The number is increasing steadily

The flood of films and series postponed by the pandemic has not stopped this week either. One of the many affected movies this week is "Thor: Love and Thunder", which is now scheduled to be released on 11.02.2022 instead of end of 2021. But at least one person can get something good out of the whole thing, namely Taika Waititi. He explains to Total Film that they are still writing Thor: Love and Thunder and that the virus-related delay makes the script even better.

But this is by far not the case for all film projects that are currently suffering from the pandemic. Almost all major film studios have published a long list of films and series this week, which cannot keep the originally planned release date and have been postponed or even moved forward.At Sony, the film "Connected", which is now scheduled to be released on 23.10.2020, is one of the films that is affected. The "Uncharted" film will be released on 16.07.2021, "Spider-Man: A New Universe 2" on 07.10.2021 and "Hotel Transylvania 4" will be scheduled a bit earlier on 06.08.2021. Even the still nameless "Spider- Man" film, which was planned for July 2021, will now be released a few months later, at the beginning of November 2021.

Many Marvel films are also affected by changes. Black Widow is now scheduled to be the only MCU movie to be released this year on October 29, 2020, while "Shang-Chi" is scheduled to be released on April 30, 2021. Fans of "Doctor Strange" will have to be patient for a little longer, as it will be postponed by five months to March 25, 2022. A yet unknown MCU adventure was dated to October 7th, 2022, which could be "Guardians Of The Galaxy" or "Ant-Man 3".

Warner Bros. most anticipated release "The Batman" has also been postponed for a few months, and will now be released on !st of October, 2021. The two Paramount movies "Mission Impossible 7 + 8" will be released in November 2021 and 2022 respectively.
