Although Sony Pictures' Venom already in production, with filming starting in late October, it's never too late to add a new cast member. A new report surfaced today which revealed that Woody Harrelson is in talks to sign on, reportedly to play "a henchman of sorts," although there is no indication that this character has roots in the Marvel Comics, and it remains unclear when we'll find out more about this character.

Wolverine Wednesday #7

Before I get into my reviews I want to talk about the recent news regarding Wolverines return from the dead. After his appearance on Legacy #1 it has been confirmed that the original 616 continuity Wolverine will be back with us very soon. The road to his return starts in January 2018. He will appear in a series of ‘post credit scenes’ in key titles Captain America #697, Mighty Thor #703 and Amazing Spider-Man #794. Now I am a Wolverine completest but I can say right now I will not be buying these three issues or any other issues with Wolverine ‘post credit scenes’. Call me old fashioned but one of the premier X-Men should return in an X book or one of the two Wolverine titles. Of course after these ‘post credit’ appearances that could still happen and I hope we get a larger story involving his return in the two Wolverine titles or mini.

A long time ago, a grade-schooler got his hands on a spaceship. He followed the assembly instructions as best he could, snapping on the cannons, the landing gear, the tiny interstellar-chess table. Soon enough, Rian Johnson was holding his very own Millennium Falcon. "The first thing I did," he recalls, "was throw it across the room, to see how it would look flying." He grins. "And it broke."

Johnson grew up, went to film school, made some good stuff, including the entertainingly twisted 2012 sci-fi drama Looper. He's nearly 44 now, though

Dracula Untold Writers Developing Spider-Man Spinoff Film About Morbius the Living Vampire

  • DailyDead
Out of all of the superheroes in the Marvel universe, Spider-Man's lineup of villains is perhaps the most eclectic, intriguing, and horrifying. There has always been an added undercurrent of dread to the foes the web slinger squares off against, and Morbius the Living Vampire is certainly no exception. With Sony currently filming a Venom spinoff film, the studio is wasting no time developing other characters in Spider-Man's cinematic universe, as they are reportedly developing a feature film spinoff focused on Morbius.

Sony Orders New Spider-Man Spinoff Based On Morbius The Living Vampire

With Venom leading the charge, Sony is now beginning to draft up plans for future Spider-Man spinoff movies set within its fledgling Marvel universe.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, today brings word that the studio has ordered a feature film based on Morbius, the Living Vampire. Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, the writers best known for Lionsgate’s recent Power Rangers reboot, have just submitted a screenplay to Sony, so this anti-hero flick is still very much in the formative stages of development.

However that may be, Morbius (real name: Dr. Michael Morbius) has been linked with a big-screen adaptation for years, so this announcement has been long on the cards. First hatched by Roy Thomas and Marvel artist Gil Kane, the undead anti-hero made his debut in Amazing Spider-Man #101, and has since become something of a cult favorite.

As THR notes, Morbius is introduced as a scientist “who suffered from
