Morbius the Living Vampire, also known as Dr. Michael Morbius, is a doctor who was afflicted by a rare blood disease that was only made worse by his disastrous attempts to cure himself. The Hollywood Reporter says that movie, now titled Morbius, will focus on the vampire-like character for one of the spin-off movies based on the Spider-Man franchise. The duo previously worked on the Universal film Drcula Untold. However, these new movies will not be connected to Sony's Tom Holland movies and not connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is being produced by Marvel Studios.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a script has just been passed to the studio by Power Rangers writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama.

Whether Spider-Man is legally capable to show up in these films is a bit murky, as Sony and Marvel seem to change their statements every other week regarding the matter. Basically, he's the Yuri Boyka of the Spider-Man 'verse, only instead of kicking ass, he bites necks and wears tights. The character, who was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, would over time develop into more of an antihero than a villain. 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. He started out as a villain but became more of an anti-hero later on.

This isn't the first spin-off Spider-Man movie that Sony has announced. He was introduced in a 1971 issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man", the first Spider-Man comic not written by Stan Lee.

We'll have to wait to see where this Morbius movie goes, as there is no release date yet announced. Tentatively titled Morbius, the purported film is said to be part of Sony's cinematic Spider-Verse which would include Venom and Silver & Black. 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.
