Jared Leto has taken a quick break between filming scenes of Sony’s solo Morbius film to share some birthday cake and an almost NSFW photo of himself from the set of the upcoming vampire movie.
Posted on Leto’s Instagram, the photo reveals a hot and sweaty, muscular Leto topless and holding a birthday cake with fake blood smudged on his mouth.
The cake is in honor of this year being the tenth anniversary of This Is War, the best-selling album from Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars. To commemorate the event, the band is holding a weekend-long concert mini-festival this September in the Santa Monica Mountains of California.
In the comic books, Dr. Michael Morbius is a scientist who would be transformed into a vampire-like monster. Although initially a Spider-Man villain, the character would later become a hero in his own right, even going as far as headlining his own Marvel NOW! comic book series, 2013’s Morbius: The Living Vampire by Joe Keatinge and Richard Elson.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Life) from a script written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Lost in Space), Sony’s Morbius stars Jared Leto as the titular character, Matt Smith as Loxias Crown, Adria Arjona as Martine Bancroft and Jared Harris. The film will hit theaters July 31, 2020.
