Disney Postpones ‘Black Widow’, ‘Eternals’ and More


Disney has apparently just postponed ‘Black Widow’ to 2021, which in turn has pushed back several other Disney/ Fox releases in the process. Movies like  “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Eternals” will be coming out later in 2021.

Here’s what the new reportedly are:

‘Black Widow’ will now open on May 7, 2021

‘Death on the Nile’ will now open on December 19, 2021

‘West Side Story’ will now open on December 10, 2021.

‘Eternals’ will now open on November 5, 2021.

‘Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will now open on July 9, 2021.

Here is the rest of the slate according to Variety:

Below is Disney’s upcoming slate:

“Soul” — Nov. 20

“Free Guy” — Dec. 11

“Death on the Nile” — Dec. 18
