Disney Announces New Movie Releases Dates Shifting Marvel’s Plans

With COVID-19 closing down theaters, Disney has been forced to shift the release dates of numerous films, impacting the future of Marvel Studios as well.

The movie studio has announced that Black Widow will now arrive on November 6, 2020, while The Eternals will be released on February 12, 2021.

What’s interesting is this signals Disney’s expectations that things will be somewhat back to normal in November. The earliest film on their new release schedule is in June 2020 and many areas haven’t predicted issues into May.

It is also pulling the film Artemis Fowl from theaters and it will debut exclusively on Disney+ in the future.

More “comic” films under the Disney umbrella have been pushed. The King’s Man which is a 20th Century Studios film will release in September 2020. That film is a spin-off of Kingsman based on the comic series. Empty Man, another 20th Century Studios film based on the BOOM! Studios‘ series, will be released on August 7, 2020.

Below are all of the named comic related releases below:

  • Empty Man (20th Century Studios)—August 7, 2020

Horror sensation Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, Bone Parish)  returns to the world of Empty Man with artist Jesús Hervás (Lucas Stand, Clive Barker’s Hellraiser) in this new ongoing series. 

The nation is in the grip of a terrible pandemic. The so-called Empty Man disease causes insanity and violence. Government quarantines are mandatory. 

One of the afflicted is Melissa Kerry, and the next step should be to quarantine her—but those who enter quarantine are never seen again. Melissa’s family won’t let that happen. All they have to do is care for her, keep her worsening condition a secret—and they’ll do anything, trust anyone, to keep her safe.

Recurrence is the second installment in The Empty Man franchise and explores the psychological horror of a family member in decline, and the depths one will go to protect those they love.
