The character’s origin story is similar to the tale of Jekyll and Hyde with slightly different results. Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist searching for a cure to his rare blood disease, and in the search for a cure, Morbius accidentally turns himself into a superhuman vampire.
The film features Jared Leto as the eponymous character, plus Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Adria Arjona and is directed by Daniel Espinosa. The trailer has a surprising cameo near its end.
