Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff movie Morbius has been rumored to be in the works for a while now, but thanks to Jared Leto, we now have confirmation that it is currently in production!

The movie is based off of the character Morbius the Living Vampire from the Marvel comic, a role which Leto himself will be bringing to life.

Leto took to Instagram to share a set photo with the caption, “Caption this… if you dare 🧛‍♀️ 🧛‍♀️ Week 1 down, 11 to go… Get Ready 💪 #MORBIUS @morbiusmovie #notanad.”

The film now has social media accounts set up, and while not much is mentioned about the movie, it does list a release year of 2020.

Check out the first sneak peek, below!

We can’t wait to see Leto bring this living-vampire to life.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting news regarding Sony’s next endeavor into the Marvel Universe.

Venom proved to be quite the success for Sony, pulling in an incredible $855 million on a $100 million budget.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse even managed to snag an Oscar, opening up a whole new world of opportunities for the franchise.

While we eagerly await Spider-Man: Far From Home, we can now look forward to Morbius paving the way for future Spider-Man spinoffs.

It has not yet been revealed if Morbius will push for the R-rating, considering Venom ended up being PG-13.

Producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach spoke with comicbook.com about rating Sony films.

“I don’t think there’s a rule written somewhere in stone that all of them have to be one thing,” Tolmach shares. “I think we’ve all talked about, ‘Well, if one of these presents itself in a way…’ Look, we have all seen, as you’ve said, the R-rated versions of these movies now working. So, that’s out there. You can succeed to a staggering degree.”

Arad adds, “We couldn’t have done Suicide Squad PG-13. Just language, or Deadpool, just language. On language alone, which is obscene. There’s no parent out there, that doesn’t look at their kid, ‘Shut the f-ck up.’ So, it’s not like it’s going to be a shocking situation for them, but if we can make it more accessible because people love the Marvel characters.”
