New Look At Shredded Jared Leto As Morbius Revealed

  • Published: 11 April 2019
  • Apparently, Sony's Morbius will be a very specific kind of vampire — the sexy kind.

    Actor Jared Leto shared what appears to be a set photo from the forthcoming flick to his Instagram recently, and if you can look past the rippling torso and tight abs, you may find there's more going on than meets the eye.

    The actor has been all about teasing Morbius via social media: On April 4th, 2019, he even posted a short video of himself in character, standing on a busy city street while throngs of passersby rush around him in a blur. Leto claimed to have posted the set photo in honor of the anniversary of This is War, the third album by his rock band 30 Seconds to Mars. But it's obviously meant to be a bit of a Morbius tease as well… See that dark smear of blood at the corner of Leto's mouth?

    So, to state the obvious: Jared Leto is a good-looking man, and he's obviously following in the time-honored tradition of superhero movie stars like Thor's Chris Hemsworth by getting into incredible shape for his role as Dr. Michael Morbius, the biochemist who has traditionally been the staunch opponent of your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. But there are a couple of possible clues in the photo that warrant a closer look.

    First, Leto is sporting a distinctive Casio digital wristwatch... the kind that was popular in the eighties and nineties. This could be a clue about the time period Morbius will be set in. So far, director Daniel Espinosa hasn't revealed any real plot details or the film's period setting, but the watch's placement here certainly invites speculation. Of course, it could just be indicative of Leto's taste in timepieces. Difficult to say.

    More importantly: Either Leto has suddenly sprouted a whole bunch of moles on his face, or he's covered in those tracking dots used in motion-capture performances. Note that in his vampire form, Morbius is, well… frankly, he's hideous in the comics. Rather than practical makeup, it appears that special effects house Nvizage will be using CGI to create the Living Vampire's ghastly look. And yes, that's the same house that provided the effects for Sony's Venom.

    This could be viewed as a positive or a negative, depending on how you feel about Venom's special effects. While plenty of fans were perfectly satisfied with the title character's appearance, others felt that the CGI left a lot to be desired. Some moviegoers even thought the effects looked dated. Of course, Venom and Morbius are two characters with completely different looks, and even if Nvizage fell short in rendering the former, they could still totally crush it when it comes to Morbius. After all, the special effects house did awesome work for Espinosa on his film Life and on last year's underrated Nazi zombie thriller Overlord. Plus, it's worth noting that Venom made 855 million dollars worldwide, which may encourage Sony to pony up a bit more cash for Morbius' special effects budget. Keep watching to see more of the New look at shredded Jared as Morbius... revealed finally!

      He is to soft which is why he couldn’t pull off the joker hopefully he gets a little darker or looks into vampires a lot more he reminds me of a 16 year old girl he would be a great nice guy character but these darker characters are hard for leto

                  Morbius did start out as a handsome vampire kind of I just learned he wasn't that great looking as he was growing up but they changed his look to make him look more grotesque more like a Nosferatu. at least IMO.

                    Let’s hope unlike Venom, this will be rated R 😂

                    • Luke The Ghost Killer 2515

                      I LOVED Leto as Joker. It’s not his fault the writers screwed him. I look forward to him as Mobius. Let’s hope he gets back the respect he deserves.

                        I wouldn’t say the best portrayal, but I still liked it. In my opinion it was a good version of Joker in its own thug like way. And I liked how he interacted with Harley Quinn and Batman.

                        @Luke The Ghost Killer 2515 writers wrote the story like shit i agree, but if it was another method actor, it wouldve been much better, i blame Leto for taking character down the bad path just because he thought it's the best portrayal of him.

                        Nah I still blame the writers lol
                        But honestly I thought he did Joker decently and hope they plan on bringing him back.

                        He's a method actor. He chose his own way to play the character and did it terribly, stop blaming writers

                          Imagine, one of Morbius' post-credit scenes:

                          (Dr. Morbius, after walking for awhile through the streets, goes through a dark alley trying to hide from a patrol, with it's red and blue siren echoing in the distance. As he goes deeper into the darkness, you stop when you hear the following:

                          EDDIE: Hey Cullen!

                          (He is surprised, pop references aside, it's kinda obvious that the stranger is adreessing him considering the alley it's a one way path. He slowly turns around to distinguish, in the dark of the night, nothing more, AND ONLY NOTHING MORE than, for now, 2 WHITE EYES And finally A SPIDER SYMBOL !!)

                          VENOM: (he stays like that for a few seconds, Then he shows his teeth) Care for a Bite...?

                          (Fast Zoom to the Symbol, similar movement to the end of the Spider-man 3 Venom transformation) (Cut to Black)(no pun intended)

                          (Tribute to his first appearance in the comics when he traumatizes Mary Jane, a teaser for THE black suit and, in my humble opinion, a good way to introduce the spider symbol <--- Yeah, About that --->, my theory is that, eventually, all pseudo-villains of the Sony Cinematic Universe Co-adhered to the MCU Spider-Man Trilogy are gonna meet after each of their individual films, BUT, In the case of Eddie and Venom, between (after) Venom 2 and this meeting, neccesarily and officially, Venom has to meet MCU Peter Parker to placate the fans. And it's only after that, that the pseudo-villains, at first will fight for a while, like the MCU main trio in Avengers 2012 (HENCE this encounter) just to join forces in a super crosover against a major threat.
                          Yes, yes, call me crazy, deranged, lunatic and idiotic, but at least while you do that, please, give me your opinion of this little post-credit scene concept of my creation. You guys thinks that it's at least plausible?)

                                  THIS is the ROLE made for him.Not JOKER> Morbius is great. And I hope thet get Spidey in there eventually since that's where he first appeared.... The Amazing Spider-Man #101 (Oct. 1971)

                                        I hope Sony actually shows how talented Jared Leto is. Rather than what DC did which they screwed him over and that was not cool cutting a lot of parts out on suicide squad.

                                          I still haven't forgiven him for suicide squad.
                                          I have low expectations, but we'll have to see what the director does with it since when given too much free space jared shaves off his eyebrows for no reason and puts on lipstick and a crack baby grill.
                                          YOU LOOKED LIKE A TRANSGENDER STREET HOOKER!!!

I did not like it and was done with it 5 minutes after the movie and here we are years later and people still have no life beyond pissing on that joker....embarrassing.
