Sony has postponed the theatrical release of Morbius, the comic book thriller starring Jared Leto.
The movie was scheduled to debut on March 19, but it has been pushed back further to October 8 – as studios continue to grapple with the pandemic’s impact on the film industry.
The movie, which has been delayed numerous times amid the COVID-19 crisis, was most recently scheduled to debut on March 19.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, the superhero film centers on the Marvel Comics character who becomes a vampire after attempting to cure himself of a rare blood disease. Leto portrays Michael Morbius, alongside a cast that includes Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson.
Morbuis is part of Sony’s Marvel Universe inspired by Spider-Man characters which began with 2018’s Venom.
