This postponement is not the first, neither is it the second or third. The film was supposed to debut at the theatres on July 10, 2020, but got pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic that had the cinemas across the world on lockdown.
As the evolving pandemic continued, “Morbius” cycled through three release dates. At these dates, it was scheduled for the premiere; on July 31, 2020, then March 19, 2021, then October 8, 2021, and finally moving January 28, 2022, which we assumed will be the last, until this recent development due to the raging COVID-19 variants.
In the film, Jared Leto plays antihero Michael Morbius, who attempts a desperate gamble in order to treat a rare blood disease, one that causes him to become more acquainted with the darkness within him. “Morbius” is directed by Daniel Espinosa and co-stars Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal and Tyrese Gibson.
Morbius’s delay may put a brief halt on Sony’s momentum following Venom 2: Let there be Carnage and Kraven The Hunter movie. Still, the amount of attention and hype the l more than likely help it at the box office whenever it eventually comes out.
With the latest update, Morbius will arrive on the big screen in spring, one month before the next MCU movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is sure to be another epic blockbuster. We hope that it doesn’t get postponed too.
