Morbius’ release date has been delayed by Sony Pictures.
The Jared Leto-led superhero movie will no longer released later this month on January 28, due to concerns around the fast-spreading Omicron variant of the novel coronavirus that has extended the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Instead, Morbius based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name has been pushed back to April 1.
What was Morbius original release date?
Morbius follows the story of Doctor Michael Morbius, a scientist who accidentally turns himself into a vampire.
Morbius is a comic book character known for being an adversary to Spider-Man, but Sony appears to be making Morbius an antihero in their adaptation much like Venom.
The film has piqued many fans’ curiosity because it is unclear which cinematic universe it seems to be set in.
The first trailer featured Vulture (Michael Keaton), the villain from Spider-Man: Homecoming, as well as Morbius walking by a poster of Spider-Man with the word “murderer” graffitied across it, indicating some kind of reference to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man following the events of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
