Nearly All of Marvel's Phase Four Movies Get New Release Dates

Studios and companies have delayed or shut down movies, halted television production, and cancelled musical tours.

However, the coronavirus pandemic forced Disney to postpone the release of the Scarlett Johansson film until a date that had yet to be determined until now.

"Black Widow" - which was delayed last month - will now open November 6, 2020, taking the place of fellow Marvel adventure "The Eternals". That's because that's when The Eternals was supposed to open, but because Black Widow has that slot now, not only has The Eternals been pushed back, but the entire MCU release slate has shifted. Eternals moves to Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' old date of February 12, 2021, which itself moves to May 7, 2021.


In addition to Black Widow's new release date setting off a chain reaction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney will also be moving not only the premiere date but the premiere place of Artemis Fowl. Black Widow has a new release date now - and nearly every single Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four movie does as a result as well.

What do you think of the new dates for Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and more?

The Ryan Reynolds action comedy "Free Guy" moves from July 3 to December 11.


Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch has been shifted from its original July 14 release date to October 16. "Untitled Indiana Jones" moves to July 29, 2022.

One other major change is to Artemis Fowl, which Disney meant to release in theaters on Memorial Day, May 25, but was removed from the schedule and will now debut on its streaming site Disney+ at a TBD date. Disney postponed Mulan, Marvel's Black Widow and Fox holdovers New Mutants, Antlers and The Personal History of David Copperfield until further notice.
