Sony Pictures has delayed Morbius’ release date until April 1st, 2022, which means it’s now been pushed back seven times. The upcoming Sony Pictures Marvel movie was supposed to be released on January 28th, 2022. However, it’s now coming out (hopefully) being released in cinemas on April 1st, 2022.
Morbius was originally slated for release on July 31, 2020. Yet, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the movie was delayed from March 2021 to October 2021 to January 21, 2022, to January 28, 2022, and now, to April 1, 2022.
Life’s Daniel Espinosa is directing Morbius, with Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless leading the screen story and screenplay. The film is going to star Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Magrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.
Morbius’ release date was pushed back again!
There are some people who are now coming up with theories on why the movie was delayed. Most people seem to think that the new Omicron variant of COVID-19 is the reason why Sony decided to push the film back.
However, there are some people who believe that Sony Pictures might want to add a secret cameo in the movie. After Spider-Man: No Way Home’s incredible box office takings and fans’ reaction to Andrew Garfield’s return as his version of Spidey, there are some people who think that he might be filming a cameo for Morbius.
We’re going to have to wait and see what happens with this upcoming Morbius movie. I love the idea of seeing Andrew Garfield return as Spider-Man again, but I’m not sure if it’ll happen.
What we do know is that the film is going to feature Michael Keaton’s Vulture. Keaton revealed relatively recently that he is filming reshoots for that movie, so maybe Sony might want more of his Vulture in the film. That is a very good thing.
