What is Jared Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars like? A fighter for world peace, environmental defender and motivational speaker. What is Jared Leto of cinematography? Joker, Mr. Nobody, and now, Morbius the Living Vampire from the Marvel Comic. What a striking contrast!

The vampire-themed movie stars Jared Leto, who takes on a role of Michael Morbius, a scientist looking for a cure for a rare blood disease.

However, we couldn’t see anything but a few photos from Morbius film set posted by the actor until now. In March of 2019, Leto confirmed that the movie was in the making with a photo showing the production process. The post was soon followed by some leaked pics and a video showing Leto flying in an orange jumpsuit.

The teasing continued with Leto sharing a clip of his character, standing still in the crowded street. The caption read: “Because no one else will walk this path…this place of shadows, where we do what must be done, no matter the cost.”
