Its Morbin Time Hits Netflix Servers As Morbius Is Now Available To Stream On The Streaming Platform
The film's well-known "tagline" signals the addition of Morbius to Netflix's streaming selection and informs viewers that "Morbin' Time" has finally come.
On March 10, 2022, Morbius was first shown in theaters. Both viewers and critics mostly disapproved of the film. After online "fans" inundated social media with memes praising the movie, Sony decided to rerelease Morbius on June 3 in 1,000 U.S. theaters. Although Morbius bombed at the box office both times, internet enthusiasm and explicitly satirical memes promoting the movie have persisted unabatedly.
The phrase "It's Morbin' time," a parody of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series' "It's morphin' time," is arguably the most well-known of these. Despite never having been said or featured in any promotional materials, many Morbius fans have come to credit the remark to the movie's lead as sort of a catchphrase.
Leto plays Michael Morbius, the title character in the film Morbius, which is based on the same-named Marvel Comics character. As he searches for treatment for the blood disease that has troubled him since infancy, Leto's character undergoes a transformation in the movie. The main vampire adversary of the movie Morbius is played by Matt Smith from Doctor Who as Lucien, nicknamed Milo, Morbius' adopted brother who has the same sickness.
On September 7, the official Netflix Geeked Twitter account posted that "it's Morbin' time," confirming that the movie has been added to the Netflix streaming collection. Additionally, the article featured various pictures from the movie, including Jared Leto's now-famous vampiric gaze.
Smith has already spoken candidly about his involvement with the critically panned film Morbius. Smith said, "Yeah, it was thrown under the bus. "But you simply have to accept it. What are you going to do next? At the end of the day, we're not saving any lives—just it's a movie. It didn't quite work out for whatever reason, and... it is what it is." Never say never, as the saying goes, was Leto's evasive reply when asked if he would consider returning for a Morbius sequel. When asked if he would return to the DC Extended Universe to play the Joker, he gave virtually exactly the same response.
