Happy Monday heroes, we have some movie news that I didn’t see coming. We’ve learned that Sony is developing a “Morbius: The Living Vampire” film that will be apart of their “Spider-Man Universe”. Right now we have no clue as to whether or not it will tie into the MCU. Similar to the Venom film starring Tom Hardy. Let me quote the Hollywood Reporter article which has some more details.
“Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, who worked on the recent Power Rangers movie, wrote the script, which was just submitted to the studio after a secret development process.
Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #101, the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee.
Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. He instead became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism — the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength — and fought Spider-Man. Over time, however, he became a slightly heroic figure in his own right.”
As always let us know what you think down below. I feel as though Sony could do something like a Spider-Gwen, Silk, or even Spider-Woman(Jessica Drew) given those characters current popularity. Until the next news post, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
