Marvel Sony movies Morbius was released in theaters on April 1 and although it didn’t make a live box office, it has become an internet meme since its debut. The film is one of the first batch of Sony films to hit Netflix in the newly announced first-window deal. Here’s what you can expect and when you can expect it Morbius on Netflix.

Face some delay, Morbius has fallen victim to the pandemic and was again postponed in January 2022 pushed from January 28 to April 1, 2022. Unfortunately, the film was finally released despite critical scorn but still managed to gross 400 million at the box office.

Part of the Marvel Comics Universe, the film is set in the Spider-Man Universe alongside Jared Leto, Matt Smith and Adria Arjona starring and Daniel Espinosa directing.

Here’s what you can expect from an adaptation called The Living Vampire:

“Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but instead he infects himself with a vampire form.”


When will Morbius is it on Netflix in the US?

Let’s start with the US where the big new Sony deal is in play from January 1, 2022 (we’ll be entering international territory soon).

While we’re still figuring out exactly when Sony’s new theatrical film hits Netflix, we’ve got a good idea thanks to the release date announcement from Uncharted and Umma.

Both titles will be coming to Netflix but not on a uniform fixed schedule. In contrast, so far, we’ve seen Sony movies coming to Netflix either 120 days after their initial release or 147 days as we did with Uncharted.

That means currently, we expect the film to arrive sometime between late July 2022 and the current August 2022.

  • If it arrives 120 days after its theatrical release, it will be on Netflix on July 30 (though it’s worth noting it was removed from the full list of July releases)
  • If it reaches 147 days like Uncharted it will be on Netflix on August 26, 2022.

We can go further and compare the release schedule with Bad Boys For Life which eventually landed on Starz under a similar deal. The film premiered in theaters on January 17, 2020. It was then added 201 days later to Starz on August 5, 2020. The expiration date for Starz, which we have obtained, is currently set for February 4, 2022.

Red added to Starz on August 8, 2020 after premiering in mid-January 2020 (roughly 150 days) whereas if we go back a little further, Charlie’s Angel a reboot was added in June 2020 after premiering in November 2019 (223 days).

One time Morbius is on Netflix, they will then hold the film for 18 months before leaving for the Disney property (Hulu being the most likely destination in this case).


Will other Netflix regions get Morbius?

Currently, there is no way to know whether Morbius will reach Netflix internationally because the deals that Sony has with Netflix’s international territories are not publicly known.

What we do know, however, is that many areas of Netflix are getting Sony movies roughly two years after they hit theaters. The Man in Black: International e.g. Netflix hits Canada and the UK in May 2021 after it was first released back in June 2019.

Outside of these areas, a lot of Sony movies are showing up but not on a logical schedule, but we’ll keep you posted.
