Fans have been waiting for an answer as to when Black Widow will be released. As I suspected, there was a reason that it took so long. Variety reports that Black Widow, and pretty much every other MCU movie has shifted dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. Rather than make you weave through a paragraph to see them, here’s a full list of the UPDATED release dates:
- Black Widow – November 6, 2020
- Eternals – February 12, 2021
- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – May 7, 2021
- Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness – November 5, 2021
- Thor: Love & Thunder – February 18, 2022
So pretty much what happened was each movie taking over the date of the one that came after it. Not a bad move by Marvel, which had plenty of dates to spare. We also got a couple of NEW dates to get excited about:
- Black Panther 2 – May 6, 2022
- Captain Marvel 2 – July 8, 2022
When the dust settles, that means we actually get the Captain Marvel sequel a couple of weeks sooner. Hard to argue with that, and a 4th of July weekend box office.
No release date changes were provided for any Disney+ series. Given the uncertainty surrounding the current pandemic, all dates are subject to change. Keep checking back for updates.
