Daniel Espinosa (LifeSafe House), the film also stars Adria Arjona as the fiancée of the Nobel Prize-winning scientist. Jared Harris plays Morbius’s mentor.

Tyrese Gibson is Simon Stroud, an FBI agent hunting Morbius with partner Alberto Rodriguez (Al Madrigal). And Matt Smith plays the villain Loxias Crown, Morbius’s best friend who also suffers from the blood disease.

Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless and Art Marcum & Matt Holloway wrote the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach produce with Lucas Foster. The music is by Jon Ekstrand, who has worked with Espinosa on such films as Easy Money, Child 44, and Life.

Created by writer Roy Thomas and originally designed by penciler Gil Kane, Morbius the Living Vampire first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 in October 1971.
