Spider-Man Morbius Spinoff Movie in the Works at Sony

Also known as Dr. Michael Morbius, the character was a brilliant biochemist suffering from a rare blood disorder, who tried to cure himself with an experimental treatment involving vampire bats. No word yet on if Sony will use the Spidey lore for Morbius or if they will start with a fresh new take on the character.

Amy Pascal, producer on Spider-Man: Homecoming and former head of Sony Pictures, previously hinted that Tom Holland and Spider-Man will eventually return to Sony following the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequels. While the actual character of Peter Parker is now being lent to Marvel Studios, hence why Spider-Man: Homecoming took place in the MCU, Sony still has the rights to all the other Spider-Man characters.

Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, who worked on the recent Power Rangers movie, wrote the script, which was just submitted to the studio after a secret development process.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' DLC Release Dates Confirmed
Wolfenstein 2's season pass is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and costs £17.99 on all platforms in the UK. Today Bethesda confirmed the rest of the release dates for the additional Freedom Chronicles episodes.

With Venom leading the charge, Sony is now beginning to draft up plans for future Spider-Man spinoff movies set within its fledgling Marvel universe. This movie, like Venom, which is now in production, and the forthcoming Silver and Black movie, will not be connected to Tom Holland's Spider-Man and the MCU.

Again, it's not clear at this point if (or how) a Morbius movie would tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or if he'd be a part of the still-developing Sony universe of standalone Spider-Man-related films. Spider-Man sees Morbius as a murderous terror willing to sacrifice morals for a cure. Morbius was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. He's had several run-ins with Spider-Man and has been a heroic figure from time to time. He was introduced in a 1971 issue of "The Amazing Spider-Man", the first Spider-Man comic not written by Stan Lee.

Morbius joins Venom and Silver & Sable, the Black Cat and Silver Sable-centric spin-off, in Sony's cabal of increasingly unusual superhero spin-offs. Now, if we could just talk someone into an Elsa Bloodstone movie. As such, they've decided to make some spin-off movies using these characters that won't include Spider-Man in them.
