Jared Leto’s marvel-ous film is moving to the fall…
Sony Pictures’ Morbius, starring the 49-year-old actor and singer, has been moved back by seven months, from March 19 to October 8.
With COVID-19 cases raging as we await a calmer administration to set foot in Washington and deal with the nation’s health crisis, many are expecting this year’s first quarter theatrical releases to move.
Morbius moves to a release date currently occupied by United Artists Releasing’s animated sequel The Addams Family 2.
This is a major Marvel movie for Sony, and the studio is protecting it rather than sending the film to PVOD.
In Morbius, Biochemist Michael Morbius (Leto) tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
Daniel Espinosa directs off a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Buck Sharpless.
