The coronavirus has broken with a tradition for Marvel Studios, setting a new below in decades


The pandemic coronavirus it is spreading at an alarming rate, with new cases confirmed each day. Therefore, our way of life will continue to be adversely affected at least for a good time. Among the side-effects of the global crisis, the film industry has been greatly impacted, having to reformulate their calendars. And the titles of Marvel Studios, were no exception.

One of the main concerns of the fans was what would happen with the long-awaited film “Black Widow”. Initially scheduled for may 1, the film was in limbo for a few weeks, making the audience wonder if he would see the light by the streaming platforms. However, the company chose to keep it in the rooms, defining the date for November 6.

This date is probably going to sound familiar, given that it was scheduled for the second major premiere of the year of Marvel with “The Eternals”. However, the film, played by Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie, does not hit theaters until February 12, 2021, a date that before he was willing to “Shang Chi”.

This change not only modifies completely the plans around the launch of phase 4, but breaks with a tradition of study. The gap of almost a year and a half between the release of “Avengers: Endgame” and “Black Widow”, mark the longest period that fans have passed without a new movie from Marvel in a decade.

After the double blow of “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” in 2008, in the early days of the study, it took almost two years before that “Iron Man 2” came to the cinemas. Since then, the films from Marvel Studios have been an annual tradition, or even, twice. To know in detail how is the timing of releases you recodamos this other previous article.
