With the initial release of May 1st, 2020, the release date for Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ has been pushed forward. Other films have been delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Focusing on getting people to stay home, cinemas across the United States have closed. ‘Black Widow’ isn’t the only Disney film suffering. The live-adaptation of 1998’s ‘Mulan’ for 2020 has been delayed as well. Disney’s history with fan-favorited films as well as non-favorable films had audiences awaiting something new and something good. With the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone must wait.

The list of delayed or cancelled films include the final installment of the James Bond era ‘No Time To Die’, ‘A Quiet Place II’, and ‘Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway’. Sequels and remakes were planned given the good reception from fans. Film after film has either stopped production mid-way or it hasn’t begun. For those films that were supposed to start production, perhaps a few touch-ups could be done at this time. For other films, only time will tell when they will be up and running once again.

In addition, there are television shows on Disney+ that have been postponed. The shows had filming suspended. Cast and crew members are told to stay home until things are back in business. If people are looking for superhero films, they can still watch on Disney+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. New films are to look forward to although the old films remind everyone why they are loved in the first place. MCU will be experiencing delays for a while, but that doesn’t mean people should turn away from it.

While ‘Black Widow’ is on the waiting list, movie enthusiasts have not stopped with creating theories and speculations about the movie. As the movie plot centers Natasha Romanoff’s backstory, it would be a bummer to miss out on the movie. If all goes well, the new release date may give an opportunity for individuals to gather for the film’s release. Because the Coronavirus has forced everyone to be in isolation, further release dates for films can give an excuse for groups to spend time and watch them.

MCU films to watch are ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ (2018), ‘Black Panther’ (2018), or ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ (2018). The delays might make it seem like it’s the end of the world, although this leaves time for improvement. The increased time to begin or continue production could provide ideas to add onto development. MCU isn’t the only superhero universe that is affected as the DCEU joined the fun of delayed productions as well. All superheroes are given a break so they can come back stronger than ever.
