'Spider-Man' Spinoff: Morbius the Living Vampire Movie in the Works With 'Power Rangers' Writers



Sony’s cinematic universe based on Spider-Man characters just got a little bigger.

The studio is developing Morbius, a feature project centered on Spider-Man antihero Morbius the Living Vampire.

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.

Details of Sony’s take on the character are not known.


Creative team doesn't infuse me with excitement, but I've always been a Morbius fan, so fingers crossed!

There was always talk of putting him in the Blade films. Now that Marvel has Blade back, maybe the roles are reversed? Could be fun. Marvel also have most of the Maximum Carnage characters in play on big and small screens. You never know!

Morbius - Teaser Trailer [YouTube]

Looking a little dry, but explains the basics well. Kinda cool that they seem to have gone all-in on the Morbius look. Very surprising to see Michael Keaton at the end! Finding out where that goes is probably the biggest hook.
