Well, boils and ghouls, we’ve got some bad news. Just ahead of its theatrical release, Sony has delayed the release of Marvel’s Morbius (again). Last announced to be opening in theaters on January 28th, Morbius will now be landing in theaters this April.


Deadline is reporting that “one factor motivating the push was Sony’s huge (continuing) success with Spider-Man: No Way Home, which established itself as the highest-grossing film of 2021,” bringing in $1.37 billion at box offices and will continue to show on screens meant for Morbius.


Jared Leto stars as Michael Morbius, a scientist who, while trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transforms himself into a living vampire. Though disgusted by his own bloodlust, he chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.


Tyrese Gibson stars as FBI agent Simon Stroud; Jared Harris (“The Terror”) plays Morbius’ mentor; Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”) plays the film’s villain Loxias Crown; and Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising) is Morbius’ love interest.


Daniel Espinosa (Life) directs from the script penned by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless based on the Morbius character created by writer Roy Thomas which made its debut in Amazing Spider-Man #101.


Morbius will now (hopefully) open in theaters on April 1, 2022.
