Due to the spread of COVID-19 many studios have had to adjust production and release dates for several of their upcoming films. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has announced new release dates for its Phase 4 lineup of Marvel Studios movies.
While it was already announced that Marvel Studios had shut down production on nearly all projects, it was not revealed if any release dates would be pushed back. However, it seems the studio has decided to shift its film slate to accommodate the changes in production.
It was already announced that this year’s Black Widow had its release date pulled, but now fans finally have a date to look forward to. Scarlett Johansson’s first solo outing as Natasha Romanoff now occupies Eternals release date of Nov. 6, 2020.
Speaking of Eternals, Chloé Zhao’s massive ensemble has moved to next year and will release in theaters on Feb. 12, 2021.
After that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will release on May 7, 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters Nov. 5, 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled for Feb. 18, 2022. Unlike the other releases, Black Panther 2 will retain its release date and is still scheduled for May 8, 2022.
Additionally, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel 2 is moving up two weeks to July 8, 2022.
It is exciting to finally have some concrete dates for Marvel’s upcoming slate as it was rumored some changes would occur to Phase 4’s slate of films. While some fans may be upset, they have to wait longer to see the next entries in the MCU; the move is ultimately good for the studio given the changes in production.
