Another day, another delay in the theater. After the miserable box office results for Mulan and Tenet, we can't say we are too surprised. Today came the announcement of several MCU movie push-backs, including the highly anticipated Black Widow. The badass female spy film was originally slated for release on May 1st, and was first pushed back in April due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Marvel's Phase 4 premiere now includes 2021-2022:
- May 7, 2021: Black Widow
- July 9, 2021: Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings
- November 5, 2021: The Eternals
- December 17, 2021: Spider-Man 3
- February 11, 2022: Thor: love and thunder
- March 25, 2022: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
- July 8, 2022: Captain Marvel 2
Let's pour one out for our fallen 2020 brothers, shall we? At that point, theaters could go out of business before we have a chance to see another Marvel movie on the big screen. After this second round of delays, theatrical content collapsed everywhere. If you're comfortable going to the theater, the next big features, No Time to Die and Disney Pixars Soul, are slated for late November. If you're not feeling that "adventurous" and feel like quenching your Marvel Universe addiction before 2021, WandaVision is coming to Disney +. You can check out the very cool first trailer here.
