I wasn’t going to post this but I will just so Ryan can’t. Former Comic Book scribe Asim Ahmad got a surge of traffic and attention to his website and twitter feed lately because he announced that he had been cast in the next Spider-Man film as a character named “Dr. Michael Morbius”. I know some of you reading this are asking “What’s the big deal?” As cliche as this may sound at this point but it’s the name of one of Spider-Man’s villains, which just happens to be something of a vampire.
does this mean that Spider-Man will be taking on both a super-charged Jamie Foxx and the undead? Not likely as _ revealed that his character does appear on screen but only appears in 2 pages of the script. The next logical question, I think, would be “What does this mean?” It means Webb is laying the groundwork for the future by establishing characters now, similar to how Sam Raimi had Dr. Curt Conners make cameos in all his films with plans to establish him as a villain. It makes sense, but really isn’t earth shattering news. No, I’m more interested in the Harry Osborn factor.
