Tyrese Gibson could possibly be joining the Marvel universe very soon—the actor is in talks to star in Spider-Man spin-off Morbius, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).

THR reports Gibson is close to landing one of the last major roles in the film, an FBI agent on the hunt for antihero Morbius the Living Vampire, played by Jared Leto.

“Morbius is Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and attempted to cure himself to disastrous results,” explains the publication. “Instead of being cured, he became afflicted with a condition that was a form of vampirism, hitting him with the thirst for blood, along with fangs and super strength.”

Gibson recently locked down the lead role in the upcoming Teddy Pendergrass biopic to be directed by Lee Daniels.

“I am honored to take this journey … this is the role that I feel I was born to play. Teddy Pendergrass embraced me and before he passed put the responsibility on my shoulders to tell his story,” Gibson said. “Being here in this time and in this space and moment with Lee Daniels, Donald De Line, Little Marvin and Warner Bros is an answered prayer. Teddy, I just hope we make you, your wife and family proud … Here we go!!”
