Fans of Marvel Comics will have to wait a little longer to see one of their favorite vampires make his debut on the big screen.
Sony Pictures announced on Monday that the release of Morbius will be postponed by three months. The film, part of Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe (not to be confused with Disney’s MCU), will be released on April 1, 2022, instead of the previously announced January 28th.
This is not the first (or second or third) time that Morbius has had to postpone his red carpet debut. COVID-19 had different plans for the film, which was scheduled to premiere on July 10, 2020.
As the Pandemic spread, Morbius’ release dates were changed, first to July 31, 2020, then to March 19, 2021, then to October 8, 2021, and finally to January 21, 2022, before returning to January 28. Omicron is currently the dominant twist in Pandemic, showing no signs of slowing down.
Jimmy O. Morbios will compete with Easter Sunday, starring Yang and Tiffany Haddish, and with Chris Pine’s thriller The Contractor.
Sony has received huge box office hits with Spider-Man: No Way Home and Venom: Let There Be Carnage, so it seems logical that it aims to give Morbiിയs more opportunities at a time when public health is a problem. Problems. Shares are high as the company creates an isolated spinoff centering on Spider-Man villain Crown the Hunter.
In a deal that preceded Marvel’s significant involvement in the filmmaking and acquisition of the Walt Disney Company, Sony licensed the rights to the Spider-Man personality and many of his rivals and friends.
In the film, Jared Leto plays an antihero named Michael Morbios, who takes a risky risk of curing a rare blood disease that makes him more aware of his inner darkness. Morbius, directed by Daniel Espinosa, stars Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal and Tyrese Gibson.
