It is the IGN site which relays the information: Morbius, a feature film that takes place in the universe of Spider-Man (or Spiderverse), has been rejected for a fifth time. Initially expected at the cinema on July 31, 2023, it is postponed to March 2023, then to October 2023 then to January 21, 2023 due to Covid. Then, it is postponed for a short week, suggesting good hopes to have the film this winter in our cinemas. Unfortunately, this will not be the case since Sony Pictures has decided to postpone the release of Morbius once again: it is now expected in US theaters on April 01, 2023.
As a reminder, Morbius is a supervillain who makes his first appearance in the comics in 1971. Doctor by profession and Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, Morbius (played by Jared Leto) suffers from an extremely rare bloody disease which he tries to cure. He then carried out various works on bats for this purpose, experiments which would increase his perception and his strength tenfold, which would allow him to fly … but will give it a strong taste for blood.
To be more precise, Morbius makes his first appearance in the comic book The Amazing Spider-man in 1971 during a fight against Peter Parker. One spiderverse which is always more dense, with the recent release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, who completed the trilogy started with Homecoming. Regarding the other antagonists, we can always get up to date with the two films on Venom : the first was released in October 2018, while the second was released at the end of last year in France.
For the less cinephiles, it is then necessary to count on the excellent adaptations of the adventures of Peter Parker in video games. Marvel’s Spider-Man, released in 2018 for PlayStation 4, pays homage to Peter Parker and his favorite antagonists by incorporating some of Spider-verse’s most iconic. A choice that Sony continued to take with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: expected on PlayStation 5 in 2023, Venom will be the game’s big bad.
