Anticipation among fans is rising about Morbius, Sony’s Marvel character ever since the trailer dropped. Jared Leto looks convincing in the trailer. We saw the Vulture already in the trailer and it all ties back to Spiderman proving it’s all happening in the MCU.
And We. Just. Can’t… Contain the excitement.
But before we delve into more marvellous mysteries let’s get to know Dr Michael Morbius a little more.
Dr Michael Morbius’ childhood was as rough as it can be. Raised as a single child by his mother, he was bullied in the school. Much to his dismay, he was diagnosed with a rare blood disease that made him weak, ugly and extremely lonely.
An experiment went wrong while finding a cure to his disease and turned him into a vampire. Marvel comics have a ‘Living Vampire’ as Morbius’. This attribute makes him stronger as opposed to traditional vampires. Be it the silver bullet, wooden cross or any other religious artefact. Nothing affects him.
Will Jared Leto do justice to the character?
Actor Jared Leto is known for his hardcore dedication towards bringing out the best in any character. A method actor, Leto brings method to the madness of each character be it the Joker in Suicide Squad to Nemo in Mr Nobody. He knows how to get into the skin of each character—assuring there can’t be any other actor more fit for the role.
So, we all can have high expectations from Leto to play the Living Vampire.
- Superhuman Stamina
- Superhuman Strength
- Heightened Senses
- Vampire Creation
- Immune to almost every Vampire vulnerability
- He needs to feed on blood several times in order to maintain his mental soundness and physical strength. Otherwise, he loses control and becomes weak.
- He is a little sensitive to sunlight. That doesn’t kill him but does make him a little uneasy. That’s pretty much it. Scary, right!!
