Sony Moves ‘Morbius’ To October

Sony has moved Morbius to a time more fitting for vampires. The studio revealed that the film, which stars Jared Leto, has been pushed from March 19th to October 8th, according to a report on Deadline.

The movie will follow the tale of a biochemist, Michael Morbius (Leto), who attempts to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but when his experiment goes wrong, he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.

In addition to Leto, Morbius features Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson and Michael Keaton.

Having first made his debut in Amazing Spider-Man #101 in October 1971, Morbius was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. The character became so popular that he quickly appeared in other titles before starring in Vampire Tales. Eventually Morbius would go on to have his own series, Morbius the Living Vampire, in 1992.

Morbius is now set to square off with The Addams Family 2, as they are both slated for an October 8, 2021 premiere. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on Morbius.
