Remember when actor Tyrese Gibson took to social media to announce that the first “Morbius” trailer would see the light of day on this dreary Monday?
Could it have been just yesterday that the actor set the Twitter-sphere aflame with the revelation?
Well, yeah, it was. And now it looks like Sony may have another Tom Holland on their hands though we doubt Gibson would care.
On Monday (Jan. 13), the studio that “brought you Spider-Man and Venom” (as it boasts in the trailer) and “in association with Marvel” unleashed the first official trailer for the upcoming flick.
The two-and-a-half-minute clip introduces the viewer to Dr. Michael Morbius, who was born with a rare blood disease that should have killed him, but somehow, he’s managed to persevere. Instead of letting the condition consume him, he decides to take matters into his own hands to help people with the little time he has left.
And thus begins his tale of becoming a living vampire.
Check out the full trailer above, which features several Spider-Man easter eggs and a special cameo at the end.
Is it possible that we may finally get that long-promised Sinister Six film? Only Sony, “in association with Marvel,” knows.
“Morbius” hits theaters July 31.
