As Disney scrambles to get everything in order for their release dates many films are being effected. Coronavirus has closed many theaters and that has caused a ripple effect with movie studios and films. Not wanting to hurt the sales of theaters many studios like Sony are opting to push films into next year. Disney has also decided that it is best to push back the release dates of their films including rearranging the entire MCU schedule.
Black Widow – Nov. 6, 2020
The Eternals – Feb. 12, 2021
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – May 7, 2021
Doctor Strange 2 – Nov. 5, 2021
Thor: Love and Thunder – Feb 18, 2021
Black Panther 2 – remains at May 8, 2022
Captain Marvel 2 – July 8, 2022
While we were looking forward to seeing “Black Widow” soon it is for the best that they moved it. If they insist on having a theatrical release that is the best way to do it. It makes sense that they want to keep it in theaters so that once we get the all clear we can go out and see it. It’s kind of a tradition with Marvel enthusiasts that we get to see it on the big screen and it would have been a little disappointing to see it streaming on our TV’s at home.
Stay tuned for more updates on Disney’s programming schedule. This story is developing.
