Disney have announced a whole range of new release dates for their upcoming films as the pandemic continues. The biggest of which is Black Widow.
Marvel have confirmed that their hotly anticipated next film Black Widow will no longer be releasing in May and will now release on July 9 in cinemas AND on Disney+ with Premier Access.
This means it will now come out over 2 years after the last Marvel film Spider-Man: Far From Home came out in cinemas.
As well as Black Widow, this now shifts more of Marvel’s Phase 4 back a bit including pushing Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings from its old July release date to September 3 now.
Disney’s Cruella will still be released on 28 May but it will be in cinemas as well as on Disney+ with Premier Access instead of just cinemas meaning you’ll have to fork up an extra £20/$30 if you want to watch it at home.
Pixar’s upcoming film Luca will now debut just on Disney+ on June 18 with what appears to be no cinema release and no Premier Access fees, much like Soul did over Christmas.
As well as all these Disney titles being delayed, some of their 20th Century Studios films that they acquired as part of the Fox merger will also be delayed. Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy is now due on August 13. Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman prequel The King’s Man is now pushed back until December 22 and Kenneth Branagh’s Poirot film Death on the Nile isn’t going to be released until February 11 next year.
It’s a shame that so many Disney films have been pushed back yet again, will you be watching them in cinemas if you can or paying to watch them at home on Disney+?
