Variety is reporting that The Notebook star has signed on to star as Morbius The Living Vampire with director Daniel Espinoza. If you aren’t familiar with the character, he’s a doctor who accidentally turns himself into a vampire while trying to cure himself of a blood disease.
There’s no word on whether he will ever interact with Spider-Man in the new film or if the property will be part of the new Sony Spider-Manless universe that currently includes Tom Hardy’s Venom, and the continually delayed Silver Sable/ Black Cat movie, Silver and Black.
On top of it all, Leto isn’t done playing The Joker. There’s a chance that he could be appearing in Suicide Squad 2 and his character is in currently in development for his own solo film.
