The production of Morbius made extensive use of digital technology to embed buildings in the New York skyline. Although no scenes were shot in the Big Apple, the studio having preferred to set up in Manchester, London and Atlanta, some general shots of Manhattan were reworked by computer to situate the action in the heart of the American megalopolis. And so it was that Westminster’s Whitehall Court became Milo’s (Matt Smith) home on the Upper East Side. The expression of the wealth of Michael Morbius’ (Jared Leto) best friend, who can be seen several times on screen.
No need to look for this white-walled monument on the edge of Central Park. The latter is actually located in England. A historic Grade II listed building that once housed the offices of MI6 and a private club frequented by Prime Minister Winston Churchill himself. A real piece of history hijacked for the needs of a Marvel superhero movie carried by a vampire tortured by his own impulses.
The release of Morbius, originally scheduled for August 5, 2020, has been pushed back five times due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
