Disney have announced that the Marvel Cinematic Universe's original Phase Four release schedule is set to be seriously changed-up in the wake of the current global situation.
Last month, Disney made the call to delay the release of Black Widow - which was scheduled to drop in May - due to the current situation. This decision has now had a knock on effect towards the rest of the other impending Phase 4 MCU movies and their original release dates.
Black Widow will now hit theatres on November 6, 2020, the original release date for The Eternals. Therefore, The Eternals will now be dropping February 12, 2021, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now scheduled to open May 7, 2021 - pushed back from its own original February spot. On top of this, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will now be released on November 5, 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder will be arriving on February 28, 2022.
In other MCU news, Rick and Morty writer Jeff Loveness has reportedly been brought in to pen the script for Ant Man 3, per The Hollywood Reporter.
Loveness' deal was apparently finalised before the majority of Hollywood was shut down due to the current global situation.
Shooting for the flick is expected to begin in January 2021.
