Sony Pictures has just debuted a new poster for Morbius. It seems that the coronavirus situation won’t affect the official release of this movie. The reason why is that production wrapped up well before the health emergency started. The movie is still in post-production, and the movie studio has now pressed on the marketing accelerator to pump up the fans. A new poster made it to the web (via ComicBook) featuring Dr. Michael Morbius transforming into his darker and superpowered side.
You can check the new Morbius poster in the gallery below.

Morbius is Sony’s adaptation of the Marvel anti-hero Morbius the Living Vampire. The film sees Daniel Espinosa (Life, Safe House) behind the camera with a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Netflix’s Lost In Space), based on the Marvel Comics character created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane who first appeared in 1971’s “Amazing Spider-Man” #101.
Originally Dr. Michael Morbius, the character tried to cure his rare blood disease only to become afflicted with a form of vampirism that gave him superior strength, fangs and a taste for plasma. The character then fought Spider-Man several times. Eventually, he earned several of his own books where he had a more heroic arc. He has an ongoing feud with the character Blade the Vampire Hunter in the source material.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach will produce the film together with Lucas Foster, with Sony executive Palak Patel overseeing for the studio. Moreover, this is one of several Spider-Man spin-off projects in development at Sony, including Silk, Nightwatch, Black Cat, and Silver Sable.
Morbius soars into theaters on July 31, 2020. What do you think about the Morbius trailer? Let us know your first impression in the comments section below.
