Morbius, starring Jared Leto as the eponymous character, was a box office flop and was critically lambasted, but the audience response was also somewhat warm. Morbius presently has a 71 percent Rotten Tomatoes audience score. However, Morbius 2 is trending online as fans joke about a sequel to Marvel’s recent vampire film.
Morbius is part of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, alongside Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Morbius has become the subject of Internet meme society since its premiere and subsequent bad reaction, with the film most recently being streamed in its entirety on Twitch.
Morbius 2 was trending on Twitter, with many fans humorously asking for a sequel, maintaining the recent trend of Morbius jokes. The phrase “It’s Morbin’ time” appears frequently in the hilarious fan comments, with many fans asking that Leto utter it in his next appearance as the character.
Morbius is unlikely to have a sequel due to the film’s generally poor box office reaction, although the character might probably appear in a team-up movie later. Despite the humorous tone of those calling for Morbius 2, many Twitter users point out that Sony could misinterpret the memes.
One user sarcastically pointed out:
“THE ALGORITHM DOES NOT UNDERSTAND IRONY. YOU ARE MANIFESTING MORBIUS 2 INTO EXISTENCE.”
It’s unclear whether Morbius will receive a sequel, but fans are certainly enjoying the meme culture that the first film has produced. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
