Miss Romanoff and her other MCU Phase 4 brethren will now be gracing movie theatres starting mid-2021 instead of November 6th 2020.
Another day, another theatrical delay. After the abysmal box office results for both Mulan and Tenet, we can’t say we’re too surprised. Today brought the announcement of multiple MCU film push-backs, including the widely anticipated Black Widow. The badass female-spy film was originally slated for a May 1st release, and was first pushed back in April due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Marvel’s Phase 4 premiere line-up now spans 2021-2022:
- May 7, 2021: Black Widow
- July 9, 2021: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
- Nov. 5, 2021: The Eternals
- Dec. 17, 2021: Spider-Man 3
- Feb. 11, 2022: Thor: Love and Thunder
- Mar. 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 this point, theaters may go out of business before we have any chance of seeing another Marvel film on the big screen; after this second round of delays, theater shares everywhere plummeted. If you do feel comfortable heading out to a theater, the next big features, No Time to Die and Disney Pixar’s Soul, are slated for late November. If you don’t feel comfortable being so “adventurous,” and are itching to feed your Marvel Universe addiction before 2021, WandaVision is coming to Disney+.
