Sam Raimi wants Morbius as villain in Spidey 4

It looks like Sam Raimi is hitting up vampire Morbius to appear as the villain in Spiderman 4.

A /Film reader is reporting that Raimi spoke to Empire of his preference to include the fictional biochemist.

“I like it in the Marvel comics when Spider-Man fights Morbius,” Raimi said. “He’s really cool. A vampire! I like that combination of superhero plus supernatural.”

The Lizard still to return ?

Raimi’s enthusiasm towards Morbius would also support rumours that the Lizard will feature in the sequel.

The story of Morbius is closely tied to the fate of Dr. Curt Connors. At one point in the comics, Spiderman and Lizard team up to best the vampire.

No news or rumours on casting yet, though. Question: Who would you like to see play Morbius? Let us know, below.
