After the triumph of Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans are eager for more Spidey-related content, which is why the anticipation for Morbius has risen very high. This has led to many looking for answers as to whether or not they can find the comic book feature starring Academy Award winner Jared Leto on Netflix.
The only thing more popular than Spider-Man is the villains that the webhead has fought repeatedly both in the pages of the infamous comics and on the magnificent silver screen. And after the success of Venom, Sony is going to be bringing serval other evildoers into the mix with exciting solo endeavors, the next of which being Morbius, The Living Vampire.
The motion picture follows Leto’s character Dr. Michael Morbius who suffers from a rare blood disease that he is desperately trying to cure. In his attempts to rid himself of this sickness, he is left with a unique form of vampirism, giving him superhuman abilities. Alongside Leto bringing this exciting ordeal to life is a solid cast consisting of Matt Smith, Adria Ajorna, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, Tyrese Gibson, and Michael Keaton.
There have been many different rumors and reports that there will be more crossovers with Marvel characters between universes which could mean Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from No Way Home or Majershala Ali’s Blade heard in The Eternals post-credit scene could very well come in contact with Morbius. The solo feature could be the start of something big, and if fans want to know if it’s one of the many choices on Netflix, they should make sure to keep reading.
Morbius 2022 Release Date:
Sony has pushed back the release date for the Marvel film Morbius, starring Academy Award winner Jared Leto. While the Columbia Pictures title was previously scheduled to open on January 28, it will now hit theaters in IMAX and premium large formats on April 1.
Morbius has encountered several delays – all thanks to the pandemic. Initially scheduled to be released on July 10, 2020, the dates shifted to July 31, 2020, then March 19, 2021, then October 8, 2021, and finally to January 21, 2022, before going back again to the original date of January 28.
With the surge in Omicron cases, it is an understandable situation and scheduling for April just makes sense.
When will Sony’s Marvel Movie ‘Morbius’ be on Netflix?
The Marvel comics movie Morbius is finally getting his theatrical debut albeit now pushed back from January 28th to April 1st. The movie is among the first batch of Sony movies to hit Netflix in the newly announced first window deal. Here’s what you can expect and when you can expect Morbius on Netflix.
There is now say way to give fans bad news, especially when it comes to disappointing them as to the reveal of a certain comic book-based flick’s availability. Unfortunately, it should be known that Morbius is not available on Netflix as of this posting.
But the deal between Sony and Netflix will most assuredly see the Leto-lead movie available at some point in the future. While nothing has been officially announced, the folks at What’s on Netflix estimate that the film will arrive on the streamer somewhere between August and November 2022. It might be longer than that, but it’s a good estimate.
Until then, there are several other exciting comic book-related titles available on the streaming service ready to stream now! These excellent options include Daredevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, and Jupiter’s Legacy.
When will Morbius be on Netflix in the United States?
Let’s begin with the US where the big new Sony deal primarily exists (we’ll come onto international territories in a second).
For predicting the rough estimation of Morbius on Netflix, we can use both the old Disney and Netflix deal and Starz’s current deal with Sony. Let’s first look at two examples of when Sony movies hit Starz in the past. With Bad Boys For Life, it premiered in theaters on January 17th, 2020. It was then added 201 days later to Starz on August 5th, 2020. Its expiry date from Starz, which we’ve obtained, is currently set for February 4th, 2022.
Bloodshot was added to Starz on August 8th, 2020 after it premiered in mid-January 2020 (roughly 150 days) whereas if we go back a bit further, the Charlie’s Angels reboot was added in June 2020 after premiering in November 2019 (223 days).
So based on these three, we can come up with a rough estimate.Now originally we were expecting Morbius to land anywhere between June 2021 and early September 2021.With this now push back just over two months, we’re now expecting Morbius to be available at some point between August and November 2022.
Once Morbius is on Netflix they’ll then hold the movie for 18 months before it departs for Disney properties (Hulu being the most likely destination in this instance).
Will other Netflix regions get Morbius?
At the moment, there’s no way of knowing whether Morbius will hit Netflix internationally because the deals Sony has with international regions of Netflix aren’t publicly known.
What we do know, however, is that many regions of Netflix do get Sony movies roughly two years after they release in theaters. Men in Black: International for example is hit Netflix in Canada and the UK in May 2021 after first being released back in June 2019.
Beyond those regions, a lot of Sony movies do pop up but not in any logical schedule but we’ll keep you posted. For more Sony movies coming to Netflix in the US, check out our big preview of them all here.
Will you be heading to the cinemas to catch Morbius or will you be waiting for it to hit Netflix?
Where to watch Morbius
The road to release for the Sony Marvel film about the living vampire has outdone The New Mutants when it comes to the amount of release dates the movie has had since it was first announced. Originally July 10, 2020, was supposed to be when fans got to experience the comic book motion picture, but it was punched back due to the pandemic to March 19, 2021.
Then another delay forced it to be pushed back to Oct. 8, 2021. The film was then scheduled to debut in theaters on Jan. 21, 2022. But a report from The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Morbius has been pushed back yet again and will now be coming out on April 1, 2022.
