The Marvel Sony Movie disease hit theaters on April 1, and while it didn’t live up to the box office, it’s become an internet meme since its debut. The film is among the first Sony films to reach Netflix in the newly announced first window deal. Here’s what to expect and when to expect it disease on Netflix.
Given several delays, disease became a victim of the pandemic and was rescheduled again in January 2022 when it was rescheduled from January 28 to April 1, 2022. Unfortunately, the film was eventually released, albeit to 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 co-operative Spider-Man universe, starring Jared Leto, Matt Smith and Adria Arjona and directed by Daniel Espinosa.
Here’s what you can expect from the adaptation of the so-called Living Vampire:
“Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disorder, but instead accidentally contracts a form of vampirism.”
When will disease be on Netflix in the United States?
Let’s start with the US, where the big new Sony deal is in play from January 1, 2022 (we’ll get to international territories in a moment).
While we’re still working out the exact issues of when new theatrical releases from Sony are heading to Netflix, thanks to the release date announcements we have a good idea Unexplored and ummah.
Both titles are coming to Netflix, but not on a consistent fixed schedule. Instead, we’ve seen Sony films appear either 120 days after they were first released, or 147 days like ours on Netflix Unexplored.
That said, for now, we expect the film to be released sometime between late July 2022 and currently August 2022.
- If it arrives 120 days after its theatrical release date, it will hit Netflix on July 30 (though it’s worth noting that it’s been left out of the full July releases list).
- If it arrives 147 days like Unexplored It will be available on Netflix on August 26, 2022.
We can go a step further and compare the release schedule with bad boys for life which eventually ended up on Starz in a similar deal. This film premiered in theaters on January 17, 2020. He was then added to Starz 201 days later on August 5, 2020. His expiration date from Starz, which we’ve received, is currently set for February 4, 2022.
bloodshot was added to Starz on August 8, 2020 after it premiered in mid-January 2020 (about 150 days), while if we go back a little further, the Charlie’s Angel Reboot was added in June 2020 after the premiere in November 2019 (223 days).
Once disease is on Netflix, they will then keep the film for 18 months before it departs to Disney properties (Hulu is the most likely destination in this case).
Will get other Netflix regions disease?
At the moment we don’t know if disease will hit Netflix internationally as the deals Sony has with international regions of Netflix are not public knowledge.
What we do know, however, is that many regions of Netflix get Sony movies roughly two years after they’re released in theaters. Men in Black: International For example, Netflix will be released in Canada and the UK in May 2021 after already releasing in June 2019.
Outside of these regions, plenty of Sony films are popping up, but not on a logical timeline, but we’ll keep you posted.
