Movie theaters might be opening their doors right now, but there hasn’t been a real firm slate of movie premieres recently.

Film releases have seen a LOT of changes with dates moving around constantly. As Disney and 20th Century Studios line up their upcoming schedule, they’ve been considering the box office’s standing and even the streaming service option. While Disney placed Mulan on Disney+ this month, the film studio is still hoping to have theatrical releases for its other movies soon.

However, there has been another HUGE shift in big name releases over the next year for both Walt Disney Studios and 20th Century Studios according to The Hollywood Reporter. The change that Marvel fans are going to want to pay attention to happens to be another move for Black Widow. While the film was supposed to debut November 6th, 2020, it has been switched to a May 7th, 2021 debut.


But, it’s not just Black Widow in the Marvel universe that’s getting changes. Now that the film based on the female Avenger has been moved, multiple Marvel films will have to be re-arranged as well. Now that means Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is being pushed from its original May 7th, 2021 release to July 9th, 2021, bumping The Eternals to a November 5th, 2021 date.

However, Pixar’s Soul will still be holding onto its November 20th, 2020 debut alongside 20th Century’s Free Guy on December 11th, 2020. Death on the Nile will also still be debuting this year, although there’s a slight move in its release from October 23rd to December 18th instead.

  1. Riiiight. I would expect the major releases to be pushed back another year, and that’s assuming there are any theaters in business to put the films in!
