Morbius Delayed Yet Again…But Only For One Week This Time

Morbius is going to be pretty hungry by the time he finally debuts in theaters. Completed but delayed quite a few times now, the film is now delayed yet again by one week, from January 21st, 2022 to January 28th, 2022. Sony keeps doing this for some reason; they also announced that Venom: Let There Be Carnage would finally come out on September 17th of this year, before only a few days later saying nah, let's go on September 24th. You would think they would have it straight before that. We still haven't gotten a new trailer or…anything really for Morbius, so here is that first one again.

Here's Hoping Morbius Is One Of The Better Non-MCU Films

"One of Marvel's most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease."

I have really high hopes for this film, as Morbius has always been one of my personal favorite Marvel characters. Leto seems game for the role. I also can't help but be curious about the role Spider-Man might play in the overall story since he likely won't make an appearance. Like most, I cannot fathom what Sony has up their sleeve for these Spider-Verse films and am very interested in what they could turn this all into. It could also be terrible. Who knows at this point.
