Marvel's Release Date Shakeup Will Result In The Longest Gap Between MCU Movies In A Decade

We finally got an update on Marvel Studios' plans for its 2020/2021 slate last night, and the release date shakeup will result in the longest gap between two successive MCU movies in over a decade...

We had all been waiting for some kind of announcement relating to the status of Marvel's upcoming movie slate amid the coronavirus delays, and yesterday we finally got confirmation of that big release date shakeup most of us anticipated.

Black Widow will take Eternals' original date of November 6 2020, moving that movie forward to February 12, 2021, kicking off a chain reaction that pushes each successive film into a previously occupied spot. It's an unprecedented move and one that will likely have lasting ramifications for this shared world long past 2021.

In Richard Newby's extensive report on these shakeups, he points out something very interesting.

The last Marvel movie to hit the big screen was Spider-Man: Far From Home last July, which means that when Widow arrives in theaters later this year, it'll mark the longest amount of time audiences have gone without an MCU entry since the gap between 2008's The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2 in 2010.

This situation is obviously far from ideal, but we will come out the other end eventually, and there will be a lot of very exciting movies to catch up on when we do.
