First Look At Tyrese In Morbius

Tyrese Gibson joins Jared Leto and the Sony Spider-Man spinoff universe as the actor reveals a first look at his mystery character in Morbius on Instagram.

"On set in London, UK standing next to a man who is brilliant beyond...... Our director Daniel Espinosa!!" posted Gibson. "Over our first private dinner we both talked about and was singing the praises of a real one... Denzel Washington DanieL directed Denzel in the film SAFE HOUSE!!!! And now he’s directing me opposite Jared Leto in this #MarvelMovie #MORBIUS I have to apologize I get nervous cause he directed my all time sometimes my all time HERO he’s been on my #BucketList of directors I’ve always wanted to dance with...... And it happened!!!!!!!!!! #InTheWoods#OneOfGodsGiftsToActors on set he speaks our language.... #Morbius2020#MarvelMovie."

Morbius has a July 31, 2020 release date also starring Adria Arjona, Jared Harris and Matt Smith.

No plot details are known but we can guess that similar to Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock and Venom, Jared Leto as Morbius will be more of an anti-hero than a straight up villain.

In the comics, Dr. Michael Morbius has a rare and fatal blood disease, and when he attempts to find a cure becomes Morbius the Living Vampire and has numerous run-ins with Spider-Man.
