[MOVIES] ‘MORBIUS’ TRAILER RELEASED

The next character in the Spider-Man universe to get a movie is Morbius.

Played by Jared Leto, the transformation seem to be appreciated by fans. Morbius, the Living Vampire is, much alike Venom, an anti-hero, initially introduced as a villain.

He first debuted in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 and it was the first issue of the series written by someone other than Stan Lee – instead created by writer Roy Thomas and originally designed by penciler Gil Kane. It was back in October 1971, after the same year’s lifted ban on vampires and certain other supernatural characters by the Comics Code Autorithy, which was decided in February 1971.

Morbius will be the second comic book portrayal for Jared Leto. The first one was the Joker in the DC Extended Universe.

PLOT:
Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

In US theaters July 31st.

OWN OPINION:
We get a short glimpse of how he *REALLY* looks like in the vampire form. There’s also a brief cameo from a familiar character in the MCU. You SHOULD SEE THIS!!!

THE BEST-SELLING SUPERHERO VIDEOGAME OF ALL-TIME IN THE US

Swedish Gamereactor reports that Mat Piscatella from the NPD-group (market research company of the US videogames sales) is listning Marvel’s Spider-Man as the best-selling superhero video game of all-time in the U.S.

I don’t think the game has not quality to be the biggest ever but considering it’s a PS4 exclusive (and therefore available only on Sony’s console) and not multiplatform – as the Arkham series – and released lesser than a year ago, it’s admirable.

Here’s the tweet:

FIRST PLANS FOR MCU’S PHASE 4 REVEALED

San Diego Comic Con is THE PLACE of reveal for the biggest geeky news. Last night, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took on Hall H and disclosed their plans for what is known to all as Phase 4. As of now, 10 movies and tv shows are announced. The GREAT news is that all of the projects are slated for release between May 1st 2020 to November 5th 2021. My 2 cents? There will be MORE to come. Can’t say we’ve not been well threated by Marvel till now, right? Seems like they will continue to please us, so follow with me through the announcements:

Most probably it will be a prequel series. Not a big surprise, rather something that fans have been asking for a while and a project rumored by many.

If you’ve seen Endgame, it seems natural to explore the duo. Some fans expected at least a movie, but let’s just not rule out the series yet, it could become something special.

WandaVision

Also a tv series, focused on Wanda and Vision. It’ll be interesting to see how Vision makes a comeback. The events will lead to Doctor Strange 2.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

Probably MY favorite character of the MCU gets a second solo movie, described as the universe’s first horror movie. Yep, I’m ALL IN and intrigued. Hints at the Multiverse (duh!).

The show will follow the character after he escaped with the Tesseract in 2012 – an event that occured thanks to Endgame.

Blade

Blade, played by Wesley Snipes was an instant classic. It’s one of Phase 4’s projects and the half-human/half-vampire will be portrayed by Mahershala Ali – something that seems to make LOTS OF FANS more than pleased.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
Feige made a surprise announcement at the end saying that he didn’t have time to address where the Fantastic Four or X-Men would end up in the franchise.
