Adria Arjona In Talks to Star in Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man Universe Film “Morbius”

Adria Arjona could be heading to the Spider-verse

The 26-year-old Guatemalan and Puerto Rican actress is in talks to portray Martine, the female lead in Sony Pictures’ feature film Morbius, which stars Jared Leto.

Adria Arjona

Daniel Espinosa is directing the Spider-Man Universe spinoff based on Marvel Comics’ antihero Morbius the Living Vampire.

Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, the renowned biochemist Dr. Michael Morbius first debuted in the 1970s The Amazing Spider-Man#101 issue. He attempts to cure a fatal blood disease by injecting himself with a treatment serum derived from bats, which transforms him into the anti-hero Morbius. He has all the qualities of a vampire, including a taste for human blood.

In the comics, Martine, who is engaged to Morbius, becomes a potential victim to his bloodlust as he grapples with the transformation that has made him a weird laboratory version of the supernatural vampires of lore.

Sony has declined to comment on Arjona’s possible casting.

Arjona, who made television history as the first Latina and bilingual Dorothy in NBC’s short-lived series Emerald City, was most recently seen on the big screen in Universal’s Pacific Rim Uprising and the Melissa McCarthy-starrer Life of the Party.

Her upcoming projects include Netflix’s Michael Bay movie Six Underground opposite Ryan Reynolds and Corey Hawkins and Triple Frontier with Ben Affleck, as well as Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens series at Amazon.

Isaac leads an all-star cast that includes Ben AffleckCharlie HunnamPedro PascalGarrett Hedlund and Adria Arjona.

The J.C. Chandor-directed drama centers on five friends whose loyalties are tested when they reunite to take down a South American drug lord, unleashing a chain of unintended consequences.

The film is called Triple Frontier because of its setting in the notorious border zone with Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge. That area is no longer considered as dangerous as it once was; tourists visit the area now.

Chandor has worked on the script and the location still borders Brazil.

It will shoot in Oahu, as well as in Colombia and California.

Adria Arjona

Described as equal parts humor and horror, fantasy and drama, Good Omens takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan — except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Arjona will play Anathema Device, practical occultist and descendant of the ancient witch Agnes Nutter.

Good Omens also stars Jack Whitehall, Michael McKean and Miranda Richardson.

Good Omens is written by Gaiman (American Gods), who also will serve as showrunner. Produced by BBC Studios, Narrativia and the Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide, it will launch in the UK on Prime Video before going on to BBC Two.

There’s no place like home for Adria Arjona

The 23-year-old Puerto Rican/Guatemalan has landed her first series lead.

Adria Arjona

She’s been cast as Dorothy in Emerald City, NBC’s 10-episode straight-to-series Wizard of Oz drama.

The casting follows Arjona’s previous television credits. She recently scored her first series regular role in TNT’s untitled Miami drama and her first recurring stints on CBSPerson of Interest and the upcoming season of HBO’s True Detective.

Emerald City, originally developed during the 2013-14 season, was recently resurrected with a new writer/executive producer, David Schulner. He is now joined by Shaun Cassidy, who also will serve as executive producer.

In Emerald City, in the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Arjona) and her K9 police dog are transported to another world, one far removed from our own — a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen before, where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long and a young girl becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands.

Described as a modern and dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz in the vein of Game Of Thrones, drawing upon stories from Baum’s original 14 books, Emerald City hails from Universal Television.
