Why has ‘Morbius’ been Delayed?


Sony Pictures’ Morbius movie starring Jared Leto has been delayed for the seventh time.

This movie was originally going to be released in July 2020 and was further pushed back to due to the worldwide COVID pandemic. The last official release date was only three weeks away on January 28, 2022.

Now, Sony Pictures has delayed Morbius to April 1, 2022. This is amidts the rise of an Omicron variant of COVID that’s been spreading. Could this be the only reason?

There has also been a point highlighted by twitter user @fictionalyalive. Sony Pictures has not delayed Uncharted starring Tom Holland, this is currently still releasing on February 18, 2022.

Wide speculation from fans on Twitter happened, after the news about the delay broke out last night; this movie could also be delayed because the studio may be including Andrew Garfield in reshoots. The recent positive reception from Spider-Man: No Way Home that Andrew Garfield that gotten, could have affected their decisions to include him.

Brandon Davis from well-known entertainment news site ComicBook.com, considers it less likely that Andrew Garfield will appear in the movie.

Brandon has also mentioned that Sony Pictures could be confident about Morbius potentially performing at the Box Office, therefore giving the movie some more space between their blockbuster hit Spider-Man No Way Home.
