Morbius: Sony’s Marvel Movie Reportedly Receives Negative Early Reviews
Morbius, Sony’s upcoming Marvel movie was originally set to be released in July 2020, but after no less than seven delays, we still didn’t get a chance to see it. And according to the first reviews, it seems like the movie allegedly won’t be worth such a long waiting.
Although we are still waiting for the first official reviews and numbers at review-aggregation websites like Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, some of the very first reviews that surfaced on Twitter are apparently very negative. Although some of the tweets start with “I’ve heard…”, which means that the authors of those tweets haven’t seen the movie yet, they’ve said that the movie is allegedly messy, boring, uncalculated, and without consistency. One of the authors pointed out there are some easter eggs, but the movie generally isn’t worth watching at the theater.
You can check the tweets below. Do you think they’re trustworthy?
“Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but when his experiment goes wrong, he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.” — Morbius, official synopsis
Morbius will be the third movie set in Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, after the first two Venom movies. The movie was filmed in 2019, and the first trailer was revealed in January 2020, back when it was expected that the movie will be released in July 2020. But, the movie was delayed many times, all the way to 2022, and the latest delay moved it from January to April 1.
Honestly, we cannot wait to remove this movie from our watchlist, and we wouldn’t bet the movie will achieve some success at the box office. The movie’s budget is reportedly $75 million dollars, we’ll see if the movie will manage to return the invested money, and still make enough to be called a success. For comparison, Venom 2, which was released last October, grossed $502 million against the $110 million budget.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius is starring Jared Leto in a titular role, and Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson in supporting roles. Michael Keaton is also reprising the role of Adrian Toomes he played in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
