Avi Arad Teases Morbius' New Look & More Marvel Movies Coming
[March 21, 2019] | By JK Schmidt (comicbook.com)
According to producer #AviArad, who produced Sam Raimi's original #SpiderMan trilogy and Into the #SpiderVerse, fans should expect a lot from the upcoming #JaredLeto movie #Morbius — and more characters to come. “Wait until you see the way he looks, what we have done with this character, you will love it,” Arad said to #Deadline. “There are so many other great characters on the way, too. You will see. We’re just getting started.” "This is the great thing for us now, that an actor like [Leto], and an actor like [Venom star] Tom [Hardy] wanted to have their own character. But the character they love," Arad previously said to Collider. "Both of them, very hard to get them to do a movie. You actually cannot get them. We went in, we sat with them, and everybody told us, 'Oh, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.' Nothing. That’s what he wanted to do." While some speculated the film could be rated R, much like how people thought Venom would be rated R, producer Matt Tolmach cast doubt on those assumptions. "I don’t think there’s a rule written somewhere in stone that all of them have to be one thing," Tolmach said. "I think we’ve all talked about, 'Well, if one of these presents itself in a way…' Look, we have all seen, as you’ve said, the R-rated versions of these movies now working. So, that’s out there. You can succeed to a staggering degree." Morbius The Living Vampire is currently set to premiere in theaters on July 31, 2020.
Fans can expect to start hearing more about the project “soon,” Tolmach told ComicBook.com. “We’re obviously working on Morbius now. That’s sort of next up for us.” #MattTolmach said #Leto “loves the character" and he expects “awesomeness” from the Academy Award-winning actor, who famously took a method approach when unleashing his take on the Joker in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad.
