Hollywood has ceased all production and distribution globally in response to the deadly COVID-19 outbreak, consequently affecting the meticulous schedule of all Disney movies. The situation has put MCU fans in a fix, who were eagerly anticipating the release of several Marvel movies this year. But without contributing to any conundrums, MCU has quickly announced the revised dates of its upcoming presentations, including Black Widow, The Eternals, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
MCU’s Black Widow To Premiere On November 6th
MCU’s big-ticket prequel starring Scarlett Johansson was set for an early May release. But now, the media franchise has pushed it to premiere on November 6th. Initially, Marvel’s other ambitious project, ‘The Eternals’ was supposed to have its cinematic opening on November 6th. But with the rescheduling in place, the studios have displaced it to a later date, allowing for the accommodation of Black Widow. This has set off a chain reaction pushing just about every other Marvel movie back.
