In the last few days Morbius is literally experiencing a new youth, thanks also to the debut in Digital HD.
People are seeing it, not re-evaluating it, and on more than one occasion the film went viral on Twitter, starring in a lot of memes (it was also broadcast for several hours on Twitch), to the point that it is not wrong to say that it could become, in spite of itself, a cult.

Aware of this, Sony has decided to bring the film back to over a thousand cinemas in the United States, without however clearly explaining this decision (although the reason is obviously to exploit this unexpected popularity). For his part, the protagonist of the film Jared Leto made fun of social media, publishing a video in which we can see him reading the phantom script of a sequel: Morbius 2: It’s Morbin ‘time by Bartholomew Cubbins .
If you are wondering, Bartholomew Cubbins is a character in the works of Dr. Seuss , but it is also a pseudonym often used by Leto himself.

Morbius, the Living Vampire
Morbius was born as an opponent of Spider -Man , but then converted to good after a fight with Blade , evolving into a decidedly more heroic figure. His full name is Michael Morbius , a brilliant scientist suffering from leukemia who, to heal himself, injects himself with the blood of a vampire bat and enters a machine of his own invention, which transforms him – as his nickname suggests – into a living vampire. : shares some characteristics of Marvel’s vampires such as flight, superhuman strength, hypnosis and bloodlust, but not vulnerability to garlic, crucifix, holy water and sunlight (which only weakens it ). He was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kaneon Amazing Spider-Man n. 101 (October 1971), the first issue not written by Stan Lee .
