Morbius the living vampire makes the headlines a little earlier than expected.
Sony Pictures is not expected to reach Hall H stadium in San Diego Comic-Con until Friday evening, when the studio is expected to make announcements on its impending film Morbius starring Jared Leto the sucker of eponymous blood. Thanks to a new report by That Hashtag Show we have juicy Morbius information in advance.
The release shared a batch of character breakdowns detailing additional characters from the film directed by Daniel Espinosa.
According to THS Sony seeks to lay two main roles: one, a villain who was close to Dr. Michael Morbius in his early days, but "turns on him" after he turns into a vampire vicious; the other, a "smart and ruthless businesswoman".
The studio audition actors aged between 30 and 40 years old for the old concert, apparently targeting someone like Venom star Ahmed Rice and Bohemian Rhapsody brought Rami Malek to give life to the character.
As the source notes, it is assumed that this role is in fact Emil Nikos, who, in the original comics, was the best friend and laboratory of Morbius who spent a lot of time finding a cure for rare blood of Morbius. disease. When Emil failed in his business, Morbius became a vampire and unfortunately killed his good friend in a moment of extreme bloodlust.
If Morbius really positions Emil as the central villain, Espinosa director and screenwriters Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama will probably have to stray a bit from the tradition to make his inclusion worthy of mention. ;interest. It would not be very satisfying for the main villain to die in the first half hour, is not it? Then, perhaps Morbius will focus primarily on Michael Morbius who fights his blood disease and will see him succumb to it not in the act of opening, but at the same time. heyday of history. In this case, having Emil on board checks.
It is harder to assume who is the second new lead, but rumor has it that she is Morbius's fiancée, Martine Bancroft, who discovers Emil's body after her fiance leases her. murdered. Always faithful, Martine was stuck by Morbius and accepted her new position as a bloodthirsty creature – and eventually turned into a vampire herself. Unlike Emil, there is no obvious inconvenience to including Martine in the movie, so this speculation seems likely enough to come true.
Sony may or may not touch all this information during its CCSD panel on Friday at 21:15 (ET), considering that the focus will be on Tom Hardy's Venom that will be released this October. We are already a little worried about the film directed by Leto as it is, so hopefully we will get a solid confirmation from Sony on some things soon.
According to this new report, Morbius provisionally aims to start production in November.
