Everything You Need to Know About Morbius, and What Happened the Last Time Someone Tried to Adapt Him

Everything You Need to Know About Morbius, and What Happened the Last Time Someone Tried to Adapt Him

Morbius the Living Vampire has had a long and peculiar history in Marvel’s comics. Initially a product of lifted censorship rules in comics, Morbius has now become not just one of Spider-Man’s most infamous foes-turned-uneasy allies, but also, thanks to Sony wanting to franchise every angle of the Spider-Verse it can, the star of his own major motion picture . However, the tale of his other...

I Cannot Believe There's Really Going to Be a Morbius Movie

I Cannot Believe There's Really Going to Be a Morbius Movie

If you told me 20 years ago that third-tier

Spider-Man character Morbius the Living Vampire would not just appear in a comic book movie but star in one , I’d have laughed in your face. If you told me 10, or even five years ago, I would have called you a liar. Now, the movie is coming out in a mere six months, and the recent trailer is incontrovertible proof that it actually exists—and I...

The Spider-Verse Connections in Morbius Are Confusing as Hell

The Spider-Verse Connections in Morbius Are Confusing as Hell

Morbius’ first trailer has arrived, and while it mostly focuses on laying out the origin story of its titular vampire , it also suggests that the movie’s going to have some rather direct and significant ties to Spider-Man, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and...perhaps Sony’s excellent Spider-Man game . It’s all a little confusing, but really, when haven’t comic book movies been kinda messy?

Jared Leto intentó evitar que Warner hiciera la película del Joker, según filtraciones

Jared Leto intentó evitar que Warner hiciera la película del Joker, según filtraciones

Joker, la película protagonizada por Joaquin Phoenix, va camino de convertirse en la película con clasificación “R” (para adultos) más taquillera en la historia, superando a Deadpool. Pero este éxito pudo no haber ocurrido, y la culpa iba a ser de otro Joker: Jared Leto.

Quizás no lo recuerdes (o probablemente has intentado olvidarlo), pero Leto interpretó al

Joker en Suicide Squad , la...

Maybe he should

send fewer condoms to people? Yeah, fewer condoms, Jared, let’s go with that.

Ever since Leto

donned the #damaged tattoo and became Suicide Squad’s clown prince of crime, there have been as many rumors that he would get his own series of spinoff movies—whether it was solo projects or tag-teams with Margot Robbie’s far-better-received Harley Quinn—as there were allegations...

This Short Documentary Unravels the Weird, Messy History of the Joker

This Short Documentary Unravels the Weird, Messy History of the Joker

The Joker is having a strange moment right now. A DC icon, one of the most charismatic villains to ever to grace comics and screen,

potential incel idol and an incitement to violence? In 2019, he occupies all of these cultural positions, which can make parsing the character himself somewhat hard to parse. This documentary, running down the history of the villain, is a solid start.

Matt Smith Is Likely Joining Jared Leto's Morbius Movie

Remember when we all scoffed at the idea of a movie about a Spider-Man villain without Spider-Man, then

Venom happened—and suddenly Sony’s Spider-Man-adjacent film universe didn’t seem so foolish? Another movie in that realm, the Jared Leto-starring Morbius , has inched closer to the screen with the announcement that Matt Smith is joining the cast.

Variety broke the news that Smith—of Doctor...

Jared Leto Is Likely to Star in Morbius, the Living Vampire 

Jared Leto Is Likely to Star in <i>Morbius, the Living Vampire </i>

If you thought Jared Leto was creepy as the Joker, wait until he starts sucking blood as one of Spider-Man’s most complex villains.

Yes, it’s true. Deadline reports that the Oscar-winning actor is likely to play Morbius, the Living Vampire in a standalone Sony movie, much like the upcoming Venom. Daniel Espinosa (Life) will direct.

A Handy Guide to the Statuses of the Too Many Joker Movies in the Works

On Tuesday night , news broke that Warner Bros. was giving Jared Leto’s damaged incarnation of the Joker his own spinoff. Which would be all well and good—some fans, and even Leto himself, were disgruntled at how little he appeared in Suicide Squad—if... well, there weren’t already a smörgåsbord of other movies starring multiple Jokers in the works at the studio.

Over the last year or so,...

Finally a Look at Jared Leto's Suicide Squad Joker Hair

Finally a Look at Jared Leto's <i>Suicide Squad</i> Joker Hair

It looks like keeping Jared Leto out of yesterday's image was a purposeful omission on the part of David Ayer, because he's tweeted a solo shot of Leto. He's got the full-on green hair and the photo is very much a recreation of this Killing Joke cover.

Note the artful blurring:

Joker Was Originally Going to Team Up With Enchantress in <i>Suicide Squad</i>

A lot of bad edits,

behind-the-scenes antics , and other questionable decisions turned DC’s Suicide Squad from a cool antihero saga into a weird, confusing mess. Jared Leto’s Joker took the biggest hit—making the much-hyped “method ” character a glorified cameo. Now, director David Ayer is shining another light on the villain-that-could-have-been, revealing how the Joker’s schemes originally...

La verdadera razón por la que el nuevo Joker tiene esos dientes y un tatuaje en la frente

La verdadera razón por la que el nuevo Joker tiene esos dientes y un tatuaje en la frente

Cuando vimos aquel primer tráiler de

Suicide Squad más de un año antes del estreno, lo primero que llamó nuestra atención era el aspecto del nuevo Joker , interpretado por Jared Leto. Sus dientes metálicos estilo gangster rapero, sus muchos tatuajes, etcétera. Todo esto tiene una razón, y es una que tiene bastante sentido para el personaje. El mejor Joker de la historia es el que todo el...
