As we all know, Marvel has a reboot of Blade in the works with Mahershala Ali taking over the role made iconic on the big screen by Wesley Snipes. And Sony has an adaptation of Morbius The Living Vampire AKA Morbius in the can starring Jared Leto.
And today we’re hearing from We Got This Covered that Marvel has eyes on Morbius showing up in their franchises down the line and apparently, they’re considering using him in Blade.
Make note that this is just a rumor at this time.
While it’s hard to say if we’ll want more of Leto’s Michael Morbius on the big screen before we’ve even seen so much as a teaser trailer for the upcoming film, I think it’s safe to say seeing Blade beat the ass off Morbius is something we need in our lives.
Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) from a screenplay written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless based on Morbius, the Living Vampire by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane.
Avi Arad produces along with Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster, and it stars Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream), Adria Arjona (Good Omens), Matt Smith (Terminator: Genisys), Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes), and Tyrese Gibson (8 Fast 8 Furious).
Sony Pictures Releasing will unleash Daniel Espinosa’s Morbius starring Jared Leto into theaters near you on July 31, 2020.
