First, there was news that Christian Bale is possibly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and now, even Jared Leto is playing a Marvel character. What is happening? Why is everyone switching from DC to Marvel?
Well, whatever the reason may be, fans will always stay winning and looks like everyone is very excited for Jared Leto finally getting the love and recognition he deserves after seeing him in the first trailer of Morbius.
After playing Batman's ultimate nemesis Joker, he's now a pseudo-vampire. Now that's a Christian Bale-level transformation, we must say.
Honestly, Jared Leto, as a person, seems like the perfect choice for the role of a vampire, for some reason, and maybe that's why Morbius already looks so much better than his Joker character from Suicide Squad.
Basically, the anti-hero Morbius is the Living Vampire, who appeared as a Spider-Man villain in the comics. Dr Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning doctor, has a rare blood condition that he needs to cure in order to live, but of course, he accidentally turns himself into a 'pseudo-vampire', after gaining vampire bat-like qualities, including echolocation and a thirst for blood. Pretty normal stuff.
Here's the trailer:
Even though the movie is not a part of MCU, and it's basically a Sony movie, much like Venom, it does tie in with MCI in a confusing way. The trailer also features Michael Keaton, but we still don't know if he's actually reprising the character of Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Guess we'll find out soon what's actually happening.
So, Michael Keaton is in morbius, is he playing the vulture? Maybe he's recruiting him to be a member of the Sinister Six? That's just a theory, that'll be nice connection. pic.twitter.com/QOHbhwPqdx
In the meantime, people are just excited because Jared Leto is playing a great character that fits him perfectly after hating him as Joker.

Looks like it'll tie into MCU.
The first trailer for #Morbius is out and it looks like it's way more connected to the #SpiderMan movies than #Venom was. Looks to take place after the events of FAR FROM HOME (?)... and, whoa, Michael Keaton! pic.twitter.com/CixU8lJ2zL— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) January 13, 2020
Is there going to be another fight?
Sony: #Morbius is not part of the MCU.
Also Sony: Here's Michael Keaton as Vulture in our trailer, remember him? He was Vulture, you know from Spiderman Homecoming.
