Jared Leto will be Spider-Man's twelveth-most-popular bad guy in the superhero film.

Morbius' trailer for the first time in two years features'some kind of bat radar'

A new trailer has been released for the Spider-Man sequel Morbius. It stars Jared Leto playing Dr. Michael Morbius. He is an ailing scientist who accidentally transforms himself into a "pseudo-vampire" in his quest for a cure for his rare condition.

Morbius, even by the Spider-Man universe standards, is a very unusual film. Morbius reimagines the character as a C-list Spider-Man villain. He is conflicted between his duties as a doctor and his newfound bloodlust.

The trailer gives a general overview of the character. It also includes his origin story, super-strength, speed, and "some form or bat radar." He also has a vampire-esque desire for blood. Morbius, however, isn't technically a vampire.

The film was originally scheduled to be released on July 10, 2020. However, it was delayed many times by the closure of theaters during COVID-19. It will finally arrive in theaters on January 28, 2022.

The big question is how Morbius fits in the larger Marvel movie universe. Morbius, a Sony-produced movie, is not part of the Marvel Studios-produced MCU series. This includes Spider-Man Homecoming and Spider-Man Far From Home. In the trailer's last shots, Morbius refers to Venom, which suggests some Sony-movie crossover. Michael Keaton seems to be reprising his role of the Vulture, which he played previously in Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: Homecoming. There could be more crossovers, as evidenced by the Venom: Let There Be Carnage scene and the multiversal shenanigans in Spider-Man: The Way Home.

Morbius outlines the challenges Sony faces as it builds out its Spider-Man superhero franchise. How do you create an interconnected universe with Spider-Man villains and side characters?
