The release date and time for the Morbius trailer has reportedly been revealed. Morbius is one of the many Spider-Man villain films that Sony has planned, and is the next one slated to be released. Morbius was confirmed to be in development in 2017, with Jared Leto soon after signing on as the titular character and Daniel Espinosa directing.
With the film being confirmed for a few years, fans have gotten plenty of updates about Morbius since 2017. Morbius is expected to be even darker than Venom with hints of horror as well. Fans haven’t gotten an official look at Leto’s character from Sony yet, but the actor did share a GIF of Morbius wearing all black in the middle of a busy street. A short Morbius set video also made its way online, but neither this or Leto’s first look gave fans any hints about the movie. However, fans shouldn’t have to wait much longer for information since the trailer is reportedly releasing soon.
According to FandomWire, the trailer for Morbius will be released on January 13 at 6 AM PST. This report lines up with other claims that the trailer will be attached to Sony’s Bad Boys For Life, which releases next week. It’s also worth mentioning that the upcoming trailer is said to be around two and a half minutes in length.
While fans don’t know a whole lot about the plot of the film, there have been a lot of casting announcements. Tyrese Gibson and Jared Harris both joined the cast last March, with Gibson playing an FBI agent and the latter’s role still being unknown. Loxias Crown is expected to be the main villain of the film, a role that Matt Smith is rumored to have been cast in. The only confirmed character in the film besides Morbius is Martine Bancroft, who will be played by Adria Arjona.
With Morbius now in post-production, it’s about time for Sony to drop a trailer. Morbius releases at the end of July, and with the character not being as well known as Venom, Sony needs to be strategic with their marketing material to get people invested in the film. Fans had been asking to see a Venom solo movie for years prior to Venom releasing in 2018, but it was a bit of a surprise when Sony announced Morbius. Fans apparently don’t have to wait much longer for the Morbius trailer, so Sony will no doubt be looking to see how the internet reacts to the first look at the film.
