While Jared Leto is known for his seriousness and commitment to his roles, the actor is acknowledging the Morbius memes and decided to have some fun with the character’s “It’s Morbin’ time” catchphrase that doesn’t actually exist.

Based on the character created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane in 1971, Morbius saw the introduction of Jared Leto as Marvel’s anti-hero Morbius the Living Vampire. Joining him were Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Milo, Adria Arjona (Good Omens) as Martine Bancroft, Jared Harris (The Crown) as Morbius’ mentor, and Tyrese Gibson (Fast and the Furious) as an FBI Agent, while Michael Keaton reprised his role as Adrian Toomes/ Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming.
“One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius,” reads the synopsis. “Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?
Morbius was directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.
