'Morbius' Uses Vampirism as a Queer Allegory

After two months of refusing to see this movie, I have decided that it’s finally Morbin’ time.  In response to the recent onslaught of Morbius memes online, Sony made the hilarious mistake of re-releasing Morbius in theaters last weekend. As anyone with a sense of sarcasm could predict, it bombed at the box office. But this little stunt finally convinced me to watch the movie, if only to laugh at it. And I did laugh—at the terrible script, at the crazy VFX, and at Matt Smith’s quirky dance moves. But something else happened that I didn’t expect—I was surprised by the movie. I was surprised by the queer allegory.  Now, if I had a nickel for each time a Sonyverse Spider-Man villain movie was turned into a queer allegory, I’d have two nickels. That’s not a lot, but it’s weird that it happened twice. I’m referring to Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Interestingly, the movie leans heavily into the queerness of Eddie and Venom’s relationship. Whether accidentally or not, Sony has done the same thing with Morbius, but between the protagonist Michael and antagonist Lucien/Milo.
