Re: Morbius -- set in Sony's Spider-Man universe (D: Espinosa) S: Leto

Matt Smith is in final talks to join Jared Leto in “Morbius,” a film based on the Spider-Man villain of the same name.

“Safe House” director Daniel Espinosa will helm the movie. Exact details of who Smith would play are unknown at this time, other than it being a major role in the film.

Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who co-created the Netflix series “Lost in Space,” penned the script. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing “Morbius” with Lucas Foster. Palak Patel will oversee the pic for Sony.

Tyrese Gibson in Talks to Join Jared Leto in Spider-Man Spinoff 'Morbius'

There will be blood.

Fast and Furious mainstay Tyrese Gibson is in negotiations to join Morbius, the Jared Leto-led comic book movie being made by Sony, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The movie, part of Sony’s extended Spider-Man stable of characters, began production this week in London and counts Matt Smith, Adria Arjona and Jared Harris on the roll call.


Daniel Espinosa is directing the feature which tells of antihero Morbius the Living Vampire. Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results. Instead of being cured, he became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism, hitting him with the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength.

Leto is Morbius while Smith is the villain of the piece, Loxias Crown, Morbius’ best friend who also suffers from the blood disease. Arjona is Morbius’ love interest while Harris is Morbius’ mentor.

Gibson takes on one of the last major roles in the movie, an FBI agent trying to hunt down the living vampire.


Gibson, who will shoot a new Fast & Furious movie this summer, is attached to portray songwriter Teddy Pendergrass in a biopic just set up at Warners last week. He is repped by APA.

This should be called the No Spider-Man Cinematic Universe
or The Venom Cinematic Universe.

Ah I thought it was supposed to be a mock-up of how he actually looks in the movie.

He looks like Bucky if Bucky were a vampire.
