In the past few months, many people have been sharing memes related to horrifying superhero movies disease, the Stars well-known method actor Jared Leto as a living vampire guy or something… look, I haven’t seen the movie, ok? Anyway, all these memes, jokes, and online bunnies were fun, but things are getting out of hand. Sony – probably seeing all the renewed interest in disease and all things morbin’ – has now brought the film back to the cinemas. What did we do?
disease was published in April too many negative reviews. For those who don’t know, it’s a Sony Marvel film, not an MCU joint. This means it can tease at connections other popular, successful MCU filmsbut will probably never really get to participate in all the money-making fun iron man
Earning only about $170 million at the box office, disease should have slipped into the night to die in a field or whatever happens to unsuccessful comic book movies. But the future Oscar winner got a second wind upon its digital streaming release, after which the disease Memes exploded thanks in large part a Twitch channel that began streaming the film 24/7. Here’s what my boxis Jeremy Winslow reported last week:
Thanks to the distribution of the film on Twitch since at least May 24, a flood of disease Memes have started to infiltrate the internet. As is Twitter user Rama_Firmansya hilarious “History of disease memes” a timeline from 2016 to 2022, showing our progress from Hugh Mungus to Amongus to Morbius. There are a variety of box art memes out there disease As a nintendo ds, Switchand Wii Game – a trilogy, if you will. Hell, I even discovered an entire twitch channel called morbing_man that was only streaming disease Meme before the company took it to space. The memes are everywhere at this point, like a virus. Like a… morbius?
And all of this has led to something very strange. Sony apparently brought the film back to theaters in response to all this newfound enthusiasm and online morbine. As reported by Exhibitor Relations on TwitterSony has confirmed this disease will be again this weekend in 1,037 cinemas, more than two months after the first opening. And I’ve already spotted at least a few people buying tickets.
Sony has yet to confirm why the film is returning to so many theaters so long after its initial release. It’s safe to assume it has something to do with the sudden surge in online chat, but you never know. Maybe Sony just really liked it disease and wanted to share it with people.
my box has contacted Sony about the film’s sudden return to theaters.
Unfortunately, all of this brouhaha could lead to an even darker future where disease gets a sequel. And of course, we all laugh heartily about the “Morbin time” Jokes, but it’s time to stop. The world doesn’t have to give possible cult leader Jared Leto a successful C-class superhero franchise, let alone more money. Please stop morbining so much folks. There’s still time. We can still stop Sony from making it 2nd disease
Maybe you think it won’t be that bad? Maybe you even liked the first film? But if we do get a sequel, you better believe that Sony will be stuffing the folks behind it with memes, inside jokes, references to the existing memes, and, god forbid, more morbin.
But then again, does that sound… amazing?
Okay, never mind, I’m in. Wreck your brains and bring us a horrible, meme-filled, way too late sequel that totally misses the trend and ends up being a wild shitshow. Maybe the will the living vampire finally kill and with any luck Leto’s career.
