Jared Leto to "method act" his way into the role of MORBIUS

Jared Leto will star in upcoming Spider-Man spinoff movies.

While there are various versions to Cheetah throughout comic book history, the buzz is Wigg will play Minerva as an anthropologist who gets transformed into Cheetah in a ritual in the lost city of Urzkartagan. And now the Oscar-winning actor is set to portray the titular character in Sony's latest film, Morbius.

Sources told Variety that Espinosa met Leto last month in Germany while the Suicide Squad star - who played The Joker in the superhero movie - was touring with his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars.

Plus, Leto is now on tour with Thirty Seconds To Mars in North America in support of the band's latest album, America.

Morbius, a scientist-turned-vampire, will reportedly have Safe House and Life director Daniel Espinosa at the helm of his story.

Trump said he supports the legislation, but it is still unclear if the bills the House plan to vote on have enough votes to pass. President Trump repeatedly, and falsely, blamed Democrats for the practice and said there was nothing he could do to end it.

Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster will produce the movie, and the script has been co-written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.

Morbius was introduced in 1971 by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane in "The Amazing Spider-Man #101".

The super-strong, fanged living vampire fought Spider-Man on a number of occasions, but was often painted as a tragic figure, who was only trying to cure his own rare blood disease. Nobody mention Man-Bat. He debuted in the comics as a villain opposite Spider-Man, but the suggestion seems to be that he'll be an anti-hero here, just as Tom Hardy's Venom is.

Sony has not yet given the film an official release date, but production is expected to begin this year.
