The Boys’ Vought International Twitter account has made light of the commercially unsuccessful re-release of Morbius. To promote the show’s fictional superhero movie Dawn of the Seven – a parody of Marvel’s Avengers and other superhero team-up films – Vought International has re-released the movie until June 30 with a limited-time discount code.
“Don’t miss your chance to re-live all the action: use code ITS-MAEVIN-TIME to get a discount on your second ticket until June 30.” the post is captioned. The reference to Queen Maeve’s character is a spin on the “Morbin Time” meme that circulated the internet following the unsuccessful re-release of Morbius. Beneath the caption is a photo of the Seven in front of a green screen, including Homelander, Queen Maeve, A-Train, Starlight, and Black Noir.
“It’s Morbin’ Time” is a catchphrase from the film, inspired by the iconic Power Rangers’ catchphrase “It’s Morphin’ Time.” The line has led to an internet frenzy of memes attributed to the film – with The Boys’ referring to this prevalent pop culture moment in the tweet.
#DawnOfTheSeven is back! Despite still being in theaters, we heard all of your tweets and will be re-releasing the film this week! Don’t miss your chance to re-live all the action: use code ITS-MAEVIN-TIME to get a discount on your second ticket until June 30. pic.twitter.com/Mqh7yhc4T5

Morbius, starring Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, and Tyrese Gibson, was received poorly during its first theatrical release and was considered a commercial flop – sweeping in more than $163.8 million at the box office. See what I did there? Sony re-released the film into 1,000 theatres on June 3, 2022. The film pulled in $300,000, performing poorly the second time.
