The new movie from Marvel Universe starring Jared Leto was supposed to be released last year but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The official synopsis reads: "One of Marvel's most convincing and conflicting characters comes to the big screen as Oscar winner Jared Leto turns into a mysterious antihero, Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others who suffer his fate, Dr. Morbius tries to take risks. What at first glance seems like a radical success soon proves to be a drug that is potentially worse than the disease."

Speaking earlier about his character, Leto told that Morbius is a problematic figure, but deep down he is good. "Inside Morbius, there is a person who has a moral code. There is a good person. After all, it is this common struggle between good and evil. And, I guess, we’ll see what prevails in the end," the actor says, adding,“ That’s what I really like about this film. We are not following such a clear path. There is no clear line between what is right and what is wrong. There is a gray area," he concluded.

Barring any further changes to the schedule, "Morbius" will finally bow on January 28, 2022 – two years after the release of the first trailer.
