Morbius the Living Vampire Movie in the Works at Sony

From Power Rangers writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.

Sony is developing a new Marvel Comics movie based on the Spider-Man villain and antihero, Morbius the Living Vampire. According to The Hollywood Reporter[2], Power Rangers writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama have recently submitted a script for the movie, simply titled Morbius, to Sony after a secret development process. The character, named Dr.

Michael Morbius[3], was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, and first appeared in 1963’s Amazing Spider-Man #101. Morbius is a scientist suffering from a rare blood disease who, after attempting to cure himself, becomes afflicted with a form of vampirism. The character has fought Spider-Man on several occasions and also became a slightly heroic character.

A Venom movie starring Tom Hardy is currently in production[6] and set to open in theaters on October 5, 2018.

Venom will be followed by a Black Cat/Silver Sable film[7], directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.
