Eternals will release on November 5, 2021. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will release on July 9, 2021. The films have been subjected to several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic which left theaters having their doors closed for much of 2020, reopening in most of the country recently to lackluster box office numbers. This ultimately delays Black Widow and Eternals a full year by comparison to their original release dates." -Brandon Davis
