Fans have been swamped with comic responsibilities lately with Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 playin in theaters. Marvel is dominating the box office, especially with Infinity War smashing record after record. The Disney/Marvel collaboration has led to a perfectly blended universe, one that would be incomplete without Sony. Due to Sony’s participation, Marvel has been able to include Spider-Man into its cinematic universe.
Sony lending the rights to such an iconic character gives off the impression that they may have lost their best opportunity for films. No need to fret, Sony seems to be well-prepared with their films Venom, and Spider-Man: Enter the Spider-Verse. Both of which have had wonderful reactions with the trailers alone. It doesn’t stop their however. Not only is the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming kicking into gear this summer, their has now been new information regarding Morbius.
Morbius is now in pre-production with Matt Tolmach, and Avi Arad as producers. The duo have found their screenwriters in Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, both who have just finished their time on Netflix’s Lost in Space. Now there is still no word on a new director but they are looking for a male between the ages of 30-37 to play a lead in the film. ThatHashtagShow was also able to snag a log-line being used for the film, check it out below:
Horror action story of a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transformed himself into a living vampire who, though disgusted by his own bloodlust, chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.
The comics portray Morbius as a living vampire after Dr. Michael Morbius experimented on himself. While gaining many powers, he also suffered horrible disfigurement. He also garnered a craving for human blood that had deemed itself irresistible, inherently making him a villain. His only cure is that of the blood of Spider-Man’s.
For now we will have to wait on anymore major news regarding Morbius but it already seems like it will be quite the journey. At least we have Venom and Spider-Man: Enter the Spider-Verse to hold us off. What are your thoughts on Morbius and the log-line they’ve released? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
