    First Teaser Trailer for Jared Leto's MORBIUS Reveals Surprise MCU Character Appearance

    One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

    Spider-Man Spinoff: MORBIUS the Living Vampire Movie in the Works

    [​IMG]

    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. Sony has been furiously developing its stable of Marvel-licensed characters that are mostly based off the heroes and villains that are connected to Spider-Man. However, these new movies will not be connected to Sony’s Tom Holland movies and not connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is being produced by Marvel Studios.

    Sharpless and Sazama previously tackled vampirism with Dracula Untold, Universal’s origin of the most famous vampire that starred Luke Evans. They also count The Last Witch Hunter and Gods of Egypt among their credits. The duo also are showrunning and writing the Lost in Space reboot for Netflix that is to debut next year.

    Who owns the rights to Blade? Disney?

    Iirc Blade and Morbius had some interesting interactions over the years in the comics.

    am i remembering this correctly? in the animated series, peter parker sprouts four extra arms and turns into a huge spider...how did he get rid of them again? i kind of remember morbius turning into a huge bat with like 8 arms and flying off but i think i might be confusing two things..help?

    @Dragonlordxxxxx

    How did the money get dispersed between Sony and Marvel for Homecoming ? Also was Disney paid to allow this to Happen ? I'm going to give Venom a chance since they cast Hardy but the rest of the "Spiderverse" seems like a gamble.

    I can’t even keep track of which Spider-Man is current because they’ve rebooted it like 5 times.

    I was intrigued until I saw Gods of Egypt and The last Witchunter in their writing credits. I have little faith in this, but I did have some great Morbius comics back in the day.

    With Power Rangers and Dracula Untold as the backgrounds for those involved, I don't have much faith this will be good...

    Remember in the heavily censored 90s cartoon where he couldn't bite people so he sucked people's blood out through his palm sucker things

    That was actually kind of cool

    Marvel gets creative control.

    Sony gets the profits once costs are covered.

    Sony is responsible for Marketing.

    If they do it right, this could be Blade for a new generation.

    But who am I kidding? This is Sony we're talking about:rolleyes:

    We need to see that Venom movie first and we can get hyped for future projects.

    Shame, I was working on a Netflix Blade treatment where Blade follows a pack of vampires to New Orleans and teams up with Brother VooDoo to take down Morbius.
