Twitter Joins in on the Morbius Memes

Twitter is now getting in on the Morbius memes that are currently going around on the internet. If you’ve been using Twitter in the last 10 days, you might have seen the rise of Jared Leto joke content on the social media platform.

But now, even Twitter Movies has decided that "It's Morbin' Time." Or rather, It's Morbin' o'clock according to Twitter’s highly-accurate rendering. It will be very interesting to see what Sony will do after all these memes have popped up in the recent weeks.

Despite the reaction from the audiences at the box office, something about the strange mixture of elements in the Morbius film has social media creating strange posts and fan art about Morbius. After all the attention that the film is getting, will that enthusiasm for weird humor actually translate to a sequel? Or will the next time the audiences see the character being tangled with Spider-Man.

As of now, it’s still hard to say, but the brands have already found this meme and that means the people at the studio must have been aware of it by now too.

When Morbius was first released, some of the actors had to respond to the underwhelming Rotten Tomatoes score. Al Madrigal, playing Agent Rodrigues in Morbius, said in an interview with ComicBookMovie that he was at peace with the whole situation. He had a blast, and whatever the audience think of the movie is completely out of his hands.

"Whatever. It's part of it [Laughs]. I really don't care. I got to spend two and a half months in London living in Chelsea and riding a bike around. I went to Amsterdam on the weekends. I went to a Tulip festival," Madrigal said. "I had the time of my life. Even though you didn't see my scenes with Michael Keaton and Jared Leto…I did weapons training. I went to the BFI almost every single day and hung out and had coffee and watched movies. It was the time of my life. I did a ton of stand-up at Top Secret and went to the Bill Murray theatre and was hanging out there a little bit. So, again, one of the best times of my entire career. The end product of what you're seeing…I can't control that."

You can check out Sony’s description of the Morbius film: One of the most compelling and conflicted characters in Sony Pictures Universe of Marvel Characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?"

Spider-Man’s spin-off film Morbius was released back on April 1, 2022 in theaters.
