Morbius was supposed to be released last summer, but thanks to COVID, it got pushed to this Spring, and then more recently to next January. That’s one heck of a wait for a movie many comic book fans seemingly feel indifferent to, but Sony Pictures is clearly banking on the SPUMC (that’s Sony Pictures’ Universe of Marvel Characters) spinoff being a hit.
We may have another explanation for the delay, though, as the actor revealed on a recent edition of The Late Late Show that he’s actually shooting more scenes in a couple of weeks. Perhaps the studio has learned from the negative reaction to the leaked plot, and will make some changes…it’s also possible that this down to Morbius now coming out after Spider-Man 3.
Of course, it’s impossible not to wonder whether he might be filming a cameo for that threequel!
Talking of crossovers, Leto was also asked about Morbius one day meeting Blade – who will be played by Mahershala Ali in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and seemed confident it could become a reality. “You know, that is a good question and I could see that happening in the future,” the Oscar-winner says in the video below. “I do…I can see that happening, yeah.”
