Hot off the heels of the first Morbius trailer, Jared Harris has managed to squash a major rumor about his character. Fans have been running wild with speculation since last week that Harris could actually be Spider-Man super villain Doctor Octopus.
The appearance of Michael Keaton, who portrayed Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, only added fuel to the flame. However, Harris confirmed on the SAG Red Carpet during an interview with Variety, he will not be portraying Spider-Man villain Doc Ock. When asked about the rumor, he answered with a firm “No.”
Harris speaks about Morbius being a Spiderman universe spinoff, but was very careful not to reveal whom he is actually playing in the film. With all the Spiderman characters on the table for Morbius, the possibilities are endless.
Morbius starring Jared Leto, Jared Harris, Tyrese Gibson, Adria Arjona and Matt Smith opens in theaters on July 31.
