The entire world is gripped with coronavirus pandemic and continues to make it difficult for industries to perform. Talking about films, it seems that Marvel fans need to wait more to watch their favorite superhero movies.

As per the latest updates from Disney Studios, Scarlett Johansson upcoming movies Black Widow and ‘Eternals’ have been postponed.

Although, makers have not updated the audience with new release dates of the superhero movies, it is expected that Black Widow will now be released on May 7, 2021.

The shift of the release date of Black Widow has affected the release date of another film titled Eternals which will now release on November 5, 2021 instead of February 12, 2021.



In the meanwhile, Kumail Nanjiani has appreciated Disney Studios for making the right decision.

In the past, the actor also appreciated the performance of Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Kit Harington in ‘Eternals’.

Take a look at what the actor tweeted, “There’s a pandemic. Nothing is more important than health & lives. I can’t tell people to go to a movie theatre until I feel safe going to one. Take care of yourselves. I promise it’ll be worth the wait”.

Looking at the present crisis due to coronavirus pandemic, many other movies including Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Death on the Nile’ and Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’  have also been postponed.

For example, ‘West Side Story’ will now be released on December 10, 2021 instead of its original schedule December 18 2020.


In the same way, another movie titled ‘Death on the Nile’ has been moved from October 23 to December 18. Marvel Studios is presently taking all the action to streamline the schedule of various upcoming movies.

Please note that theatres in the US were shut in the month of March, right after the onset of COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

Although, things are now coming back to normalcy, but most theatres are still closed.
