Cool: Morbius

1.15.2020 Hi there! One more for the day. I’ve been hearing a little bit about the upcoming comic film Morbius… Morbius is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel Entertainment and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is intended to be the second film in Sony’s Marvel Universe.   Okay, let me see if I got this…Jared Leto is Michael Morbius, a doctor with a life long blood disease, who experiments with bats. Did I get that correct? Well, take a look at this teaser trailer, which came out Monday…     I’m a bit skeptical about Sony. I always say that Sony should give up Spider-Man to Marvel. They really have no business in the whole comic film game. Sony’s Marvel Universe…yeah right! We’ll just have to see how this goes. Enjoy your Wednesday, be blessed.   Featured Image: Entertainment Tonight
