Morbius: Adria Arjona In Talks For Female Lead In Spider-Man Spinoff Film


Deadline is reporting that Adria Arjona is in negotiations with Sony Pictures to play the female lead opposite Jared Leto the Spider-Man spinoff Morbius.

 

Morbius focuses on Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist who tries to cure himself from a fatal blood disease, he injects himself with a treatment serum derived from bats, with tragic results. He becomes afflicted with traits of a vampire, including fangs and a thirst for human blood, which more often than not put him at odds against Spider-Man.

 

The Morbius character was created for the comics back in 1971 by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane for “The Amazing Spider-Man issue 101”, and would start off as Spider-Man’s nemesis before evolving into his own as a comic hero as the decades went on.

 

Adria Arjona (whose credits include Pacific Rim: Uprising and Life of the Party) could be playing the role of Martine Bancroft. In the comics, Martine, who is engaged to Morbius, becomes a potential victim to his bloodlust as he grapples with the transformation that has made him a weird laboratory version of the supernatural vampires of lore.

 

The Morbius spinoff script is written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, with Daniel Espinosa directing and Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster serving as producers on the project.
