After the success of "Venom," Sony is continuing to expand its "Spider-Man" spinoff universe, with another film set to follow a villain who antagonizes the webslinger in the comics. And now, the new movie's titular star has revealed a mysterious first image from the set.

Jared Leto, who is set to headline "Morbius," took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a snap marking the beginning of production.

In the image, Leto can be seen brooding behind a clapperboard, with only his eyes and what appears to be long hair visible. That's obviously not a lot to go on (real talk: it's basically nothing), but it's still exciting to get a glimpse behind the scenes on the project, which has a pretty twisted premise -- and thus seems like a perfect fit for the notoriously oddball Leto.

The film follows Dr. Michael Morbius (Leto), a biochemist who attempts to cure his own fatal blood disease using an experimental treatment derived from the DNA of vampire bats. Instead, he turns himself into Morbius, a.k.a. the Living Vampire, who has fangs, super strength, and an insatiable lust for human blood.

"Morbius" also stars "The Crown" alum Matt Smith, and is directed by Daniel Espinosa ("Life"). It's scheduled to hit theaters on July 31, 2020.
