Morbius received 5 Razzie Awards nominations. Worst superhero movie ever?

The Jared Leto Spider-Man villain movie got 5 nominations for the Golden Raspberries, awards given to some of the worst films of each year.

The Golden Raspberry, better known as the Razzies, have already published the nominee list for the 2023 “awards”. A pretty harsh honor, if you take into account that these statues highlight the worst of the worst the movie industry was capable of releasing during the past 12 months. Among the lucky nominees this time around, there’s a clear favorite: Morbius.

The Sony Pictures and Marvel movie, a spin-off of Spider-Man based on one of the most famous villains/anti-heroes of the wallcrawler, became a living meme when it released in theaters this past March 2022. The critics were ruthless (5.2 on IMDB, 4.5 on FilmAffinity, 1.6 on Rotten Tomatoes), and the public held on to it as a joke.

As time went on there were so many jokes about it that Sony even dared to relaunch it in theaters to exploit its surge in popularity, only managing to have a second failure on the big screen. Morbius was proof that the human is the only animal to trip twice on the same stone.

The superhero movie has been nominated for the awards for Worst Movie, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Actor, and Worst Actress. Will we see Jared Leto or any of the other nominees receive their award with grace? However it goes down, it’s clear that Morbius is on its way to infamy.
