@cosmicbooknews @asimaahmad He's playing #Morbius in #TAS2 Also will be #Alucard in our #Hellsing movies. :-)

Asim Ahmad confirms on Twitter as well as he informs Marvel Comics writer Joe Keatinge, writer on the new Morbius the Living Vampire ongoing comic book:

@silent_paranoia @marvelousescape@marvel @joekeatinge Morbius is only mentioned in two pages, not a big part.

Asim Ahmad has previously interned and written for Marvel Comics as well as having non-credited roles in The Dark Knight and Fright Night.

The news of the inclusion of Morbius in the Amazing Spider-Man 2 shouldn't come to that much of a surprise to readers of Cosmic Book News as we've been telling you he most likely would be featured in the movie due to Marvel Comics announcing a new Morbius The Living Vampire ongoing series. 

The "Amazing Spider-Man 2" swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Shailene Woodley, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan.
