Covid-19: Disney delays release of slew of Marvel blockbusters

  • Disney's Jungle Cruise

According to Deadline, Mulan will now be released on July 24.

"With audiences largely unable to attend theatres in the current environment, we are thrilled to offer the premiere of Artemis Fowl on Disney+", said Ricky Strauss, President, Content & Marketing, Disney+.

The film should now be in theaters but was pulled from release once the coronavirus hit.

That date was originally the home for Jungle Cruise, which has now been pushed an entire year, all the way to July 30, 2021.

Vulnerable: Not even the usually bulletproof movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are immune from the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the Scarlett Johansson-starring Black Widow has been bumped from its original May 2020 release slot to November 2020.

Black Panther 2 will stick to its original May 6, 2022, release date.

The next Indiana Jones film, now untitled, was pushed back an entire year to July 2022, while a confirmed "Captain Marvel" film bucked the trend by moving to an earlier slot that same month.

The film, which will once again star franchise lead Harrison Ford, is the first film since the critically-derided Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Two points of interest though: Firstly, there's no mention of Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man 3 to be found anywhere. Reports had surfaced late last week that the co-production's shooting start date had been delayed massively due to the Coronavirus lockdown so its 16 July 2021 release date is now up in the air. The video game-focused Free Guy, which stars Ryan Reynolds playing a suddenly aware NPC, is shifting from July 3 to December 11. We now know that Artemis Fowl, originally slated to open in theaters on May 29th, 2020, will now head straight to Disney+ with no theatrical release.

Curiously, Disney has yet to set new release dates for several titles formerly owned by Fox: The New Mutants, The Personal History of David Copperfield, Antlers, and Woman in the Window.
