The 2020 year in movies has been all but obliterated by the Coronavirus Pandemic. What started as a slow-roll of studio delays for the spring season, has now become a full-blown reshuffling of every major studio's release slate - including Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Thanks to the interconnected nature of the MCU saga, the entire line of Phase 4 films has had to be moved to new release dates, and have now been shuffled all over gagin, thanks to delays with Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man 3.
With so many different delay announcements it may be hard to keep track of which new MCU movies are coming when - but we have the full breakdown for you, below:
Here's Every New Marvel MCU Movie Release Date 2020 - 2023:
Black Widow moves from May to November 6, 2020.
"Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Natasha Romanoff finds herself alone and forced to confront a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Romanoff must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger."
The Eternals gives up its fall 2020 spot to Black Widow, and now opens on February 12, 2021.
"After an unexpected tragedy following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals—an immortal alien race created by the Celestials who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7000 years—reunite to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants."
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
With Eternals taking Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' old spot, the Marvel martial arts action flick moves to May 7, 2021.
Sony and Marvel had to delay the production start of Spider-Man 3 due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, thereby setting back the entire timeline for the threequel's release. Marvel Studios has now slotted Spider-Man 3 in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' slot, with a November 5, 2021 release date.
Thor: Love & Thunder
With Spider-Man 3 now arriving earlier in November 2021, Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok sequel Thor: Love & Thunder has been moved up a week, now arriving on February 11, 2022.
Untitled Marvel Movie
There was a Marvel Studios movie that was slated to arrive on February 18, 2022. It's been permanently pulled from the schedule to make room for Thor 4.
