Looks like Jared is making the switch from DC to Marvel!
The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Jared Leto is set to play a role in a new Marvel-based spin-off Although playing The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad, he has signed on to star in Morbius, based on a character from the Spider-Man comic books.
According to ABC Radio, first introduced in a 1971 issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, Morbius is a former scientist who develops vampiric abilities — lust for blood, fangs, superhuman strength — following a failed experiment to cure himself of a rare blood disease. He starts off as one of Spider-Man’s enemies, before developing into more of an anti-hero.
Meanwhile, Leto is also reportedly set to reprise his role as the Clown Prince of Crime in a standalone Joker film.
Not to mention, he’s out on the road with Thirty Seconds To Mars all in the meantime. Is there anything this man CANNOT do?!?!
