We’ve been waiting to see where else Sony can take its live-action Spider-verse following the mixed bag that was 2018’s Venom film, but we’re going to be waiting a few months longer. Sony has delayed its upcoming film Morbius until the fall, according to a report from Variety.
Sony has reportedly pushed Morbius from its already delayed March 19 release until October 8, 2021, Variety writes. The film, set to star Jared Leto, has been on Sony’s schedule for a while now. It was originally set to release in July 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It held onto its March 19, 2021 release date at least up through mid-December, before this latest delay.
Jared Leto plays the part of Morbius, the Living Vampire, an anti-hero from the Spider-Man comics. Like many of Spider-Man’s allies and enemies, Morbius is a mutation resulting from the combination of human and animal DNA. Dr. Michael Morbius seeks to cure his rare blood disease but, in doing so, inherits many vampiric characteristics. Though he began life as a villain, he’s morphed into an anti-hero character in the vein of Venom.
