Quick Trailer Thoughts – ‘Morbius’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Sadly, the upcoming film ‘Morbius’ has been delayed from a January release to an April release this year. Hopefully by the time the film comes out in April, there’ll be less Covid cases going about – please keep safe. In the meantime, let me share some thoughts on the movie based on the trailer. 🙂

Morbius is a character from the ‘Spider-Man’ world that I know very little about. I’m not sure many people know about him to be honest. I’ve not read many of his appearances in the ‘Spider-Man’ comics, but I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen of his episodes in the ‘Spider-Man’ 1990s animated series. 🙂

From watching the trailer for the upcoming film, it does look promising. I’m not sure if this will be a faithful film adaptation of ‘the living vampire’ character, but it’s got to be better than what I’ve seen already in the ‘Venom’ films with Tom Hardy. I also hope Jared Leto will deliver a good performance.

It seems to be a good performance judging from the trailer compared to how he played the Joker in 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’. I’m looking forward to seeing Matt Smith in the film after seeing him play the Eleventh Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’. I hope he’ll have more to do in the film compared to the trailer. 😀

The film will also feature Adria Arjona as Martine, Morbius’ fiancée; Jared Harris (who was in ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’) as a professor and Morbius’ mentor; Al Madrigal as Alberto Rodrigeuz and Tyrese Gibson as Simon Stroud, who are two FBI agent that are hunting Morbius here.

Michael Keaton is also going to be in the film and apparently he’s playing Adrian Toomes/the Vulture from ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’. Not sure if this connects to the multiverse featured in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. I’m pretty sure I saw a picture of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man in the trailer. 😀

Hopefully, I’ll get to see ‘Morbius’ this year to satisfy my curiosity. I’m not one for vampire films, but since this does have a superhero element to it, it should be entertaining enough. I’m not expecting this film to be a winner for me, but I’m sure I’ll have a fun time watching it, whatever manner I choose.

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂
