There is absolutely no shortage of villains in the next big Spider-Man film. No Way Home will see the famed web-slinger take on the likes of Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Electro, Lizard, and Sandman, but it’s a bad guy we won’t see that star Tom Holland wants to face off against next. In a recent interview with Fandango, the British heartthrob reveals it’s Jared Leto‘s Morbius, the Living Vampire, that he wants Spider-Man to battle on the next film. Holland cites the terrifying nature of Leto‘s character as part of his attraction to the potential future battle. Check out his full explanation in the following tweet posted to Fandango’s feed:
Holland must enjoy a good fright, considering it’s also the reason he lists Willem Dafoe‘s Goblin as one of his favorite antagonists to film with thus far. Although Morbius is a natural fit for Blade’s rogue’s gallery, the character actually originates from the pages of Spider-Man. Morbius has been a recurring foe for the wall-crawling hero over the past several decades and was famously featured in a large role on Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
Fans will get their first live-action glimpse of the Living Vampire’s full power when Morbius drops in theaters on Jan. 28, 2022. The Daniel Espinosa film follows the story of Leto‘s Dr. Michael Morbius, a talented medical professional who gains vampire-like abilities after a dangerous attempt at curing his own rare blood disease.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters later this month.
