Jarod Leto jumps ship from DC to Marvel in new vampiric role

Hello, Dr Michael Morbious.

Playing the Joker for DCs Suicide Squad definitely left a sour taste in Jared Leto's mouth.

After controversy over his portrayal of the smiling supervillain surfaced, Leto wasn't invited back by DC to star in the origin movie, Joker (which, of course went to Joaquin Phoenix), so he decided to lend his villainous skills to the Marvel universe.

So, who is he playing? 

Introducing one of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. 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. 

So basically... he's a badass vampire with a heart!

Morbius looks great, and flies into cinemas in July, 2020.
