Sony is happy with the new Marvel-connected Spider-Man series and is taking advantage with spinoff after spinoff, now including Morbius, the living vampire.
The news comes courtesy of Hollywood Reporter, which, uh, reports that Sony is pursuing a spinoff of Spider-Man’s sometimes-villain and antihero. Morbius was a human with a rare blood disease who, in a world of lizard men and radioactive spiders, decided to try and cure himself and of course became a vampire.
Some fans might remember Morbius from FOX’s Spider-Man cartoon, where the more kid-friendly nature of the cartoon forced writers to change Morbius’ blood-sucking from his fangs to far scarier living suckers on the palms of his hands.
Sony has confirmed it is producing a Venom spinoff that takes place in the same world as Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, with rumors abound that Black Cat and Silver Sable movies in the same vein also in development.
