What time is it? It’s true! It’s MORBIN HOUR. Still! While Sony still clings to their part of Spiderman, they take a chance and release a sequel to Jared Leto’s. Morbiusas Morbius 2 now gets the green light.
If audiences thought memes would keep the villain-turned-doctor away, they did quite the opposite. Sony saw the memes plastered on social media and gives us more Jared Leto in Morbius 2. Although the bloodsucking thriller served up a pretty inadequate buffet on Rotten Tomatoes, dropping a 15% critic score, that’s not stopping Sony from exploring this story further.
Michael Roman, host of everything always, reports that Sony thinks it can still step in and undo the damage by coming up with a sequel to Morbius. sony Morbius 2 will again rely heavily on the star power of Jared Leto. While Leto’s peculiar yet powerful presence wasn’t enough to keep the seats occupied, the studio continues to push forward with a sequel.
The film ended up rushing in with a worldwide box office of $163 million. From a budget of 75 million dollars, Sony decided to reissue Morbius, although the result was not what the studio had hoped for. Much like Matt Smith’s Loxias Crown kept Morbius guessing until the very end, Sony was disappointed as their re-release only made a total of $300,000. Still, Sony is betting on Jared Leto to have more success with Morbius 2.
As Sony once again explores the world of living vampires with Jared Leto and (Morbus 2? More from Morbin?) Marvel Cinematic Universe kingpin Kevin Feige is pioneering with the next Madame Weband Kraven the hunter movies. Morbius makes audiences both excited, relieved, and a little hesitant about these upcoming Marvel installments.
Aaron Taylor Johnson’s movie Kraven the hunter received a whopping nine-month extension to its release date. Moving from January 2023 to October 2023. While Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeny are coming Madame Web, only got his eight legs on a four-month extension. One wonders if the alleged involvement of Kevin Feige in certain parts of Madame Web get that shorter extension, and will he have any say in Jared Leto and Morbius 2?
While theater audiences weren’t too fond of the night movie’s bloodsucker, cozier, couch surfer, movie streamers are gaining a new appreciation for Morbius. Like most films, it breathes another undead breath on the mega streaming platform: Netflix. According to Business Insider, at the beginning of September it was the number 1 movie on Netflix, which could explain why Sony is moving forward with Jared Leto and Morbius 2.
While in-person moviegoers and Netflix and chill streamers may differ, Sony must breathe a slight sigh of relief that their take on this character from the Sony Spider-Man universe is being well-received, and banking on Jared Leto. in Morbius 2 will get better results.
Sony could be taking a huge risk with Jared Leto and Morbius 2but they also bet on this universe of Spider-Man which also includes Madame Web, Kraven the hunterand El Muerto.
