AceShowbiz - Jared Leto has once again teased his transformation into Morbius. The singer/actor posted on Twitter on Tuesday, March 5 the first official set photo from the upcoming movie, giving a glimpse of him as the titular vampiric antihero.
Most of Leto's face is hidden behind a clapperboard, but it's clear that it's him in character. The expression on his eyes look brooding as he films a scene in what looks like a laboratory. "1 week down...11 to go... Get Ready #MORBIUS," he captioned the image.
Leto has been teasing his role in the upcoming movie with various videos on social media. In one video posted on February 14, he wished his fans happy Valentine's Day with a clip of him showing off his ripped body in a gym. He mimicked a demon cry that was heard in the video.
Another video had him speaking in mysterious low voice following the first day of filming. "It's pretty fun. Can't wait for you guys to see what we got cooking," he said while he sat in a moving car.
