The clip opens with Dr. Morbius in dire straits with his fiancée, Martine Bancroft (Adria Arjona), at his side. He looks frail, sickly, and struggles to maintain his posture with various medical devices attached to his body, so he lays down on a medical chair, and she straps him in. Mere moments later, though, he’s missing from his confinement, and when he reappears, he’s transformed into a vampire. One of the armed guards on the ship fires his gun at him, prompting Morbius to go on the offensive. He’s further enraged when the other men accidentally harm Bancroft right in front of him.
In no time at all, Morbius is leaping from wall to wall, using his metahuman strengths to wipe out his attackers. He chases the crew all about the ship, but they soon realize that running and fighting are useless against such a monster. The not-so-good doctor kills everyone in his path before he comes to and returns to his human form, taking a moment to look at his reflection and register his changed physique. All in all, this scene is full of interesting visuals and hard-hitting action that perfectly encapsulates the danger Morbius’ vampire side presents.
Will Dr. Morbius use his newfound powers for good? Or will he succumb to the temptation of evil? We’ll find out when “Morbius” hits the big screen on January 28, 2022.
