There are rumors that Morbius, a scientist who turned himself into a vampire like supervillian will be making a small showing in the “The Amazing Spiderman 2″ sequel slated to be released in May 2012.
The part is rumored to be given to Asim Ahmad, the stunt person for “Dark Knight Rises”, “Fright Night”, and “Alien versus Predator” and uncredited roles in “Dark Knight” and “Fright Night”
Morbius is a character that was created by Marvel Comics in 1971 in the “The amazing Spiderman” comics and went on to have his own comic. Throughout the comics, he had been an enemy of Blade and even joined S.H.I.E.L.D. to help catch Blade. This would be an interesting mix with Spiderman, Morbius, and The Avengers all in one movie.
But, this was just a twitter conversation between Asim Ahmad, Stephanie Levina, a friend, and Marvel. There was no confirmation but no denying either. You can read the Twitter conversation here.
Jamie Foxx has been confirmed to play Electro and Emma Stone will return as Gwen. Shailene Woodley will be introduced as Mary Jane and Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne.
