    Plot Summary: Created in 1971 by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane in the first issue of Amazing Spider-Man not written by Stan Lee (#101), Dr. Michael Morbius was a scientist whose attempts to cure himself of a rare blood disease left him with all the traits of a vampire (super strength, bloodlust, fangs, hypnosis, etc). The character rode the ’70s horror boom and went on to be featured in Marvel titles such as 'Vampire Tales,' 'Adventure Into Fear' and eventually his own book titled "Morbius the Living Vampire" in 1992. The character fought Spider-Man several times, he also has an ongoing feud with Blade the Vampire Hunter in the comics.

    If done right this film this Movie could be this generation's of the Fly. I'm actually wanting to see this so hard because I think Leto fits what they might want to do with the character.

    Here's the trailer. Not a fan of Leto, this is probably a hard pass for me.

    Hard pass here as well, though I’d love to hear HoHo somehow explain to me why he thought this would be like The Fly.

    He should be brought back just to this section to give his valuable opinions.

    Eh. I can see how the premise of Morbius The Living Vampire could be done as a contemporary version of The Fly, but obvious no one should have expected Sony to take a risk with this project and it was never gonna be anything more than your average comic book origin story. Still, would've been cool if Sony decided to take a risk on this extremely unexciting project or if Jared Leto had been so incensed by the Joker Joaquin Phoenix take that his ego didn't let him churn out a generic blockbuster.

    I like comic book movies but there's no risk or attempt to do anything interesting in most of them when theres a shitton of potential there. I think (or this may just be wishful thinking) it's overdue for these studios to step out of their comfort zone or those movies are going to stop selling.
