Black Widow, Wonder Woman, Mulan & more delayed due to Corona Virus? | In this article, you will find all the movies and TV shows that have been delayed or canceled because of the Coronavirus. This virus has infected people all around the globe and due to this, Hollywood might suffer a huge loss if they release their movies at this time. Many big-budget movies are scheduled to release this year like Marvel’s Black Window in April and Dc’s Wonder Woman 1984 in June. Down below is the complete list of all the movies and TV shows that have been canceled or delayed due to the Corona Virus.
The New Mutants & Mulan
Disney has delayed the release of The New Mutants and Mulan. The release date for The New Mutants was 8 April 2020 and this movie has been delayed multiple times so I wonder if we would ever see this movie in theaters.
Mulan is the live adaptation of Disney’s Mulan that was released back in 1998. This movie was supposed to release next week but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Disney has delayed this movie and the new release date has not been confirmed yet.
Bloodshot was released in theaters on 13 March 2020 and grossed around 45$ million worldwide in its first week. On a budget of 50$ million, this movie bombed so hard that the creators decided to release this movie on Digital on 24 March 2020. There were two reasons that this movie bombed. First, the movie got bad reviews and second, the Coronavirus.
Black Widow was scheduled to release in theaters on 24 April 2020 but now it has been delayed and the new release date is not yet confirmed. There were some rumors that Disney might release this movie on its streaming platform Disney+.
The movie was bound to make between 700 million in a billion dollars and they would miss out on a lot of that money by not giving a big theatrical release around the world. And recently they stated that they were committed to theatrical releases implying that they have no plans to release Black Widow early on Disney+.
Fast & Furious 9
Originally Fast and Furious 9 was going to be released in April next month but it just got pushed till next year. It seems so weird that they would wait an entire year to try and release it in theaters.
The Flash TV Show
The flash TV show was just put on hold and all the actors were sent home. They still have a few episodes left to film this season and they might wind up either just delaying episodes to the summer or just canceling the final episodes. This is a problem many TV shows are facing right now and they might wind up cutting a lot of episodes short. All the TV shows are supposed to go back to work and continue filming in a couple of weeks.
The Witcher Season 2
Netflix’s The Witcher season 2 was filming in Europe and they could have just slipped right through the Coronavirus outbreak but one of the cast members was infected so they had to go on a break. Kristofer Hivju was tested positive and he was one of the main casts. People might remember him from Game of Thrones where he played Tormund Giantsbane. Due to this, they had to call a break to keep him from giving it to Henry Cavill and the rest of the crew.
No Time To Die
No Time To Die is the 25th upcoming James Bond film starring Daniel Craig and was supposed to release next month but now it has also been delayed and shifted from April to November.
Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey
We have some good news for the DC fans that Birds Of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn is coming early to Digital video. Birds of Prey was released on 7 February 2020 and grossed over 200$ million worldwide. This film did not perform how Warner Brothers wanted it to and I think releasing this movie on Digital so soon might help it in the long run.
Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Shang Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings is an upcoming Marvel movie and is scheduled to release in theaters on February 12, 2021. The shooting of this movie just had to stop because of the Coronavirus but they said that it’s only for a couple of weeks. The movie will release next year so they have plenty of time to finish shooting and the release date won’t be affected by this outbreak.
Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman 1984 has already been delayed once as it was supposed to release last year and its new release date was scheduled in June of 2020. And now some reports suggest that Warner Brothers might delay the release date again because of the Coronavirus outbreak. They might shift the movie later in the summer just a couple of weeks forward and marketing of this movie should start after a couple of weeks.
Not every single movie is mentioned in this article such as The Invisible Man which was just made available on Digital and The Batman which has stopped shooting for a couple of weeks but it will not be affected as The Batman will release in 2021. The Mandalorian season 2 has finished shooting so it will also not be affected by the Coronavirus. This outbreak has only affected the movies and all the TV shows are still airing.
