Matt Smith is an accomplished actor in genre work, having played the Eleventh Doctor in Doctor who and the T-5000 (the physical incarnation of Skynet) in genesis of the terminatorand will soon be seen as Daemon Targaryen in game of Thrones prequel dragon house. This year also marked Smith’s comic book debut, having previously starred in Morbio as Milo, Michael’s surrogate brother of Jared Leto. However, Sony’s third entry in the Spider-Man universe failed to impress critics or the box office, and Smith has now shared his thoughts on Marvel’s comic blitz.
Six months after the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which received better critical acclaim than its predecessor and grossed over $ 506 million worldwide, Morbio, even after being released twice in theaters, it only grossed nearly $ 164 million worldwide and stands at a paltry 16% on Rotten Tomatoes. But Matt Smith doesn’t go away Morbio‘a disappointing performance annoys him, telling him rolling stone:
Morbio saw Matt Smith acting as the main antagonist, with Milo sharing the same blood disease as Michael, taking the same vampire cure to eliminate his condition, despite being warned of the dangers. With Milo succumbing to his bloodlust, Jared Leto’s character was forced to kill his brother with an antibody that eliminated vampirism. Cut to four months of release, Morbio Arguably, he’s now better known for his memes (in which Leto was involved) rather than his actual story, but Smith agrees that the film was not a hit with audiences. He has fulfilled his provisional duties and is content Morbio just be another movie on his resume.
Sony’s Spider-Man universe isn’t going anywhere, like kraven the hunter comes out in January lady of the web, the death Yes poison 3 they are also coming. As for Jared Leto’s Morbius the Living Vampire, the Morbio The film’s post-credits scene showed him encountering Michael Keaton’s vulture, which hails from the Marvel Cinematic Universe but was transported to the Sony universe following the events of Spider-Man: No homecoming. Vulture has offered Morbius to form a team, which has since been confirmed to be the Sinister Six, but it is not yet clear where or when we will see these two again.
