We're Getting A Spider-Man Spinoff Movie All About Morbius

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

Morbius the Living Vampire Movie in Development at Sony

Yet, it still depends on how Venom turns out, since, like the Morbius project, it will serve as the cold introduction to an iconic Spider-Man-connected character, sans the presence of Spider-Man, acquainting audiences with the identifiable elements of a dubious, sometimes-malevolent protagonist. Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane created Morbius in 1971 as a tragic Spider-Man villain, but he has gone on to headline his own comic book series that cast him in a more heroic light.

At this point, no details have been revealed regarding Sony's prospective approach to Morbius. He instead gains a thirst for blood, fangs, and super strength, essentially becoming a "living vampire" as his epithet suggests. For those unfamiliar, Morbius (despite his appearance and his "vampire" status) is actually one of the good guys. He is able to stand in sunlight, but his powers are diminished when doing so. Though Morbius battled Spider-Man for a time, he eventually became more of an anti-hero. Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, who worked on the recent Power Rangers movie (which, to be fair, was far better than anyone was expecting) wrote the script, and just submitted it to the studio after a secret development process.

What route, exactly, Sony is going to go with the character is not yet known as they've declined to comment on the news. He originally appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man but has since gained his own solo titles as well as stories like the (excellent) 2010 Legion of Monsters minseries. He started out as a villain but became more of an anti-hero later on.

Trump urges lawmakers to end health mandate, cut top tax rate
Trump praised new bills in the House and Senate, called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), but suggested a few improvements. Lawmakers aim to balance raising revenue to pay for major tax cuts without losing GOP votes and endangering the bill.


After Sony and Marvel made history by deciding to share Spider-Man with the MCU, Sony has chose to move forward with Spider-Man spinoffs that are set outside of the cinematic universe.

Morbius joins Venom and Silver & Sable, the Black Cat and Silver Sable-centric spin-off, in Sony's cabal of increasingly odd superhero spin-offs. For now, it's anybody's guess.
