According to some production notes on: morbius, Matt Smith’s character is called Milo. The notes describe Milo as “the scion of a very, very, very wealthy family that has grown into a man determined to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life for as long as he can — mostly by spending his money to live the good life in New York.”

In the film, it appears that both Jared Leto’s Morbius and Matt Smith’s Milo struggle with the same condition, with Morbius being “afraid of his powers” while Milo is one who “embraces them”. Based on the notes, it appears that Matt Smith’s Milo is a combination of Loxias Crown and Emil Nikos, the latter of whom was a childhood friend and victim of Morbius’ transformation.
