The marketing for Sony’s Morbius hasn’t exactly been all that exciting, and the endless delays certainly haven’t helped matters. In any event, the Jared Leto-starring Marvel movie is finally coming to theaters in just over one week, and today brings the coolest marketing to date.
Over on Twitter, journalist Marcelo Córdova has shared a short video of a Morbius 3D poster currently on display in Milan, Italy, wherein the Living Vampire rips his way through a massive billboard advertising the film. It’s the scariest Sony’s take on the Marvel Comics character has looked to date, and it’s surely attracting a whole lot of attention over there in Milan.

Daniel Espinosa‘s (Life) Morbius takes a bite out of theaters on April 1, 2022.
Sony’s latest Spider-Man spinoff centers on Michael Morbius, a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transforms himself into a living vampire. Though disgusted by his own bloodlust, he chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.
Here’s the full official synopsis from Sony…
“One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® 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. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?”
Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless wrote the script.
