Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal reveals that Morbius could face Blade in the MCU.
On June 31, I leaked that Sony wanted a crossover between the two.
Thus, Pascal confirms that scoop.
In a Geeks of Color interview, Pascal teased it.
Blade and Morbius, that’s a cool idea. You know the future, you never know what’s going to happen. There’s all sorts of possibilities.
For Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, it’s beyond the box-office potential.
Specifically, both actors are Oscar winners.
Jared Leto (Morbius) and Mahershala Ali (Blade) have Academy Awards.
In fact, Ali owns two of them.
It’d be rare for a horror movie to have that kind of A-list talent.
Moreover, the vampire hunter Blade chasing down the vampire Blade makes sense.
Undoubtedly, such a fight would sell tickets.

Beyond that, Morbius could join the Midnight Sons with Blade and Ghost Rider.
Morbius’ presence adds firepower to the supernatural team.
Not only that, it heightens the tension.
After all, Blade could attempt to kill Morbius while working together.
The distrust fuels suspense and anxiety.
Given that Pascal didn’t dismiss the idea is exciting.
First of all, who wouldn’t want to see Morbius and Blade clash?
Secondly, it provides evidence that Sony and Disney will continue collaborating.
Furthermore, their team-ups extend beyond Spider-Man.
Disney and Sony are well aware of how fans love seeing them get along.
After all, Spider-Man: No Way Home grossed $638 million globally on opening weekend.
The numbers say it all.
Writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane co-created Morbius for The Amazing Spider-Man No. 101.
At the time, the Comics Code Authority just removed the ban on vampires in mainstream comic books.
Therefore, Morbius was a more revolutionary character than people realize.
He is among Marvel Comics’ iconic horror properties.
Morbius even predated Blade by nearly two years.
Nevertheless, in the grim and gritty ’90s, both Morbius and Blade found new life.
They appeared in more comics than in previous years.
Granted, the 1998 Blade film shot him into public recognition.
The Wesley Snipes hit was Marvel’s first theatrical smash.
Blade opened the doors for the MCU.
Now Blade opens the door for Morbius to enter.
