The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Leto has signed up for Morbius, The Living Vampire, to be directed by Daniel Espinosa, director of last year’s horror flick Life. In the comics, Michael Morbius is a biochemist with a rare blood disorder who decides to experiment on himself, and becomes a “living vampire,” essentially a vampire with all the superpowers and none of the garlic or silver allergies. He is still bothered by that whole “must consume blood to survive” thing, though, which is where most of the dramatic tension comes from, although it turns out a serum derived from Spider-Man’s blood drives his vampirism into remission.
After being the worst Joker ever and ruining Blade Runner 2049, Jared Leto is taking his annoying over-acting to Marvel so he can now ruin a Spider-Man property. Not only is he joining Marvel but he’s playing a vampire because OF COURSE he’s playing a vampire.
Jared Leto wasn’t signing up to be Green Goblin. He wants to wear silly contacts, fake fangs and he wants to stay in character on set and terrorize his co-stars by sucking on necks and shit. Leto only has one speed: garbage.
Morbius, The Living Vampire is already a very skippable movie and one of the least interesting Spider-Man villains so combining him with the blind guy from Blade Runner 2049 that only appeared in two scenes but they were the least watchable two scenes of the movie, makes Morbius the worst comic book movie all of time before a single word of the script is even written.
Leto’s best role was in American Psycho because we got to see Christian Bale cut him into pieces, which is his best state of being. Turning The Joker into some weird gangbanger from el barrio driving low riders, wearing grills and tattooing laughs onto his body is the reimagining of a classic character that literally zero people asked for.
Have I made it clear how I feel about this man?
Get Jared Leto ooooouuuut of here.
