Jared Leto In Morbius Trailer (Photo Credit: YouTube)
After the not-so-impressive DC Joker, Jared Leto is back to undo the damage in Sony’s second movie in MCU as a pale, undead creature. The trailer opens with a young Leto in an orphanage home who is being told by Jared Harris that is he gifted despite his rare condition. "You have a gift, you always have," he tells Morbius. Jared Leto's Morbius rare blood condition makes him turn into a scientist who accidentally turns himself into a vampire-like creature, with bat-like qualities, including echolocation and a thirst for blood.
