Sony Pictures has released a new teaser for Morbius, the upcoming villain-centric film starring Jared Leto as the Living Vampire.
The new teaser focuses on Dr. Michael Morbius’ (Leto) journey from a child with a deadly degenerative disease to a renowned scientist willing to do anything to find a cure.
Unfortunately, that means exposing himself to a curse that turns him into a blood-thirsty vampire.
The new teaser also focuses on Morbius‘ long-time friend Milo (Matt Smith), another man who suffers from the same degenerative disease.
The teaser gives us a glimpse at how both men built their friendship through the pain they had to endure as children.
That’s why Milo doesn’t seem very happy when Morbius refuses to share his cure, a decision that might lead the two men to fight for the power of the Living Vampire.
Here it is:

Daniel Espinosa directs Morbius from a script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, while Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster produce the film.
Earlier this year, Espinosa let go of a possible cameo by Venom (Tom Hardy) in the film, though it remains to be seen whether that was an actual spoiler or just a coincidence.
Discussing the Morbius production, Espinosa said that:
“It usually feels strange before the day begins, when you look at the schedule and stand on the set yourself. When you walk around there, the recording looks just like a Swedish production.”
“The difference comes from the casting, since when you look at the schedule and read names like Michael Keaton, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy, then it feels cool and very exciting.”
Morbius will hit theaters on April 1st.
