Morbius the Living Vampire in production at Sony

Nov 13, '17, 6:27pm

In what clearly seems like the worst comic book movie idea of all time:

'Spider-Man' Spinoff: Morbius the Living Vampire Movie in the Works With 'Power Rangers' Writers

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-v ... rs-1056702


I have three questions:

1. Who greenlights a spinoff around Morbius, the weird vampire of the Marvel Universe? Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

2. Who hires the Power Rangers writers to try and make such a silly side character into a hit movie? Their Movie Just Flopped.

3. Clearly they are not introducing him in a Spider Man movie, so how is he a Spin Off?

This whole Spider-Man universe sans Spider-Man is the dumbest fucking thing and reeks of desperation.

I will be shocked if the Venom movie isn't a huge flop, and this Morbius movie is even dumber than that idea.

I mean, Sony did want to make that Aunt May spy thriller, so I wouldn't go that far...

But yeah, this is really stupid. Morbius isn't a particularly compelling villain. Hell, he isn't even a real vampire for crying out loud! Is he going to be the hero in his movie? So dumb. Venom can be alright if done correctly and Silver & Black might be a fun spy/heist movie, but I have very little faith in the studio that brought us the mess that was Amazing Spider-Man 2.

This would have made sense about 8 years ago when Twilight was the "in thing" -- no?

If they're planning on doing Marvel vampires at least try to bring back Blade... I guess if Sony is going to ruin a character with a spinoff movie, it might as well be Morbius.

Yeah, I don't really know what they plan on doing. Morbius has helped out heroes in the past, but as far as I know he literally cannot live without feeding on human blood, other than the brief period when he was cured of his condition (which kind of defeats the purpose of the character if they go that route). My guess is that they'll completely warp and re-write the character into some kind of anti-hero that needs to kill. Ugh...

At least Venom has a bit of a fanbase and you could eke out some kind of solo movie from it. Who the hell is asking for Morbius? If I'm gonna get a vampire movie from Marvel, it better be Blade.
