The fate of all movie productions has been in limbo ever since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic. In the case of Disney’s Marvel Studios, several big-budget live-action projects such as The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, and Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings were all put on hold. But efforts to resume work at the mouse house has not gone unnoticed as it prepares to reopen its Shanghai Park later this month. It has gotten some curious if production could resume on the film/TV side but the studio doesn’t seem to have an exact date fixed yet.
During the recent Disney investors quarterly call, The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Chapek addressed the exact question on when the said Marvel films will resume filming. “In terms of large scale production, we’re gonna go through the same process as we do our theme parks…we’re going to be responsible in terms of how we put our own employees and other filmmakers that are partners with us,” Chapek said. “We’ve got no projections on exactly when we can do that.”
Disney’s current safety measures for workers include wearing masks and following social distancing practices. The Disney Parks current plan is to open with a limited capacity and strictly maintaining protocols. Its possible a similar strategy could be applied on the filmmaking side. Moreover, the pandemic has also impacted the release dates of other completed MCU titles namely Black Widow and The Eternals. Disney will also have to observe audiences’ reaction to the reopening of theaters and if their films could release with a potential profit margin at the box office.
The changed release date schedule for Black Widow is November 6th. Followed by Eternals on February 12, 2021. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on May 5 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on November 5, 2021.
