Simply as Spider-Man: No Method Residence crushed data on the field workplace, the world was coping with its personal, actual disaster. The variety of novel coronavirus circumstances spiked worldwide, with the omicron variant driving a brand new COVID-19 surge. Within the months previous the movie’s launch, studies stated that Sony thought-about delaying No Method Residence due to the delta variant. Sony finally caught with a December seventeenth launch date in most nations because the delta wave died down. However the omicron surge is so important that it satisfied the studio to push again the discharge date of Morbius. The subsequent installment of the Sony Spider-Man Universe (SSU) now received’t hit theaters till April.


Between Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Method Residence, the SSU seems to be fairly profitable to this point. The 2 motion pictures will high $2 billion on the field workplace mixed, though most of that haul will come from the MCU’s Spider-Man. And part of the earnings will go to Disney.

However Sony achieved its SSU targets even earlier than suspending the Morbius launch date once more. The studio linked Tom Hardy’s Venom to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, organising a possible face-off between the 2 that Spider-Man followers will wish to see. To not point out the older Spider-Man variants that returned for No Method Residence. There’s all the time an opportunity that we’ll see them in different SSU and MCU adventures.

With the introduction of Morbius (Jared Leto), the SSU will solely develop additional. The story will possible hook up with the MCU someway. The seeds are already there as Vulture (Michael Keaton) will probably be within the film. Nevertheless, we’ll have to attend some time to learn how that can occur.

New Morbius launch date

Till this week’s delay, Morbius had a January twenty eighth launch date. All we had between us and the following SSU was one other month. However Sony determined to postpone the premiere to April 1st. That’s a delay of greater than two months for the extremely anticipated film. But it surely’s additionally an comprehensible one, contemplating the large omicron wave.

Morbius received’t make No Method Residence-grade cash. However contemplating the proximity to Spidey, it might generate loads of ticket gross sales. And Sony cares concerning the closing figures. The one solution to make interconnected SSU tales is for them to pay for themselves after which some. It’s possible that Morbius will get a minimum of a sequel, similar to Venom did earlier than it. That’s if sufficient folks pay the ticket value to see it in theaters.

The larger drawback for Sony is likely to be the elevated competitors coming within the following months. As Murphy Multiverse explains, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 launches across the similar time (April eighth). Moreover, the extremely anticipated The Batman has a March 4th launch date. That places numerous strain on Morbius, because the movie has to carry out properly for a number of weeks, not simply the opening weekend.

That’s assuming different studios received’t alter their launch plans for the approaching months. Omicron will affect each new blockbuster, not simply the Morbius launch date.
