Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.
Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.
Morbius has gone through several release dates. Sony first announced the project for a July 10, 2020 release date before pushing it back to July 31, 2020. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the studio decided to move Morbius out of the 2020 season to a projected release date of March 19, 2021. When it appeared that theaters would not be ready to open, Sony decided to move the release date back seven months to October 8, 2021. Yet now with a delay to January, this means the film is arriving in theaters eighteen months after the initial release date and over two years from when audiences saw the first trailer. While Sony did move the release of Morbius twice, they have yet to move Venom: Let There Be Carnage out of its summer release date. Despite Morbius finishing production first and having long-finished post-production, it appears Sony wants to keep Venom: Let There Be Carnage as their summer tentpole (for now, anyway). It also implies a sense of flexibility in the interconnectivity between films in the cinematic universe since one doesn’t need to come out before the other, meaning despite the Mobius trailer ending with the doctor meeting Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) it appears that it wasn’t setting up an immediate crossover with Morbius in the upcoming third Spider-Man film. How Morbius connects to Venom: Let There Be Carnage and if it has any connection to the larger MCU at all is a mystery fans will have to wait a little longer to find out.
