Morbius new synopsis (translated):
Doctor Michael Morbius with a genius brain. From an early age he suffered from an incurable blood disease that had no cure. As a doctor, Mobius has saved many lives and won the Nobel Prize, but cannot find a way to cure his illness. Her body is thin and she cannot even walk without crutches. One possibility that only time has passed and that the damn blood has eroded his life. It was an overly dangerous remedy to administer bat serum to your body.
As a result of the treatment, the illness recovers and Mobius's body changes. The complexion returns to the face, and the raised muscles cover the whole body. In addition, Mobius had an eco-location and flight ability that instantly sensed the surrounding conditions, and felt as if he had been reborn, but there was a big price to pay for the treatment. Gradually, he loses consciousness as a normal human being and begins to be driven by the urge to seek blood. And there will be more changes in his body.
Director: Daniel Espinosa
Cast: Jared Leto, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, Michael Keaton
Moribus is due out in theaters on March 19, 2021.
