Venom is underway over at Fox with Tom Hardy set to play the iconic Anti-Hero, and Black Cat and Silver Sable is in the pipeline to get running at some point. Both films are set to take place in a Spider–Man-Less universe, or maybe Tom Hollond’s Wallcrawler might show, to be honest we have no idea. What we do know is that they are full steam ahead on their Spider-Man characters. Now we have our 3rd character getting his own stand alone. Morbius The Living Vampire.
Not including Blade, I would have to say that Morbius is the most famous Marvel Vampire, so I guess it makes sense to make a film centered on him. Besides those Twilight films did pretty well, right? The news on the film comes from THR, who reports that Power Rangers scribes Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama have written the script already. Which leads us to believe that this is pretty far into development if the script has already been turned in to the studio.
The character of Morbius the Living Vampire becomes a sort of Anti Hero, as Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. Unfortunately the cure did not actually cure him, instead turned him into a vampire, complete with the thirst for blood, and fangs, not to mention super strength. He fought Spidey on a normal basis, as well as having run-ins with our favorite Vampire Hunter, Blade.
