Jared Leto, at the moment, is buzzing with his upcoming multi-starring titled “The Little Things” and, for a big surprise, cameo as his Joker of DC Extended Universe in the highly anticipated revised version of Justice League of Zack Snyder.

But the same can not be said about another project of Jared Leto with Sony and Marvel titled “Morbius.” It has been revealed that Morbius is hence delayed once again for about seven months after it was all set to come out in March this year.

Sony had healthy plans to create their very own Universe of Marvel characters after the huge success of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spiderman movie and Sony’s own “Venom” performing really great at the box office, and all this led to the plans of making a movie on the famous vampire from the Marvel Comics “Morbius.”

Morbius is all set to see Jared Leto in the titular character of Dr. Michael Morbius, who is on the verge of developing a cure for his blood disorder that immediately results in him turning into a Vampire who can survive by sucking on other people’s blood.

After Venom’s commercial success, Sony looks forward to Morbius as another very scary origin story that may connect well with the audience. Still, the ongoing Covid-19 seems to have some another plan, and here we all are discussing the new revised date for Sony and Marvel’ Morbius and what to expect from it.

When Will The Spider-Man Spin-Off Release

Sony has announced earlier this morning that they are delaying Morbius by about seven months. Morbius, which was set to come out on March 19, 2021, has now been revised and will be released on October 8, 2021. 

This is for the second time that the studios had to adjust delays as initially Morbius was all set to release on July 31, 2020, but those plans scrapped because of the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, and the movie is just one of the many other films and the studios who had to change their plans completely because of the Pandemic.

We consider that tech giant Sony is trying not to risk it all by releasing it in the theatres quickly as we can already see even big-budget films that are getting a theatrical release are struggling a lot to make an impact.

Thus it might be the very best strategy to wait instead of dropping the film now or on a streaming service and releasing it when the situations are comparatively safer, and theaters start filling up again.

Even Hollywood’s most significant, Tom Hanks, in a recent interview, said that though the streaming services have brought a new revolution, more big franchise movies are meant for theatres only.
