Morbius delayed until April 1

Morbius was so close to release, but, alas, the coronavirus has struck yet again.

Sony Pictures has opted to push Morbius back from Jan. 28 to April 1. According to Deadline, the pandemic wasn’t the only reason for the move. With Spider-Man: No Way Home performing so well, they wanted to give the film a bit more room.

This marks the seventh release date change for the film. We’re hopeful this will be the last one.

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Morbius is scheduled to hit theaters on April 1, 2022.
