The Hollywood Reporter has reported that several Disney and Marvel films have all found new release dates. Black Widow nabs a November spot, previously held by Eternals, Mulan takes a July spot and Jungle Cruise pushes back to 2021.
These were not the only announcements Disney made today. They also confirmed that Artemis Fowl led by Josh Gad will release exclusively on Disney+. This was rumored for a while but now it looks like our intuitions are coming true.
Due to the virus out break, a majority of theaters across the world shut their doors and it forced movie studios to push back several of their films. There is still no word on how long this will last but the quarantine has been pushed back to the end of April.
Throughout this week, we got a lot of new information on which and how many films will all get new release dates; however, Disney was the one that we we’re most eager to hear from.
Disney confirmed that Black Widow will release November 6th, previously held by Eternals, which has now taken Shang-Chi‘s release date of February 21, 2021. Shang-Chi will now release on May 7, 2021, taking that spot away from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Doctor Strange moves to November 5, 2021 and finally Thor: Love and Thunder is slated for February 28, 2022.
Marvel Studios has confirmed that Black Panther 2 still scheduled for May 8, 2020 and Captain Marvel 2 moves up two weeks to July 8, 2022.
As for active Disney films, Jungle Cruise moves to July 20, 2021, previously set to open this December. Mulan nabs July 24, 2020, which had it’s premiere last month. The Untitled Indiana Jones film will be pushed back a year to July 29, 2022.
Other films on the slate, including 20th Century’s Free Guy, which is now set to release December 11, 2020 instead of it’s previous July 3 spot.
Lastly, there are still some films that have not gotten new release dates, which includes New Mutants, Antlers, and Woman in the Window.
No further information has been given, but expect more announcements in the upcoming weeks.
