Multiple outlets are reporting that Jared Leto has been cast in the title role for ‘Morbius,’ the next film in Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff universe, which will focus on anti-hero Morbius the Living Vampire.

Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, Morbius is the alter-ego of Dr. Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist whose attempts to cure himself of a deadly blood disease using serum derived from bats, resulted in turning himself into a vampiric creature.

Moribus first appeared as an antagonist in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ #101, but has since gone on to become a heroic, tragically flawed protagonist in his own series and other titles.

Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa (‘Snabba Cash,’ ‘Safe House,’ ‘Life’) is attached to direct the project from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, the writers behind the Netflix revival of ‘Lost in Space.’
