Sam Raimi wants Morbius as Spider-Man 4 Villain

by Joey Paur

There has been lots of news of new about 'Watchmen', 'Transformers 2', and 'Iron Man 2' recently but not much has been heard about Spider-Man 4 until now. It seems that Sam Raimi has got an idea of who he wants as his villian in the next Spider-Man movie, and that villain is 'Morbius the living vampire'. Raimi goes on to tell Empire: "I like it in the Marvel comics when Spider-Man fights Morbius," said Raimi. "He's really cool. A vampire! I like that combination of superhero plus supernatural." I couldn't agree with him more, it's a great combination! It also takes him back to his Raimi's horror movie roots. I was excited for The Lizard to make his appearance, but I am more excited to see a story line with Morbius develop. Don't worry, if you you want The Lizard I am sure they will work him into the story somehow, just like they worked Hob Goblin, Sandman, and venom in the last Spider-man movie.

If your not sure who this new villain is: Dr. Michael Morbius has been a Spider-Man mainstay since the early 1970's he was a man who, through scientific experiments with vampire bats, gains the powers of a vampire.

So what do you think? Do you like the idea of this villain taking on Spider-man?
