Sony Pictures Releasing

Sony Pictures Releasing has shifted “Morbius” from its April 27 release to an April 1 bow.

The studio says the success of “Spider-Man : No Way Home”, which is still packing them in, led to the decision.

One of Marvel’s most compelling and conflicted characters comes to the big screen as Oscar® winner Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble.  While at first it seems to be a radical success, a darkness inside him is unleashed. Will good override evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new urges?

Daniel Espinosa directs the pic, which also stars Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.

No word on a Spider-Man cameo yet.
