Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
Adria Arjona plays "Martine Bancroft."
Jared Leto stars as "Dr. Michael Morbius."
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life).
In an alternate ending to the 1998 movie Blade, the Morbius character was briefly shown wearing a mask as Blade spots him on a rooftop from a distance. Apparently writer David S. Goyer intended for Morbius to be the main villain in a potential sequel, however that idea was eventually scrapped in favor of the Reaper storyline instead.
Based on the Marvel character that first appeared as an antagonist to Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man issue #101. The character would eventually go on to become an antihero and have his own comic series in the early-to-mid 90's.
