Of all of the supporting characters in Spider-Man tales, Morbius, The Residing Vampire is actually certainly one of them. He’s not as iconic or memorable as Venom, he’s not a core forged member like Mary Jane and even J. Jonah Jameson, and he’s not even a daily visitor star like Silver Sable or Black Cat. These characters are already getting their very own motion pictures or have already appeared in Spider-Man motion pictures, although, so now Sony has apparently figured that it’d as effectively give Morbius a film as effectively. In response to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has enlisted Energy Rangers writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama to develop a script, although any particulars past which are nonetheless unknown.
Within the comics, Dr. Michael Morbius was a person affected by a blood illness, and when he tried to invent a remedy it really gave him a vampire-like thirst for blood, sharp fangs, and tremendous power. After all, actual vampires are undead and Morbius was only a man who appreciated blood, in order that’s the place the “Residing Vampire” branding got here from. Morbius was initially a villain, as a result of he’s a Residing Vampire, however he ultimately grew to become extra of an antihero-type. He was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane, and as THR notes, his first look was in Spider-Man subject 101, the primary subject not written by Stan Lee.
Morbius can be a part of Sony’s Spider-Man-adjacent Cinematic Universe alongside Venom and Silver And Black, and like these motion pictures, it’s nonetheless unclear if Spider-Man himself will even have something to do with it.
