Variety reports that Sony has postponed the theatrical release of Morbius, the Spider-Man spinoff thriller starring Jared Leto, as studios continue to grapple with the pandemic’s impact on the film industry.
The movie, which has been delayed numerous times amid the COVID-19 crisis, was most recently scheduled to debut on March 19. It will now premiere in theaters on Oct. 8.
Most movies that were once scheduled for early 2021 have already been pushed back due to the pandemic. However, there are several titles still on the calendar for the first few months of the year, including Camila Cabello’s Cinderella (also from Sony) on Feb. 5 and Disney and 20th Century’s The King’s Man on March 12. Curiously, Sony did not mention plans for Cinderella in the announcement, though it’s unlikely the fantasy adaptation will keep its February release date — unless it’s sent to a streaming service or lands on premium video-on-demand early.
