Morbius: Sony Postpones Marvel Movie Release Again

Morbius, which stars Jared Leto, has been delayed once more from March 19, 2021 to October 8, 2021 by Sony.

As reported by Variety, Morbius is one of the many films that have been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and fans will need to wait a bit longer to see Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochehemist who battled Spider-Man in Marvel Comics that accidentally becomes a monster while trying to create a cure for his rare blood disease.

Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa and written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, and the film is part of Sony’s Spider-Man Marvel movie universe that will also include Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which is currently scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.

Morbius’ first trailer was released in January 2021 and it revealed a surprising connection to the universe of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man with Michael Keaton making an appearance, presumably reprising his role as Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. Vulture.
