Some disappointing news for all you comic book fans out there. You’ll have to wait a little longer to watch Jared Leto in the Spider-Man spinoff film, Morbius.
The movie, which is part of Sony’s Spider-Man cinematic universe, was scheduled to hit theaters January 28, 2022. It had already been delayed several times before. It was first scheduled to be released way back in July of 2020, but of course COVID-19 screwed everything up.
Then it was scheduled for March 19, 2021, then October 8, then January 2022, and now finally April 1, 2022, which kinda feels like some weird joke. April Fools, really? Is this when they plan to tell everyone they lost all footage from the movie and it’s never going to be released?
Provided this movie actually gets released in April, it’ll feature Leto playing antihero Michael Morbius, “who attempts a desperate gamble in order to treat a rare blood discoed, one that makes him more familiar with a darkness inside of him.”
In addition to Leto, this flick will star Michael Keaton, Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson and Adria Arjona.
With the success of Spider-Man, Sony is hoping Morbius can get at least a little taste of that success, but if they continue pushing it back, people are going to lose interest.
