'Doctor Strange 2,' 'Thor: Love and Thunder' and More Marvel Movies Get New Release Dates Due to Coronavirus
By John Boone
First, the bad news: Marvel is making some adjustments to their Phase 4 slate amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Which means we’re going to have to wait a little longer to see Black Widow and Thor and Doctor Strange on the big screen.
Black Widow, the Scarlett Johansson-starring solo outing previously set to open on May 1, has officially been redated to Nov. 11 -- the same weekend The Eternalswas meant to hit theaters.
As such, The Eternals, which stars Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington and Selma Hayek, is being pushed to Feb. 12, 2021 -- the date originally planted for Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which is now slated to release May 7, 2021.
Now, the good news: The release date for Black Panther 2 remains intact, still set for May 6, 2022. And while announcing its new release schedule, Disney also officially dated the Captain Marvelsequel, with Captain Marvel 2 now opening on July 8, 2022. Higher, further, can it be November yet?
