Sony has been sitting on Morbius for shut to 2 years at this level, and it wouldn’t be unfair to say that at no level has the thrill ever been notably optimistic.
As one of many pandemic’s longest-delayed motion pictures, Jared Leto’s Residing Vampire has needed to sit on the sidelines and watch fellow Marvel Comics diversifications Spider-Man: No Approach Residence, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Eternals, Black Widow, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings do stable enterprise on the field workplace, patiently awaiting his flip.
That lastly occurs one week from right now when the newest installment in Hollywood’s different shared Marvel universe involves theaters, however the first wave of early reactions most actually don’t paint a vastly encouraging image. Nevertheless, as you possibly can see beneath, Morbius not less than seems to be delivering on the pretty low expectations.
It’s by no means an excellent signal when a blockbuster tendencies forward of launch as a result of folks assume it’s going to suck, by no means thoughts the very fact social media customers had been already voicing their displeasure over the post-credits scenes that had been purported to be underneath embargo, so issues aren’t wanting all that rosy for Morbius.
Leto would possibly find yourself returning when the inevitable Sinister Six crossover occurs, however the possibilities of the stricken antihero main his personal multi-film standalone sequence are starting to develop slimmer by the day, even when we’re not solely shocked by the final sense of apathy to be greeting director Daniel Espinosa’s newest.
Morbius could nicely prime the field workplace in its opening weekend as a consequence of an absence of direct competitors, however that would develop into the very best case state of affairs.
