While the coronavirus pandemic ultimately affected the film industry’s plans in 2021, it looks like the effects of the premiere’s delays may still be a good thing, at least for Marvel Studios.
As fans are well aware, the studio’s films and series slated for this year have seen their release schedules altered several times.
However, that ended up correcting the Phase 04 timeline … As ‘Black Widow’ was due out in April, the events of the feature film would have implications for the plotline of ‘Falcão and the Winter Soldier’, already exhibited at Disney + and unrelated until the moment with Natasha’s film.
The delay of “ Black Widow ” forced Disney + to postpone the premiere of “ Falcão and the Winter Soldier ” and resort to covers, which was a very welcome strategy, as the launch of the series would eventually leave gaps in the plot, which will not be answered until after the premiere of the solo film with Scarlett Johansson.
In addition, the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly explains that certain changes were made to the plot of “WandaVision” due to the pandemic so that the episodes also fit the chronological continuity of Phase 04.
With the series directly linked to the events of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, Marvel Studios has taken care to avoid any errors in dates or details that could spoil its future productions.
Recalling that “The Eternals” and “Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings” will have narratives a little more independent and without major links with the chronology built so far.
The first took place millennia ago until it reaches our days, and rumors indicate that the second will take place between the last five years between the snap of Thanos’ fingers and his defeat in “ Avengers: Game over ”.
So which of these productions are you most excited to watch?
Speaking of which, check out the new schedule for Marvel’s cinema and streaming premieres:
Falcon and the Winter Soldier – Disney +
