Actor Musician Jared Leto has signed on to play antihero MORBIUS

SUICIDE SQUAD’S Jared Leto is adding a Marvel-based character into his IMDb filmography with MORBIUS THE LIVING VAMPIRE.

Sony is ready to work on another Marvel-based character. This time, the character is not a webslinger, but a bloodsucker – antihero Morbius the Living Vampire. And the actor playing him is none other than Suicide Squad’s The Joker, Jared Leto.

Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist who had a rare blood disorder. In an attempt to find a cure for his disorder, Morbius works on a biochemical experiment that creates in him vampire-like tendencies such as a thirst for human blood, fangs, and superhuman strength. When he was first introduced, he started as one of Spider-Man’s many antagonists, but was turned into an antihero.

Despite Morbius being based from Marvel comics, there has been no word with DC Entertainment on if would have any effects on Leto’s planned continued role as The Joker.
