If you love vampires and Marvel movies, you may want to know how to watch Morbius online for free and when it will be available to stream on Disney Plus.

Morbius is the third movie in Sony’s new Spider-Man Universe, which started with Venom in 2018 and continued with Venom: Let There Be Carnage in 2021. The fourth movie in the Spider-Man universe is Kraven the Hunter, which is set to premiere on January 13, 2023. The Spider-Man Universe also includes upcoming movies about Madame Web, the Sinister Six, Nightwatch, Jackpot a third Venom movie, as well as shows based on Marvel characters like Silk, Black Cat and Silver Sable.

Morbius is based on the Marvel Comics character Morbius, the Living Vampire, a.k.a. Dr. Michael Morbius, who debuted as an enemy of Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 comic in October 1971. The character—a scientist with a rare blood disease whose attempt to cure himself transforms him into a vampire-like creature with superman powers—is played by Jared Leto, who also plays the Joker in the D.C. Extended Universe’s Suicide Squad movies.

“Look, what I loved about this is it was an opportunity to bring the character to life for the very first time. And it’s harder and harder to do that, because a lot of these incredible, iconic characters have been portrayed,” Leto told Screen Rant in 2022 about what drew him to Morbius. “They’ve been realized before. So, that was really exciting to start from scratch. I was excited to be part of what Marvel’s doing with these characters, and I thought Sony is just doing an incredible job.” He continued, “And I’m also a sucker for a big fun popcorn movie. I think it’s exciting that this is exclusively in theaters, and it’s coming out April 1, at this time where we’re having a little sense of normalcy in some parts of the world. I think that’s really nice as well.”

Leto also opened up about how his lifelong love of vampire led him to Morbius. “You know, I’ve always loved vampires. I love the Anne Rice novels. One of the very first movies I ever saw was Dracula; that black-and-white Dracula. So, I’ve always loved that. I love The Hunger with David Bowie, it was a great film not a lot of people have seen. For me, there’s something iconic about the opportunity,” he said. “It’s one of the roles that you want to play, so it’s great to do a different spin. This isn’t exactly a vampire, but some of those qualities are there.”

He also told the site that he’d be open to starring with Tom Holland—who’s plays Peter Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man movies—in an upcoming Spider-Man film. “Well, I think Tom Holland and I have a date with destiny. I think he is, by the way, just a phenomenal actor. What a great Spider Man. I really think he’s just a terrific talent. But it would be great to get in the ring with him and go head-to-head, for sure,” he said.
