The Living Vampire is coming to theaters.
The first trailer from Jared Leto’s Morbius the living vampire dropped, and fans are going crazy. Not only for how Morbius looks but for the fact that Michael Keaton’s Vulture is in the movie.

Seeing Keaton’s Vulture was something not to expect. People were thinking that this movie was going to make the Venom approach and not introduce anyone else from the spider-verse. However, people were wrong, and we were hit with a surprise appearance by Micheals Keatons, Vulture.
What does Vulture’s appearance mean?
Keaton Made his appearance as Adrian Toomes/Vulture in 2017’s Spider-man Homecoming. Seeing him in the movie trailer means that Morbius is in the Tom Holland Spider-man universe. Hence, introducing him means that Spider-man and Morbius can meet later on in a movie or this movie. No confirmation of spidey making a cameo in the film has yet been confirmed. But fans wouldn’t be mad if Tom Holland made an appearance.
Along with this movie. It has been announced that there will be another Venom movie. Since its partnership with Marvel, Sony can take advantage of the popularity of Spider-man and make spin-off movies from other characters from the spider-verse. It’s an exciting thing and can profit billions if done correctly. So, you can’t be mad at Sony… unless they trash these movies.

Who is Morbius, The Living Vampire?
Dr. Michael Morbius is a genius biologist who was born with a severe blood condition. He was born in Greece by a single mother. Due to his blood condition. Michael had an isolated childhood and had no friends growing up. Morbius was already an intelligent person. But him being isolated as a child led to him going deeper into his studies to become a Nobile Prize-winning biologist, trying to find a cure for his blood condition. Michael starts experimenting on his self with bats DNA and shock therapy. These experiments led to Michael becoming Morbius, the living vampire.
This will be Jared Leto’s second go as a comic book character. His first comic role was playing The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad. A lot of people didn’t like him as The Joker. But that’s only because he didn’t get a chance to shine. So I’m excited to see what he does with Dr. Morbius. And to see how the movie will turn out.
