    I love Morbius, but I can't imagine this will be interesting.

    If the Venom movie is successful, then maybe this will fly. Otherwise - nope.

    I shouldn't laugh but it's so hilarious how desperate Sony is getting now that Marvel has creative control over Spider-Man himself.
    By this point I can honestly see them trying to make a Scarlet Spider film without Peter, and clearly it goes without saying how ridiculous that would be.

    Morbius isn't the worst character for a movie...

    OK, but in all seriousness, this sounds like a really bad idea. Morbius is a great character, but he's also extremely difficult to actually use and use well. I guess maybe Sony is interesting in luring Marvel into letting them use Blade, sure, but really, even that sounds like an idea doomed to failure.

    Not interested.

    we'll see what happens. It has to be PG-13 right, so it won't be all the way horror.
    Plus, will they establish Morbius as an anti-hero, or a villain? who will he be attacking?
    I'm sure they'll stress the romance angle.
    I'd suggest Christian Bale, but he's already played a "bat man"-- heh.

    I always thought either Steve Buscemi or Kevin Bacon would make a great Morbius plus they are good actors in their own right.

    Christian Bale would be good! I'm sure they won't get him, but he'd be good. The problem with Morbius is that he's so, well, grey that his villain really has to be really horrible to make him look heroic.

    Or they can do what they did last series and turn it all into a weird real estate scheme.

    I don't think Morbius is a bad idea for a movie. it's just that it can't be a straight forward lighthearted superhero movie. It need to be something darker.

    Morbius does work well in lighter moments and the character has always been a little deadpan. I actually think he'd be cool played not too dark.

    Perhaps something around the level of Tim Burton's Batman or Sam Raimi's Dark man then. Still dark and serious, but with a nice touch of fun and sillyness on top.

    You have to make him silly. His concept falls apart if you don't sort of revel in the silly tragedy of his situation.
