Sony Moves Jared Leto’s ‘Morbius’ Release Date Back Again

Morbius was originally supposed to hit theaters last summer.

Sony announced Jared Leto’s upcoming Morbius solo outing will now hit theaters a week later from where it was originally positioned.

Morbius was initially supposed to hit theaters last summer on July 10, but the pandemic pushed the Marvel film three weeks from it. Then Sony moved the Jared Leto-led film to March 2021, then to October, and recently, the film found itself in January 2022. It feels like a lifetime ago since we got the first look at Morbius and another might be on hold for a little bit longer since the film has faced yet another delay.

On Friday, Sony revealed Jared Leto’s Morbius is now dated a week from its latest January 21, 2022 release date to January 28, 2022. Part of why Morbius might have been delayed is because Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled for December 17, 2021, and a week delay gives the two Sony-Marvel films some more breathing room.

Here is the official synopsis for Morbius:

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed and transforms this healer into a hunter.

Directed Daniel Espinosa from a script written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, the film stars Jared Leto as the lead anti-hero, Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Jared Harris, and Tyrese Gibson. Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing the project with Lucas Foster, while Palak Patel will oversee for Sony.

Morbius is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on January 29, 2022. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Jared Leto’s Morbius, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
