Well, it’s official; Black Widow is coming out on July 9 simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access. The model must be doing well with Raya and the Last Dragon considering that Disney has decided to move forward with this approach for Marvel Studios’ upcoming movie.
With Black Widow being delayed yet again, we’ve also got a new date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which is now slated for a September 3 release. And then just two months after that we’ll apparently be getting Eternals on November 5 and a month later Spider-Man 3 on December 17 if everything goes according to plan.
If there was ever a time for MCU fatigue that would be now with at least three Marvel Disney+ series still set to debut (Loki, What If…?, and Hawkeye) and now four movies to watch in the last five months of the year. Yeah, it’s a bit excessive but as a Marvel fan I am here for all of it.
And then there was even more Disney news. Cruella, the origin story of Disney’s evilest villain, Cruella de Vil, is now simultaneously coming out on May 28 in theaters and on Disney+. I am very excited to see this movie and how Emma Stone can recreate this classic character in her youth. However, I hope the movie keeps her unapologetically evil and doesn’t try to humanize her too much to the point where we actually see her as a bit of a hero, not the terrifying lady that we know in 101 Dalmatians. But I will definitely be watching this via Premier Access because I’m just not that invested to see this in theaters.
And then on June 18, one week after the Loki premiere, Disney/Pixar’s newest movie, Luca will be coming to Disney+ free of charge. Yay!
All in all, Disney is going to bring plenty of smiles to our faces this year.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
