Jared Leto enters the Marvel universe with the Morbius movie. You can learn all the details about the Morbius movie with this article.
Marvel‘s cinematic world had entered the anti-hero world with Venom, and they want to continue that with his famous Spider-Man nemesis Morbius. People love anti-hero movies, and Sony Pictures is aware of that. Sony clearly sees great potential in applying this approach to comic book films, especially when Venom’s worldwide box office total left theaters to over $855 million.
However, COVID-19 makes things quite difficult. The movie Morbius, starring Jared Leto, had to be postponed several times due to the pandemic. So what is the latest information about the movie?
When is the Morbius release date?
If everything was normal and 2020 was not a disaster, we would be able to watch Morbius in the summer of 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the film was first postponed to 19 March 2021 and, according to the latest information, to October 2020.
We should wait a little longer to watch Marvel’s Living Vampire. But fortunately, 2020 didn’t bring us a vampire catastrophe.
Who is the cast of the Morbius?
The Morbius cast will be led by Jared Leto, who will play the titular Dr. Michael Morbius, and this movie will be Jared Leto‘s first Marvel movie. But it’s not his first anti-hero role. As you know, Leto also has played The Joker character in the DC universe. But don’t worry, it’s been confirmed that playing Morbius won’t affect his future as the Joker in other DC movies.
