Morbius, the spin-off to Spider-Man, falls victim to the effects of Corona. The film is said to tell the story of the successful biochemist Michael Morbius, who is played by Jared Leto.

Unfortunately, the plan goes completely wrong and instead he gets supernatural abilities that turn him into a vampire-like creature. Originally, Morbius was supposed to hit the screens in the US this summer, but is now being moved to March 19, 2021 instead.
