The Northern Quarter Has Been Turned Into A New York Film Set For Spider-Man Spin-Off Morbius

Manchester’s Northern Quarter has been transformed into New York as a Spider-Man spin-off is being filmed in the city.

Scenes from the hotly anticipated Spider-Man spin-off, Morbius, are being filmed around the Stevenson Square and Oldham Street this week.

Morbius tells the story of a biochemist who tries to cure himself of a rare blood disorder but ends up infecting himself with a form of vampirism instead. Yikes.

Jared Leto stars as Spider-Man villain Dr Michael Morbius and former Dr Who star Matt Smith also appears as Morbius’s Loxias Crown, while True Detective star Adria Arjona plays Morbius’s fiance Martine Bancroft.

Hundreds of people lined the streets to get a glimpse of the action which saw yellow taxis, blue U.S. Mail postboxes,  USA Today and New York Times newsstands and a New York City appear in the Northern Quarter.
