morbius

Sony has announced that its next Spider-Man spin-off is set to be based on Morbius The Living Vampire. The screenplay for the movie was penned by the team of Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, two of the writers of Power Rangers, The Last Witch Hunter, and Dracula Untold. In the comics, Michael Morbius is a brilliant doctor with a rare blood disease, and after attempting to cure it, inadvertently receives superpowers, and a thirst for blood.

Currently, there is no director attached, but with the studio giving the film the green light, we can expect to hear something very soon.

Spider-Man Story Trailer

Sony has unveiled a new trailer, finally giving us a hint as to what we can expect from the story for Insomniac’s long-awaited Spider-Man game for the PlayStation 4. In the game, Spider-Man has successfully put away The Kingpin, and is now thinking about hanging up the costume, but the appearance of Mr. Negative throws a kink in his plans.

The gameplay looks fast and frenetic, and absolutely like a wonderful Spider-Man game, full of color and brightness. Spider-Man hits in 2018.

Venom to Come to Life Through Motion Capture

Motion capture pioneer, Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes, Lord of the Rings) has spilled the beans that Tom Hardy will be bringing Venom to life through the use of motion capture technology, marking a coup for the technology’s usage.

“The time has come that people understand that performance capture is a technology, not a genre of acting,” Serkis said. “Acting is acting, and the more actors – like Steve Zahn… and Karin Konoval who plays Maurice in ‘War For The Planet of the Apes’ – the more A-list actors that come on board, like Mark Rylance playing ‘The BFG,’ or a lot of actors in the new Marvel films… Tom Hardy is playing a new character using performance capture. It all points up ‘what is the nature of acting?’ and there is no difference between acting wearing a costume and make up, or wearing a motion capture suit. That’s plain and simple, it just needs awarding bodies to understand that.”
