Trailer: Marvel Studios' Black Widow

With every high-profile film project delayed due to coronavirus, cinemagoers are going to have to wait to watch some of the year’s biggest releases.

It’s now been revealed this will have a knock-on effect in Marvel’s case – almost every planned outing for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fourth phase has been shifted back by several months.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Black Widow – which was originally scheduled to be released on 1 May – will now take The Eternals’ release date of 6 November.

The Eternals, the studio’s next foray into the cosmic side of proceedings, will be released in March 2021 instead, meaning fans will have to wait an extra four months for Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and Salma Hayek’s addition to the MCU.

Other films to be affected by the delays are Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

The only release whose date has not been affected is Black Panther 2.

Marvel also used the opportunity to formally announce a sequel to Captain Marvel, which will see Brie Larson return as Carol Danvers.

Find the full list of new release dates below:

Black Widow – 6 November 2020

The Eternals – 12 February 2021

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten-Rings – 7 May 2021

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – 5 November 2021

Thor: Love and Thunder – 28 February 2022

Black Panther 2 – 8 May 2022

Captain Marvel 2 – 8 July 2022
