The summer of disease ain’t over until it’s over. With disappointing box office earnings and a sweet 17% Rotten Tomatoes rating, Jared Leto’s vampiric Marvel spinoff is a certified flop. Its main cultural impact is a slew of self-referential memes about how much it sucks — and a month after disease‘ Release date, another intervenes: ‘It’s Morbin’ Time.’
Continuing the ongoing joke of just making stuff up disease since no one has seen the film anyway, “It’s Morbin’ Time” is an imaginary slogan currently going viral on Twitter. The sentence was created with a couple of viral tweets in early April, but it only started to spread in the past week.
In the wake of the unrelated Marvel film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnesspeople started to invent fakes disease Crossover scenes satirizing Marvel’s obsession with multiverse cameos. (disease‘ own post-credits scenes are notoriously awful and contain some nonsense Spiderman Crossover that was allegedly edited to remove direct references to Spider-Man.)
Doctor Strange jokes aside, It’s Morbin’ Time is fast invading the extreme online lexicon as a standalone keyword— and now it’s spreading to TikTok. Please give a warm welcome to this “POV: My gf when I text her ‘it’s Morbin time'” TikTok which has racked up nearly 150,000 views.
There are now a handful of people out there who are innocent wonder if “It’s Morbin’ time” is called a real line of dialogue in the film. In view of disease‘ Reputation, that’s not a totally ridiculous assumption.
