One of Marvel’s most conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Academy Award winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

The cast of Morbius also includes Matt Smith (Doctor Who, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), Adria Arjona (Good Omens, 6 Underground), Jared Harris (Mad Men, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows), Al Madrigal (Night School, The Way Back) and Tyrese Gibson (The Fate of the Furious, Black and Blue).
