Morbius is here and it goes quite well. But the journey so far has not been so smooth, not only because delays covid-19but due to his methods his star, Jared Leto.

In an interview with Uproxx, Morbius Director Daniel Espinosa has confirmed a not-so-weird rumor about his star. Obviously, Leto was so devoted to his physical limitations that he impersonated his character, Dr. Michael Morbius, who used his character’s crutches even when the cameras were not moving. And the time it took him to walk to and from the bathroom delayed production. As a result, it was agreed that Leto would use a wheelchair to get him to and from the bathroom, speeding up the process.

“I think what Jared thinks, what Jared thinks, is that somehow he needed the pain of those moves, even when he played the normal Michael Morbius, because it hurt all his life,” Espinoza said. “Even though he is alive and strong, there must be a difference. “Hello, man, these are the processes of the people.” And although Espinosa confirmed the phenomenon, he did not hit it in the slightest. “All actors believe in procedures. “And you, as a director, support what makes it as good as you can,” he said.

All of this is interesting because it’s further confirmation of a trend we’ve been following here on io9 for quite some time: tJared Leto hat can be a threat to his co-stars. Do not forget that the actor admitted that he sent his own Suicide team cast anal beads and used condoms, before walking back (also do not forget and dead animalsallegedly). He also turned Blade Runner 2049 completely blind, because his character, Niander Wallace, was blind. “It was like watching Jesus enter a temple,” said then-director Denny Villeneuve. “Everyone became extremely silent and there was a kind of sacred moment. Everyone was in awe. It was so beautiful and powerful – I was moved to tears. “

Which, we assume, is the intended answer here. Leto’s method of action can generally produce very impressive results on the screen. But off screen, if a movie is delayed, that’s a bigger problem.
