On Aril 1, 2022, Sony's Morbius opened in theaters (after many delays) to a reception that studio execs were perhaps not exactly expecting. With a Rotten Tomatoes score hovering under 20% (though the audience score was well above 60%), word of mouth on the long-awaited Marvel vamp pic was a bit biting.
Over Morbius's opening weekend, Marvel fans, cinefiles, and general miscreants with a love of chaos took to social media to troll the Sony pic for all it was worth, using the hashtag #MorbiusSweep to spread their clamor. Using fake Rotten Tomatoes scores, faux reviews, and exaggerated box office numbers, these pranksters took every opportunity available to create bedlam - and comedy.
