Marvel Delays ‘Black Widow’, ‘Eternals’ & ‘Shang-Chi’ To Late 2021
Marvel Studios has issued another major reshuffling of its release calendar. According to a press release, Black Widow, Eternals, and Shang-Chi have been pushed to late 2021.
The long-awaited solo film starring Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff has held onto its Nov. 6 release date for some time now, but it seems Disney has decided this is too early for consumers to return to theaters. The movie has now been delayed to May 7, 2021.
This spot was previously held by Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Now Simu Liu’s first outing in the MCU will premiere July 9, 2021.
Lastly, Eternals has been pushed back from its Feb 12, 2021 release date to Nov. 5, 2021. This now puts the film after the previously mentioned Shang-Chi.
These changes to the release calendar reflect the continuing changes many studios are facing amid the pandemic. Films that have chosen to release in theaters such as Tenet, have been met with drastically reduced box office returns. Similarly, movies released on streaming services, ie, Mulan, did not meet the expectations of executives.
