Much-Maligned Spider-Verse ‘Morbius’ Chapter Checks In With $11.4 Million Friday, Total of $17.1 Million

House business The much-maligned Spider-Verse ‘Morbius’ chapter checks in with $11.4 million on Friday,…

“Morbius” lives, in a way.

The much-maligned Marvel-Sony movie starring (Oscar) Jared Leto arrived last night with $11.4 million. That brings its total, including Thursday previews, to $17.1 million. It’s shooting for a $40 million opening weekend.

“Morbius” has a low 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Few critics or bloggers liked it. Many have called it the worst Marvel movie of all time.

Ah, the ups and downs. From “Spider Man: No Way Home” to this. From “Black Panther” to this. That’s life!

“Morbius” is an episode of the Spider-Verse but so far more chapters, at least told like this, won’t happen.

Check in tomorrow.
