Matt Smith of Doctor Who isn't too fussed about Morbius's disappearance

Matt Smith of Doctor Who isn't too fussed about Morbius's disappearance ...

Morbius did not exactly set the world on fire, nor did the box office, nor Sony's Spider-Man universe. Matt Smith, however, is completely uninterested by its status as a certified flop.

Matt has admitted that while he thinks Morbius "was thrown under the bus," he's okay with that.

Smith told Rolling Stone that his Morbius ideology is "it is what it is." Speaking ahead of the release of House of the Dragon, in which he plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys' younger brother.

"Yeah, it was thrown under the bus," the actor said of the film's response. "But you just have to bear with it. What else are you gonna do?"

Matt continued, "It's a film, and at the end of the day, we're not saving lives." For whatever reason, it didn't quite work out, and it is what it is.

Matt Smith starred as Milo, the vengeful foil to Jared Leto's anti-hero Dr Michael Morbius. While the pair both had a similar vampiric blood condition, Milo's pursuit of a cure was ultimately what set them apart.

Morbius had intended to give Milo more depth, with Smith recently revealing the details of a deleted scene that he wishes had made the final cut.

"There was a whole sequence with the girl in the bar where Milo met her a time before and then they went back and he fell for her and then she really hurt him," explained the veteran.

"Now, I sort of miss that part of the story, actually, because it didn't make the film, and it gave it a little context to see him do that."

Morbius is now available to watch at home.
