‘Morbius’ Release Date Pushed to October 2021!!

Jared Leto‘s Morbius will not be haunting audiences in March. The Sony and Marvel film has moved its release date to Oct. 8. It previously had been set for March 18.

The move comes as theater-going remains uncertain amid the coronavirus pandemic.  The film was previously slated for last July before the pandemic delayed it.

Morbius stars Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffered from a rare blood disease and turned himself into a living vampire during an attempt to cure himself. Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson and Jared Harris also star in the film, which is directed by Daniel Espinosa.

Michael Keaton, who played The Vulture in Sony and Marvel StudiosSpider-Man: Homecoming, also appears in some capacity in the film, apparently reprising his role.

The first trailer for Morbius suggested for the first time that Sony PicturesUniverse of Marvel Characters is connected to Disney‘s Marvel Cinematic Universe, not only by the inclusion of Keaton, but also by street signs calling Spider-Man a murderer, a nod to Spidey being framed in 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.
