Disney announced several films that had originally been scheduled for late 2020 release, including Black Widow and West Side Story, will now be pushed back until 2021. The studio said Marvel movie Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson as the titular hero, is being pushed back from Nov. 6 until May 7, 2021. The Eternals, starring Angelina Jolie, is being delayed from Feb. 12, 2021, until Nov. 5 of that year. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Marvel’s first movie led by an Asian hero, will be released July 7 of next year, instead of the previously announced May 7.
Deep Water, starring Ben Affleck, is being postponed from Nov. 12 until Aug. 13 of next year; and Steven Spielberg’s remake of musical West Side Story is being delayed an entire year from Dec. 18, 2020, to Dec. 10, 2021.
These changes come as movie theaters in major cities, including New York and Los Angeles, remain closed — despite 3/4 of the nation’s movie theaters having been reopened.
