Sony Orders New Spider-Man Spinoff Based On Morbius The Living Vampire

Morbius The Living Vampire #1    
   Marvel

When you've already booted and rebooted and re-rebooted established franchises like Superman and Batman and Spider-Man, where do you go next? Er, plasma-y terrifying? Plasma-riffic?

After Sony and Marvel made history by deciding to share Spider-Man with the MCU, Sony has chose to move forward with Spider-Man spinoffs that are set outside of the cinematic universe.

Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. Indeed, the tragic aspects of Morbius's origin story quickly led to him being spotlighted in solo stories in Marvel's Adventure into Fear, later occasionally popping back up in the Spider-Man titles as a rival. As of yet, there's no director or star on board the Morbius movie, but we know it won't be connected to Tom Holland's iteration of Spider-Man. When asked if this story will have any connections to Tom Holland's Spider-Man, Sony refused to comment. The upside is that, while not fully a vampire, he gained abilities like superhuman strength and speed, as well as heightened senses.

Socceroos back in Australia, get 1st advantage over Honduras
Tim Cahill has declared himself fit to play in Australia's World Cup qualifying play-off second leg against Honduras. A place at next year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation is at stake for the victor of the tie.

Just when you thought that Sony's Spider-Man cinematic universe featuring everyone except for Spider-Man couldn't get any weirder, 2017 hits again. His physical appearance was transformed to become more bat-like, making him one of the more striking monsters in the Marvel universe.

Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #101, the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee. There's still a great many questions about how that's going to work, but a project like Morbius certainly doesn't need Spider-Man to function. As such, they've chose to make some spin-off movies using these characters that won't include Spider-Man in them.

In the early days of comic book movies, Marvel's Blade was brought to the big screen and found modest success. The Hollywood Reporter makes no mention of a potential release date, but the project sounds like it's in the relatively early stages.
