Morbius Rating and Runtime Revealed
The next step in the ever-evolving Sony-slash-Marvel multiverse, Morbius, will be upon us soon, and several new details regarding The Living Vampire’s debut release have now been revealed. With Jared Leto in the lead, both the runtime and the score for Morbius have been released courtesy of Cinemark, which reveals that the film will be 108 minutes long, including credits, and has been rated PG-13 for “for intense footage of violence, frightening imagery, and brief strong language.”
Sony seems to like to fill its Venom-Verse with shorter adventures, with the recent sequel Venom: let there be carnage with a fairly rapid duration of 97 minutes (1 hour and 37 minutes). Completing things in just under 2 hours isn’t a bad thing of course, as long as Morbius has plenty of time to tell a satisfying origin story for the titular Marvel anti-hero and cement the character’s place. in the larger multiversal franchise.
The PG-13 rating, while expected, is sure to worry some fans that Morbius’s fangs are a bit blunt. The last thing we need is more bloodless violence, because we’ve already had more than enough thanks to Venom’s absolutely gore-free head nibble.
Morbius will feature one of Marvel’s most compelling and confrontational characters as Oscar winner Jared Leto is transformed into the enigmatic anti-hero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously stricken with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others who suffer the same fate, Dr. Morbius takes a desperate bet. What at first appears to be a sweeping success soon turns out to be a potentially worse-than-evil cure, turning the good doctor into a confrontational monster.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius stars Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal and Tyrese Gibson alongside Leto, who described the project as “a Jekyll and Hyde story that’s just big and fun, and a little scary at times, which is, I think it’s different for this genre. And I’m excited about it. It should be a big, fun popcorn movie. ”
Morbius will continue to develop the Sony multiverse further, with the most recent images even dropping the name of Tom Hardy’s symbiotic anti-hero, Venom, by name. Oddly enough, the film appears to include elements from all of the Sony and Marvel Cinematic Universe franchises, and will also include Michael Keaton as Spider-Man: Villainous Adrian Toomes AKA The Vulture, which Leto says could lead to the big – The Sinister Six screen debut. “In the cinematic version of Morbius that we’re bringing you now, he’s also part of a much bigger universe,” Leto told Brazil CCXP 2021. “If you’ve seen the latest trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, you know the Multiverse has officially opened and that there are all kinds of opportunities for the bad guys to meet, thrive, and maybe even nurture their most sinister intentions. that I will say for now.
Following a series of delays, Morbius will be released in the United States on January 28, 2022.
