This is why everything is locked tight to prevent the spread of the virus. But 2021 is even better, with vaccines coming and cinemas opening up our favorite films once again. During this time, the last time we had a Marvel project with us was in 2019, and as such, the excitement when Wanda Vision was released on Disney Plus sent waves.
To date, the Marvel production company has decided on their list of films and shows that are pending for the coming months, and we are very happy. Everyone knows how patient we are all waiting for the release of Black Widow. The first time the teaser came out in 2019 left us all on the verge of anticipation to see what the film would look like. But unfortunately this did not happen, but now Marvel has confirmed the Black Widow release date in July 2021.

That’s because Shang Chi was lined up for release in July 2021, but now that Black Widow has moved to that duration, the show will have to move on. So, Shang Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings will be released on September 3, 2021. On the other hand, Black Widow’s release date is scheduled for July 9, 2021.
