A first trailer for the film was released back in January 2020 when the film was supposed to arrive in the summer of 2020.
That trailer, seen above, created quite a bit of buzz about the film given it included a poster of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man suit from the PlayStation 4 Marvel’s Spider-Man video game. That suit became available in the game via DLC.
Not only did it include Maguire’s Spider-Man suit, but Michael Keaton appearing to reprise his role as Vulture from the Marvel Cinematic Universe also showed up in a stinger scene at the end of the trailer.
Keaton’s character confronts Morbius saying, “What’s up doc?” However, he can also be heard saying, “Michael Morbius, got tired of doing the old good-guy thing huh?”
Morbius stars Jared Leto as the titular character. It also features Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.
The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa based off a scree story and screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless. The movie is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster. Louise Rosner and Emma Ludbrook are executive producers.
The movie is expected to hit theaters on January 28, 2022.
