Jared Leto Has Been Spotted In The Northern Quarter

Jared Leto has been spotted in Manchester filming a new Spider-Man spin-off.

Manchester’s Northern Quarter has been transformed into New York as a Spider-Man spin-off is being filmed in the city. Jared Leto was spotted this afternoon for the first time on the set of Morbius, which is being filmed around the Stevenson Square and Oldham Street this week.

Morbius tells the story of a biochemist who tries to cure himself of a rare blood disorder but ends up infecting himself with a form of vampirism instead. Yikes.

The 47-year-old was spotted filming a scene outside Leo’s Fish Bar in Oldham Street, he wore a black coat with the hood up, and could have easily passed for an ordinary Manc – if you ignored all the cameras.

Jared Leto stars as Spider-Man villain Dr Michael Morbius and former Dr Who star Matt Smith also appears as Morbius’s Loxias Crown, while True Detective star Adria Arjona plays Morbius’s fiance Martine Bancroft.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to get a glimpse of the action which saw yellow taxis, blue U.S. Mail postboxes,  USA Today and New York Times newsstands and a New York City appear in the Northern Quarter.

Morbius is set for release next summer.
