MORBIUS: THE LIVING VAMPIRE's Lead Villain Has Been Revealed

Venom exceeded expectations at the box office so Sony Pictures is moving full steam ahead with Morbius: The Living Vampire. Now, a new report sheds some light on who the movie's lead villain will be...

While a Venom sequel announcement is no doubt imminent, next up for Sony Pictures is Morbius: The Living Vampire. Jared Leto has landed the lead role in the movie and while we know that Martine Bancroft will be the love interest, the villain has now also been revealed.

According to That Hashtag Show, we'll see Michael Morbius squaring off with a new creation named Loxias Crown.

That's right, the villain won't be someone from the comic books but it does at least sound like he's loosely based on a character from the source material. In the comics, Emil Nikos turns on his old friend but the movie will reportedly feature a very different iteration of him and it seems his personality may have been given to "Crown." It is also possible that he may be based on the mutant supervillain, Crown.

For those of you who haven't heard of him, he was a mutant who later became known as Hunger and he's clashed with both Spider-Man and Morbius. He will, however, have a different origin story because the site reveals that this take on Crown will suffer from the same blood disease as Morbius, but the serum Michael develops will turn his old friend into someone unable to control his bloodlust.

Does this sound like the right direction to take Morbius: The Living Vampire in? Weigh in down below.
