Sony’s latest superhero flick Morbius has recently been released in theaters. It stars Jared Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist who accidentally turns into a vampire after trying to find a cure for his rare sickness. The release date of this movie was delayed several times, so people were somewhat excited for this flick that featured Dr. Morbius, who was an anti-hero and Spiderman villain in the comics.
Unfortunately for Sony and Marvel comic fans, the movie was met with bad reviews from critics. It currently has a 5.2/10 IMDB score and an abysmal 17% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes (which is admittedly a bit too harsh, in my opinion). Nonetheless, the point stands that Morbius has not been a great success in theaters so far.
Expectedly, people have taken to Twitter to poke fun at Morbius and its faults. Let’s take a look at some of the best Morbius memes we can find.
The movie hasn’t been out that long, but there’s this amusing trend of memes for Morbius we can call #MorbiusSweep. It consists of people documenting the definitely real slew of attention the movie has gotten. “Morbius fever has swept the nation.”
Morbius has officially passed “Avengers: Endgame” to become the number 1 highest-grossing film ever.

Morbius just needed some tiny tweaks to be the perfect film.
Morbius wasn’t even that bad it just needed better acting, casting, plot, directing, characters, effects, lighting, scenes, structure, soundtrack, and editing

The words “Morbius” and “Discord” should never be together in one sentence.

Petition to add the word “morbed” as a verb in the Oxford dictionary.
the best part of Morbius was when he said "IT'S MORBIN' TIME" and morbed all over those guys

Despite all the funny criticisms and memes against Morbius, the movie has gotten a 70% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Is this another case of Venom, a movie that critics hate but is adored by audiences? Maybe when time passes and more people get to watch and critique the movie, we’ll find out the answer to that question.
