A Twitter thread shares the entire script to Morbius, even including accompanying pictures of the relevant scenes for people to read along with.
A recent thread on Twitter has posted the entire script of Jared Leto’s Morbius and pictures for users to read along with one tweet at a time. The latest entry in Sony’s Spider-Man universe, the film began development shortly after the success of 2018’s Venom, leading to an entire Spidey villain franchise being planned, including films centered around Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web. After some delays, the film finally hit theatres on April 1, 2022. While it was an overall box office success, it was met with mostly scathing reviews and has since become the subject of a plethora of memes and jokes online.

Morbius centers around the titular doctor, Michael Morbius, as he searches for a cure for his rare blood disease, resulting in him becoming a vampire-like being, gaining abilities similar to the supernatural creatures. After essentially becoming a living vampire, the doctor is forced to fight his own brother in order to establish himself as a hero in the eyes of those he loves and in the eyes of New York City. Joining Leto in the star-studded cast are Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.

Now Twitter user fyrishere is helping people experience Morbius in a whole new way, presenting an entire copy-and-paste of Morbius’ script, including both dialogue and cues. Furthermore, pictures of the various scenes were also included alongside the excerpts of the script, visualizing what it ended up looking like onscreen. Many of the replies and quote tweets to the thread seemed to appreciate the humor in the absurdity of tweeting the script out in bite-sized morsels, though many say they’re still not going to read the entirety of the massive thread.
Ever since its release and the subsequent negative reviews that Morbius received from both critics and audiences, the film has become the butt of many jokes on social media over the last several months. The jokes have actually become so prevalent that even the movie’s stars are falling for them. Tyrese made headlines recently when he shared a fake review purportedly written by Martin Scorsese, who is famously critical of comic book movies, praising Morbius. He quickly deleted the post.
This thread is just the latest example of the internet taking shots at the Leto movie, suggesting Twitter users read the movie one tweet at a time over watching it. While most of the attention the movie gets isn’t exactly positive, it certainly has people engaged, for better or worse, which could ironically actually lead Sony to consider a Morbius 2. Whether or not a sequel ever does come, there are plenty of Morbius memes and jokes to enjoy in the meantime.
