Release date:

Morbius will now be released on April 1st 2022 rather than on January 28th 2022.

The movie was originally due to be unleashed on July 31, 2020, but this was put back to  March 19, 2021, due to obvious circumstances. The release date then moved to October 8th 2021.


Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in Marvel Comics’ Amazing Spider-Man #101. This followed the February 1971 updating of the comic-book industry’s self-censorship board, the Comics Code Authority, that lifted a ban on vampires and certain other supernatural characters. It was also the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee.
