Sony Prepping Morbius Movie



Ah, Morbius, the Living Vampire! Such an underutilized member of the Marvel family. Thankfully, this much beloved cult favorite may finally be getting his due, though in a perfect world he’d get a crossover with Blade, but that’s very much wishful thinking, no?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a film based upon Morbius, who made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #101, is currently in development.

Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold, The Gods of Egypt, The Last Witch Hunter, Power Rangers) wrote the script, which was just submitted to the studio after a secret development process.

Character Description via Wikipedia:
Morbius, the Living Vampire, a scientist named Dr. Michael Morbius PhD, MD, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Roy Thomas and originally designed by penciler Gil Kane, the character first appeared as an antagonist in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 (Oct. 1971). Morbius went on to become a heroic, tragically flawed protagonist in his own series and other titles. Morbius is a man suffering from vampiric abilities and physical traits resulting from a biochemical experiment, as opposed to supernatural means.
