Tyrese Gibson to join the cast of Jared Leto starrer ‘Morbius’
Hollywood actor Tyrese Gibson was roped in to join the cast of Jared Leto starrer ‘Morbius’, a film which is based on the Spider-Man villain of the same name.
Notably, 'Morbius' centers on the Marvel character Dr. Michael Morbius (played by Leto in the film) who is a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself. However, he ended up turning himself into a vampire. In the comics, he gained super strength and fangs, and ended up fighting Spider Man, until eventually becoming something of a hero himself.
'Morbius' was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in 1971's 'Amazing Spider Man No. 101', which was the first issue of the series not written by Spider Man co-creator Stan Lee.
