Marvel fans started the week with a smile after watching the first trailer for WandaVision and confirmation that it will arrive in 2020 at Disney+. Well, it will be the only project related to the Cinematic Universe that will premiere in the remainder of the year after the whole phase 4 is delayed - again.
Black Widow, which was due to premiere at the end of April of the same year, was postponed until November 6 because of the pandemic. The situation caused by the coronavirus causes a new extension and would not reach until 7 May 2021.
In Marvel Studios' Black Widow, an action-packed spy thriller, Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, faces the darkest chapters in her story when a dangerous conspiracy arises related to her past. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to take her down, Natasha must deal with her story as a spy and the wave of destroyed relationships she left behind long before becoming an Avenger.
This obviously causes a domino effect. Marvel's Eternals was previously dated to February 12, 2021. Now, by November 5, 2021. In turn, Shang-Chi and the legend of the 10 rings go from May 7, 2021, to July 9, 2021, ahead of Eternals, which was the one that was to arrive after Black Widow.
This decision coincides with recent statements by IMAX CEO, who believed that Marvel films by 2021 would be delayed again, as well as rumors that Black Widow would also do so after the option to release it directly at Disney+ was ruled out following the poor results of Mulan's remake and Premium Access format.
