Disney Has Set New Release Dates For Black Widow, Mulan And More

Other studios are still figuring things out. As the virus spread across the globe, major films set for release in April and May were pulled left and right, including "F9", and "No Time to Die". That means they've done everything from shifting a film to a full year ahead (Fast 9) to rescheduling in the hope of life returning to normal sooner rather than later (Wonder Woman 1984). Many studios delayed their film releases, though apparently Disney is confident enough in the reopening of the theaters that the company has laid out a schedule for its biggest anticipated releases.

"Black Widow", starring Scarlett Johansson, had been scheduled to kick off the summer blockbuster season, traditionally Hollywood's most lucrative period at theaters, on May 1. Instead, Disney said it will now open November 6. That was going to be The Eternals' date, so that moves to February 12.

In addition to Black Widow's new release date setting off a chain reaction in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney will also be moving not only the premiere date but the premiere place of Artemis Fowl. In addition, Marvel's entire 2021 and 2022 original slate have also been changed with: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings moving to May 7, 2021; Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness to November 5, 2021; Thor: Love And Thunder to February 18, 2022; and Captain Marvel 2 has now been set to July 8, 2022.

New Payroll Protection Program for Small Business
On Friday, April 3, 2020, the Small Business Administration lenders will be launching the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP"). She shed some light with some details on the contents of this bill and how it can help local small businesses.

The live-action remake of "Mulan" has been pushed to July 24, 2020, opening on the date previously occupied by "Jungle Cruise". That, in turn, bumps Jungle Cruise a whole year to July 30, 2021.

The Ryan Reynolds-Taika Waititi video game comedy Free Guy moves from this July to December 11. "Untitled Indiana Jones" moves to July 29, 2022. It took decades to mount the fourth movie, despite Harrison Ford's reliable interest in reprising the role. If they manage to start filming, it won't come out until summer 2022.
