How the Pandemic Changed Releases of Superhero Movies

This year the coronavirus pandemic has changed lots of things, including movies. Most movies have been delayed in production or release. The movies that have been released were via subscription or didn’t have much of a reaction since not many people have been going into movie theaters. 

There was hope for some of the Marvel movies after Disney released Mulan via subscription September 4, 2020, on Disney Plus, but the release dates have just been pushed back. Marvel’s “The New Mutants” was released in theaters August 28, 2020, but didn’t have much of a boom since some movie theaters around the world remain closed and most people don’t want to go to theaters. 

Marvel’s “Black Widow” was pushed back from May 2020 to May 7, 2021. Shortly after the pandemic began, Disney announced that the movie would be released in November of 2020, but that date ended up changing.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings” is scheduled for release July 9, 2021. “The Eternals” is also supposed to be released November 5, 2021.

An untitled Spider-Man movie is expected to be released in 2021 as well.

“Thor Love and Thunder” is still scheduled to release in February of 2022.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is supposed to be released March 25, 2022. There are several other movies in development such as “Black Panther 2,” “Captain Marvel 2,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” 

DC’s “Wonder Woman 1984″ has been pushed back to December 25, 2020.

The second “Suicide Squad” movie will release August 6, 2021. “Black Adam,” a spinoff movie of “Shazam!,” will also be released in 2021 but on December 22. “The Batman” is now scheduled to release March 4, 2022. “The Flash” will release later in 2022 on November 4, and “Shazam! 2″ will be released on June 2, 2023. 

Marvel and DC fans will have to wait even longer for the anticipated movies to be released, but release dates are constantly changing and some movies might be available at home.
