·1-min read

The release of sinister vampiric superhero film Morbius has been pushed back yet again amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The film, starring Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto, has already been delayed several times due to the health crisis.

Leto stars as Michael Morbius, a brilliant scientist whose attempts at curing a rare blood disorder leave him with mysterious powers.

Its release in UK cinemas was most recently scheduled for January 28 but this has now been postponed to April 1, a spokesman for Sony confirmed.

Morbius is produced by Columbia Pictures in association with Marvel and also stars Matt Smith, Jared Harris and Tyrese Gibson.

A previous trailer showed Leto’s anti-hero, who has been missing for two months, being found on a container ship that washed up on Long Island, New York.

Morbius is seen flying through subway tunnels before saying: “There’s something inside of me that wants to hunt and consume blood.”

The trailer also includes references to Spider-Man and Tom Hardy’s Venom.

It features Michael Keaton who played supervillain The Vulture in Spiderman: Homecoming, who says “hey doctor Michael, you and I should stay in touch.”
