The first trailer for Sony’s Morbius does an excellent job setting up the core story of the film, a doctor transforms into a vampire after attempting to cure his rare blood disease. But it also features subtler moments that offer significance. These are the small details you missed in the Morbius trailer.
The first 45 seconds or so of the Morbius trailer establish that the doctor is suffering greatly because of his illness. He’s shown with wires taped to his head and neck, struggling to walk with forearm crutches, and hunched over a bed as a fellow doctor meticulously counts the vertebrae of his spine protruding from his skin. In a voiceover, he says: «I’m running out of time.»
It soon becomes clear that Dr. Morbius intends to cure his blood disease using non-traditional medicine and his own devices, which raises a red flag to the woman working alongside him.
This line is more than just the musings of a concerned colleague, it’s foreshadowing of the highest degree. The woman who speaks it is Martine Bancroft, Morbius’ fianceé played by Adria Arjona. Throughout the Marvel comics, Martine actually dies several times, is resurrected, and eventually becomes a living vampire herself. It’s unclear at this point in time, however, whether the Morbius film will depict the death, subsequent revival, and transformation of Martine.
