Marvel Movies Pushback Until 2021 and Further!
Since the COVID pandemic, Hollywood has been shut down along with theaters until the past couple of months. Although Theaters are still not open, just the rebirth of the drive-in. With that said only a few movies have been released and the major blockbusters have been pushed back until 2021 and further. Read on to see what the MCU has done with their upcoming Marvel movies…
CelebnMovies247.com reports Marvel Movies for 2020 were all halted and pushed back with the exception of The New Mutants which had been pushed back for three years.
The New Mutants, which is the last of the 20th Century Fox X-Men films, is currently at drive-ins near you, but many people including we at CelebnMovies247.com are not rushing out to a theater. We want to feel it is safe and right now we feel it’s still too soon.
Like many, we are comfortable with the films releasing on Disney +, Netflix, and Amazon Prime.
This leads us to the MCU and what’s up with Marvel Movies in the future.
Disney has officially moved some of its bigger releases, including Black Widow and West Side Story, to 2021.
The Scarlett Johansson-fronted Marvel movie is now set for theaters on May 7, 2021, and West Side Story has been shifted a year to Dec. 10, 2021. This now makes for a rare year without any big Marvel Studios movie release, though Disney+ still has its WandaVision series on the schedule for this year.
Other shifts include Death on the Nile moving to Dec. 18 of this year; The Empty Man moving up from Dec. 4 to Oct. 23; Eternals moving to Nov. 5, 2021; Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings moving to July 9, 2021; Deep Water moving to Aug. 13, 2021; and The King’s Man moving up a couple of weeks to Feb. 12, 2021.
Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani responded to the new shift in the schedule on Twitter:
Eternals delayed to Nov 5, 2021. Marvel made the right & responsible decision. There’s a pandemic. Nothing is more important than health & lives. I can’t tell ppl to go to a movie theater until I feel safe going to one. Take care of yourselves. I promise it’ll be worth the wait!”
