Will The Amazing Spider-man 2 also feature Morbius?

Dec. 11, 2012by: Alex Maidy

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 has recently made known the fact that Jamie Foxx will portray the villain Electro, but it also appears that they have cast another well-known villain from the annals of Marvel comics.

Actor Asim Ahmad confirmed via his official website that he has been cast in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 as Professor Michael Morbius. While the actor did take to Twitter to clarify his role is confined to two pages of the screenplay, it could be a potential setup for the already in development third film.

Morbius, in Marvel comics, develops vampiric characteristics while trying to cure his own terminal blood disease which led him to become a villain and sometimes ally to Spider-man. Morbius also had run ins with Blade, so that could always be a potential crossover if Sony wanted to build up their superhero squad a little more. The character, despite being a vampire, does have a more "realistic" backstory that would fit in better than The Lizard did.

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will feature the return of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen while adding Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, and Shailene Woodley to the cast. It is slated to open on May 2nd, 2014.

He probably auditioned for the role and thinks he got it. However, as many have said, this guy isn't suited for Morbius. I can see them using him similar in a small fashion of just working for Osbourne.

In a word ..NO

Went through a lot of steps just to make this comment. >> One look at this guy's short list of uncredited parts in films on his imdb page and it's clear that this is another bluff. Plus he doesn't come close to having the look that a major starring role demands.

I call bullshit on this. I do think there may be roles to be added to this film but none of another major character except for Norman Osborn.

Conz, this is the same guy!!

I don't trust him. He has always made extravagant claims on twitter and his IMDB profile. claims he was up for the lead villains in Dark Knight, Avengers, Hulk, AND that he was the head writer of the Uncanny X-men and Ultimate Spider-man throughout the late 2000s.

If there is any truth to this at all, I am guessing that Morbius might be more like Mr. Zsasz in Batman Begins than a set-up for a third movie.

Or just like Van Atter in Amazing Spider-Man where he probably will never be Proto-Goblin, he is just filling a role instead of inventing a random scientist.

I bet this is nothing more than an extended cameo, like Dylan Baker as Dr. Connors in the Raimi films. I don't even think he'd be a villain in the third film since they seem to be setting up Green Goblin again.

So wait...

you really think they're looking to get "Asim Ahmad" to play the main antagonist in the 3rd movie of a blockbuster trilogy?

Didn't somethng like this happen recently in another movie? Some arabic actor announced he got a big role in a movie like this and it turned out to be bs.

This is the same guy you speak of. He claims he was up for the lead villains in Dark Knight, Avengers, Hulk and Terminator 5.
