Jared Leto’s ‘Morbius’ delayed to spring amid COVID-19 surge

The ‘Spider-Man’ spinoff Morbius, starring Jared Leto, has been delayed yet again, with the January 28th release date pushed back to April 1st. Morbius stars Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, a biochemist with a rare blood disorder who attempts to cure himself, only to find he’s developed superpowers and a taste for human blood.

Morbius was originally slated for release on July 31st, 2020. The Sony and Marvel film has been delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Sony then announcing that the film would move from October 2021 to early 2022.

The film co-stars Michael Keaton (likely reprising his role as the Vulture from Spider-Man: Homecoming) as well as Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Tyrese Gibson, and Jared Harris. Daniel Espinosa directs from a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
