The Jared Leto-starrer Morbius has been pushed back seven months, and will now be released in October.

The Spider-Man spinoff was slated for release in March. The Sony and Marvel film will now be out on October 8, according to Hollywood Reporter.

The move comes as the revival of theatres remains uncertain amid the Covid pandemic in the US. Morbius was previously scheduled for release last July, but was delayed because of the coronavirus crisis.

The film stars Leto as Dr Michael Morbius, a scientist who suffers from a rare blood disease and turns himself into a vampire during an attempt to cure himself. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius also features Adria Arjona, Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson and Jared Harris.

Michael Keaton, who played The Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming, is expected to make an appearance in the film. Reportedly, he will reprise his villainous role.
