Sony has postponed the release date of the Morbius movie due to a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases because of the Omicron variant. The film, which was earlier scheduled to release on January 28, will hit theaters on April 1.
The movie will tell the story of Dr. Michael Morbius, a gifted physician who lives with an incurable blood disease. To survive, he seeks a radical cure derived from vampire bats. It turns out that the "cure" works all too well, and suddenly he is endowed with all the powers of a vampire, including echolocation and, of course, an unstoppable thirst for blood.
In Morbius, Jared Leto takes on the role of Marvel's antihero Morbius, the living vampire. The film also stars Matt Smith, Adria Archon, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson. Morbius is directed by Daniel Espinosa from a screenplay by Burke Sharpless and Matt Sazama. The film is produced by Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Lucas Foster.
Look for Morbius in theaters on April 1, 2022.
