It’s no shocker that the COVID-19 pandemic caused Marvel Studios to halt production. Meaning projects like Black Widow, Loki, WandaVision, and others won’t be able to hit their initial release window. With projects varying in stages of production, MCU fans are curious to know when will Marvel Studios pick back where they left off. Unfortunately, it seems higher-ups at Disney aren’t too sure of when things will be fully operational.
During a Disney investor quarterly call, CEO Bob Chapek touched on the return of Marvel projects going back into production. Chances are you won’t like his answer, but here’s what Chapek said:
To be fair, that is an extremely responsible action to ensure the safety of not only cast and crew but also to those employed via Disney theme parks. It just pains the consumers who subscribed to Disney Plus and fans who have been patiently waiting for the next entry in the MCU. All in all, patience is key here and the last thing anybody wants is for someone to be impacted by the Coronavirus.
Black Widow is still slated to release November 6th, 2020. For more awesome Marvel focused content, stay posted here at the MCU Initiative.
