Black Widow Moves to 2021
Black Widow, Death On The Nile, West Side Story, and more are on the move amid more Disney delays
With a second wave of Coronavirus causing further restrictions and still so many cinemas closed in their domestic US market, Disney has decided to delay a host of their most hotly-anticipated movies. Black Widow is the most significant change as the Scarlett Johansson-starring origin story of sorts has shifted from November to May 2021. Due to the interconnected nature of the MCU narrative, Black Widow’s delay has a major impact on Marvel movies further down the line. The schedule reshuffle sees Shang Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings move from May to July 2021 and Eternals from February to November 2021. But it’s sadly not just Marvel movies on the move. Death On The Nile, Kenneth Branagh’s steamy star-studded sequel to Murder On The Orient Express, was expected to arrive in cinemas in a matter of weeks but will now release in December. Even the legendary director Steven Spielberg isn’t safe from the delays as his adaptation of West Side Story that was due this December will now arrive a year later in December 2021. Surprisingly Soul is staying put for now despite fears from industry insiders that the Pixar animation may make its debut on Disney+ instead. The new Ryan Reynolds-led action-comedy Free Guy is also unmoved from its December date but Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ romantic thriller Deep Water moves from November to August 2021.
