Matt Smith’s Morbius Role Revealed to Be Main Villain

March 7, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Doctor Who alum Matt Smith is reportedly playing the main villain in Sony’s Morbius adaptation. THR reports that Smith will be playing Loxias Crown, described as Morbius’ best friend who suffers from the blood disease that the protagonist does. Loxias is not in the Marvel comic book source, though there was a character named Crown who was a vampire mutant and appeared in 1997’s Spider-Man #76. That said, the details between Crown and how Loxias Crown are described are not similar.

The site also notes that Jared Harris’ role will be that of Morbius’ mentor and Adria Arjona will play the lead role’s love interest. Tyrese Gibson is playing an FBI agent hunting Morbius down. Jared Leto is starring in the film, which is filming in London under director Daniel Espinosa for a July 31, 2020 release.
