Jared Leto will be Morbius the Living Vampire


While DC and Warner Bros. keep telling us about different Joker films, it seems that Jared Leto is having a crack at a Marvel antihero in the shape of Morbius the Living Vampire.

This character falls under the Spider-Man movie-verse so Sony is working on it.

Morbius’ true identity is that of a former award-winning biochemist named: Michael Morbius, who is imbued with vampiric superhuman abilities and physical traits stemming from a failed biochemical experiment, which was intended to cure his rare blood disorder, as opposed to supernatural means, with the rest of his appearances featuring his struggles with his inhuman-like vampiric persona, his insatiable lust for human blood, and his subsequent efforts to cure his horrific condition, along with his eventual stint as a brutal and nightmarish vigilante.

I feel Leto is a pretty good choice for the role of the tortured character, plus I am sure he will look the part.

Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and originally designed by penciler Gil Kane, the character first appeared as an antagonist in The Amazing Spider-Man #101. He has been both a hero and a villain over the years.

Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama ( they wrote Dracula Untold, Gods of Egypt, The Last Witch Hunter and the recent Power Rangers movie), wrote the script so make of that what you will. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life) will direct the film.

Venom starring Tom Hardy is the next Sony film set in this particular corner of superhero land, although it remains to be seen if Spider-Man will show up in it.  Sony also recently announced a Silk movie, as well as Silver and Black and Nightwatch.

Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the Morbius movie with Lucas Foster, with Sony executive Palak Patel overseeing for the studio.

How do you feel about Jared Leto playing Morbius?
