Two years after Sony announced Morbius, the film finally reached theaters in April 2022 to lackluster reviews. The movie had its flaws, from obvious plot holes and continuity errors to mediocre acting and poor writing and direction and its first release bombed. None of this stopped the film from securing a rerelease only months later.

The film's embarrassingly low ratings turned Morbius into a meme. The internet joined forces to mock the Jared Leto movie and joked about a sequel called Morbius 2: It's Morbin Time. Sony took the trend seriously and sent Morbius back into cinemas. The film failed a second time, leading to discussions about other movies that deserve a second chance on the big screen.

Joe Gibbs Racing issues statement about Pocono disqualification

  Joe Gibbs Racing issues statement about Pocono disqualification On Sunday, JGR’s Nos. 11 and 18 cars finished 1-2 at the M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400 at Pocono Raceway. But both cars were disqualified after failing post-race inspections, giving the victory to third-place finisher Chase Elliott. JGR had until midday Monday to appeal NASCAR’s penalties but declined to do so. They issued a statement about the situation and acknowledged the issues with the cars driven by Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch.

Blade, The Superior Vampire Superhero

Marvel Studios recently released a slate of upcoming films to fill out Phase 5 & 6 of their acclaimed cinematic universe. One of those titles brings the vampire-hunting Dhampir Blade back to the silver screen and into the MCU. Fans are eager to compare the entry to Wesley Snipes' 1998 action-packed classic.

Instead of Jared Leto's disappointing performance as a Spider-man villain, New Line Cinema could have had a second chance at box office success by rereleasing Blade into the cinemas. The cult following the film has garnered over the years would easily out-pace the disappointing box office haul from Morbius' rerelease.

Batman Featured A Much Better Appearance From Michael Keaton

When the trailer for Morbius was released, the film teased Michael Keaton's Vulture from the MCU's Spider-man: Homecoming. Fans speculated how Spider-man could be a part of Morbius' universe, considering the recent Marvel Studios foray into the multiverse. Sony brought Adrian Toomes into Morbius while breaking the rules of Doctor Strange's spell in Spider-man: No Way Home.

Tim Burton's gritty rendition of The Dark Knight received a limited rerelease in 2019. Michael Keaton's Batman is a much better choice for a rerelease, even in 2022. It's about time the film that helped define modern comic book movies was introduced to a new generation of fans.

Sony Should Have Gone With The Amazing Spider-Man

Sony missed the point. When audiences made Morbius into a meme that didn't mean they wanted to see the movie again. Hopefully, Sony learned a lesson from the disappointing box office returns. They should have taken a cue when Andrew Garfield captured hearts after his return and redemption in Spider-man: No Way Home.

Here’s the full list of upcoming Marvel movies and shows

  Here’s the full list of upcoming Marvel movies and shows Marvel studios have been releasing sizzling hot content and fast for over a decade now. Since 2008, the studio has seen a release of 23 feature films on its Infinity saga, skyrocketing its fanbase with captivating storylines. Delving into Phase four of the Multiverse saga has further explained the comics and has been pretty exciting for Marvel fans. But the Marvel cinematic universe is not done yet. After a few successful TV shows, including the likes of WandaVision and Loki, Disney+ TV shows have become a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

After Marvel Studios scored the second-biggest box office opening of all time, Sony had a chance to rerelease either of Garfield's web-slinging entries. With all the honest social media talk of completing Andrew Garfield's trilogy, The Amazing Spider-man would have made audiences forget about Morbius.

Matt Smith Comments on Morbius Tanking at Box Office

  Matt Smith Comments on Morbius Tanking at Box Office Matt Smith recognizes that Morbius didn't do as well as expected but chooses not to let it upset him.Addressing the situation in a Rolling Stone interview, Smith acknowledges how the film seemed to have been "thrown under the bus" after its unimpressive theatrical run. At the same time, the actor has not let it affect him very much. Having a movie bomb might be disappointing, but, ultimately, this is just entertainment. Making a movie that doesn't work as well as hoped is not that big a deal, because as Smith says, he's not out there trying to save lives.

The Second To Last Night In Soho

Director Edgar Wright is known for his fast-paced comedies with quick edits combined with stellar soundtracks. From Shaun of the Dead to Hot Fuzz, Wright understands the subtleties involved with adding horror elements in his films. Last Night In Soho is a little more serious and terrifying than these aforementioned films, though. It received average scores from critics, but fans of Edgar Wright are in for a treat when they watch this.

Emerging star Thomasin McKenzie opposite Anya Taylor-Joy and her breathtaking voice. It's a haunting, visual joyride from start to finish. If for no other reason, the movie should be rereleased because it was Dame Diana Rigg's final performance, who played Queen of Thorns Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones and Mrs. Peel on the BBC's Avengers.

The Northman Is A Much More Engaging Adaptation

Morbius was, of course, a loose adaptation of comic book source material. Instead of paying to see that mess of a movie, The Northman offers a much more exciting and visually-stunning experience. As an adaptation itself, the plot is very similar to Williams Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Director Robert Eggers went straight to Shakespeare's source material, a Norse myth about Saxo Amleth. The bloody Viking tale offers incredible performances by Alexander and Bill Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and a brief but memorable appearance from Willem Dafoe.

The Bearable Weight of Nicolas Cage's Massive Talent

Nicolas Cage keeps fans on their toes. He readily jumps from obscure indie films to big-budget box office smashes. The method actor is one of the most original performers in his generation. And his skill is highlighted as part of the plot in one of his latest movies, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

Facing financial ruin, Nicolas Cage, playing a version of himself, accepts a $1 million payment to attend a fan's birthday party. The CIA gets involved, and Cage has to reenact some of his most beloved characters to save lives. Even the two-sentence synopsis sounds far more entertaining than a rerelease of Morbius.

A24 Had A Little Lamb

A24 is emerging as one of the most original motion picture companies in recent memory. The studio has a catalog primarily focused on horror but that isn't limited to one genre. One of A24's films released when audiences were wary of returning to the theaters is the Icelandic folk tale Lamb.

‘Batgirl’ scene ‘leak’ gives ‘Morbius’ a run for its money

  ‘Batgirl’ scene ‘leak’ gives ‘Morbius’ a run for its money Could 'Batgirl' have out-morbed 'Morbius?'So when Twitter account @BatgirlFilm appeared to leak a scene from the movie on social media, the tweet quickly went viral. Until folks took a closer look at the supposed script extract and realized something wasn’t quite kosher here, as the dialogue seemed a little too on the Morbius side of things to be believable.

María and Pétur discover a lamb-human hybrid born in their barn. The couple raises the kid, and then the plot gets stranger and more uncomfortable. Director Valdimar Jóhannsson made a terrifyingly fascinating film far more worthy of a rerelease than Morbius.

Pig Offers More Emotion Than Morbius

Nicolas Cage is a busy man. In addition to The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, the method actor starred in an incredible film about a man and his truffle pig. Instead of watching Morbius perform tests on vampire bats again, moviegoers missed a shot at Cage avenging his stolen swine.

Living in the Oregon wilderness, Cage plays a truffle hunter named Robin in Pig. When his prized pig goes missing, Robin experiences an emotional upheaval. The plot takes unexpected turns, and Nic Cage offers much more emotion than Jared Leto did as Michael Morbius.

The Snyder Cut Is The Real Second-Chance Superhero Film

Discuss films that deserve a second chance, and Morbius doesn't break the top ten. The rerelease was an embarrassing miscue by Sony. The studio released the same cut a second time without fixing any of the egregious errors that made the movie a risible meme in the first place. Sony should take some notes from Zack Snyder's Justice League.

When #ReleaseTheSnyderCut made its rounds on Twitter, no one expected a 4-hour Justice League cut with considerably more than Zack Snyder's original vision. Since The Snyder Cut premiered on HBO Max, a second chance at a theatrical run was more deserved than Morbius.

Everything Everywhere All At Once Again

Critics agree the plot of Morbius is all over the place. Instead of suffering through Leto's attempted comedy in a movie that couldn't tell if it was a horror film, superhero film, or neither, Everything Everywhere All At Once is all over the place, but everything a narrative film should be.

Stuck in a rut and deep in debt, Evelyn Wang, played by the incomparable Michelle Yeoh, transcends an interdimensional rupture into the multiverse. She experiences multiple instances of herself and life's possibilities. Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinerthas made a film with more heart and emotion than any superhero release in the last several years.
