FandomWire’s sources have revealed that Morbius’ first trailer will be dropping on January 13, 2020, at 6 am PST.
Sony’s upcoming film is about Morbius who is a character that debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #101, and Jared Leto will be bringing the Living Vampire to life on the big screen.
The movie itself is releasing July 31, 2020, and little is currently known about the plot beyond that it will follow Michael Morbius trying to cure himself of a rare blood disease before succumbing to vampirism.
This is pretty much the gist of the character’s arc in the comics as he is a Greek scientist who, like many of Spider-Man’s villains, tried to cure himself only for it to go horribly wrong.
However, unlike most of the wallcrawler’s Rogues gallery, he’s far more of an anti-hero and a force of good than an agent of evil.
Who else is in Morbius?
J. K. Simmons is rumored to be making an appearance as J. Jonah Jameson and Matt Smith, known for his time as the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who, has been cast as Loxias Crown.
With Tom Holland reportedly having a cameo in Venom 2 and J. K. Simmons rumored to be appearing in Morbius, it is possible that Sony’s Universe and the MCU will finally connect.
As for Smith’s character, you may know Crown by his supervillain alter-ego, Hunger. He is a vampiric mutant so powerful that it took Spider-Man, Morbius, and Blade to take him down.
Perhaps the trailer will reveal the first glimpse at Matt Smith in this villainous role, along with DC’s ex-Joker Jared Leto as the Living Vampire.
