The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on the entertainment industry and therefore on Marvel Studios’ plans.
Disney recently announced new postponements for MCU films. Those affected were: Black Widow, Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Black Widow, after an initial postponement, would hit theaters in October, but has now been postponed again to May 2021.
Meanwhile, Eternos moved from February 2021 to November of the same year. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will debut in July 2021 instead of May.
So far, it is not known whether these postponements will have consequences for other Marvel films, such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, by the way, seems to be the most disappointing film when it comes to postponement. Marvel fans are particularly excited about the return of the character experienced by Benedict Cumberbatch.
On Reddit, MCU fans debated their disappointment at the delay for Doctor Strange’s debut in the Multiverse of Madness.
“Of all the delays in the MCU caused by the coronavirus pandemic, I am more upset to have to wait for the Doctor Strange sequence. Especially in being able to see the dynamics of Stephen and Wanda ”, wrote an internet user.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was originally postponed from May 2021 to November of the same year, and was later postponed again to March 2022.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be directed by Sam Raimi. The filmmaker became known for leading the classic Spider-Man trilogy, starring Tobey Maguire.
As mentioned earlier, Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit theaters in March 2022 (if not postponed).
