Jared Leto Will Star In Spider-Man Spinoff Movies

Just when you thought there wasn't anything else for Jared Leto could take on, he does more!

It has just been announced that the 30 Seconds To Mars frontman and actor will take on yet another comic book movie role! He's already played The Joker (and intends to do it again) and now he's stepping into the Marvel universe as well. 

What is Jared Doing? He's taking on the lead role in a Spider-Man spinoff movie series to play a vampire named Michael Morbius.

According to Comicbook.com, Leto plays "a scientist in search of a cure to his rare blood disease in the Marvel Comics universe. One of his experiments ends up giving him vampire characteristics, such as thirst for blood and aversion to sunlight. However, because he tries to control his impulses, Morbius only bites and feeds on criminals." 

Leto himself confirmed the news in an Instagram post featuring the character.
