Marvel Studios announced release dates for its next 10 movies Monday, laying out a menu geared at satisfying superhero fans' pent-up demand well into 2023.
First on the list is "Black Widow," a movie that started filming about two years ago. The Scarlett Johansson flick, originally set for release May 1, 2020, has seen its date moved multiple times thanks to COVID-19 pandemic closures. It was pushed to Nov. 6, 2020, and then to May 7, this coming Friday. In March, the studio announced a July 9 debut, which appears to have stuck.
"Eternals," directed by Oscar winner Chloé Zhao, was originally set to launch Nov. 6, 2020, but now will open almost a year later, this coming Nov. 5.
"Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" moves almost 11 months into the future, while "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" creeps ahead by eight months. "Thor: Love and Thunder" scoots forward only six months.
Fans of Marvel's post-credits sequences also got a nod: The company alluded graphically to the future release of its "Fantastic Four" film, to be directed by Jon Watts. No specific date was named.
