Morbius Director Reacts To 17% Score On Rotten Tomatoes

Is the score too harsh?

Daniel Espinosa, the director of Morbius, spoke to Insider recently and gave his thoughts on the movie’s low 17% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.

What exactly is a living vampire anyway?

The director chose his words very carefully when asked about the negative reception his movie has received, saying: “It’s a strange thing to make something that is so public”.

Espinosa added that he had a lot of “self-hatred” and would often critcise his own work. He also said he is always trying to be better.

Despite the constant criticism he piles on himself, Espinosa said “there are (still) parts in all of my movies that I'm really proud of”. This is quite a commendable way of looking at things from a director’s standpoint.

Morbius is the latest entry in Sony’s series of Spider-Man villain origin movies to be released, the previous entries being “Venom” and “Venom: Let There Be Carnage”. Speculations are rife that these movies are building up towards a Sinister Six movie in the near future.

Tom Hardy will be back.

The next Spider-Man villain that is going to receive his own solo movie is “Kraven The Hunter”, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, which is set to be released next year.
