With the pandemic haunting every sector, it is no doubt that Hollywood will be affected too. Now, as per Jason Blum, the founder and film producer of The Blumhouse anticipates that big-budget movies like that of Marvel Studios will not start production until 2021. Well, his opinion is turning into reality as most of the movie shoots are being postponed to either end of 2020 or late 2021.
Above all, only the movies under the small banners will start up shooting by the end of 2020. Although many films have changed their dates of release. It is said that Warner Bros.’ Tenet will get a release on July 17, 2020. But there are chances the dates may get a shift. July seems to bring new possibilities along with it. Let’s see.
Marvel’s All Block Buster Project On Hold.
However, Marvel Studio is striving hard to keep up with the shut down as far as the production is concerned.
Marvel’s latest project The Black Widow was supposed to get a release on May 1, 2020, but had to switch dates to November. It’s not the only scenario; there are other phase 4 movie dates likely to be shifted to 2021.
However, Shang-Chi and The Legend of Ten Rings had to close off its production due to emergencies.
Marvel’s under tremendous pressure because all of its movies are on hold. Due to the incomplete shooting of certain Tv series like WandaVision and Loki, Marvel has to call it off for a while. Still, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are getting a release in August as per predictions.
So, until things don’t get better, there will not be any rolling of Cameras and no Superhero movies at the bay.
Hollywood Biggies Stalls Shooting
Many big-budget movies were about to get a release in 2020 itself. But due to the sudden outburst of the Covid-19, the production and releases of the films got canceled. However, on this, Avika Goldsman, the Screenwriter of Batman Forever and I Am Legend says he’s hoping for the fall.
On the other hand, the producer of The Lego Batman and Godzilla Vs. Kong, Roy Lee, agreed to Blum. He said it’s pretty sure only the small scale production will start with movies by the end of the year. He further added that the movie Shut-In would start running as it’s a single location movie with a small cast.
Also, Simu Liu, the headliner of Marvel for Shang Chi, says, it’s still not time to resume work. No matter how much Liu wants to get back to work. Liu added, “I’m focused on staying home, keeping busy, and giving what I can to ensure that people working on the front lines have the protective equipment they need.”
Are Jason Blum’s Comments about Marvel Solid enough?
After hearing the far cries of the entire Hollywood, it’s clear that it is not time to get back to work. But, do Jason’s predictions about Marvel have any solid grounds? His statements may be true, but though he’s not associated with Marvel, his predictions are not facts. So we should keep in mind that his comments are not credible sources to trust on.
Although he made a sound point that smaller budget movies will begin by the end of 2020. Because they have a small cast and crew whereas Bigger banner movies like Marvel require a lot more people including the cast and crew.
Although movies like Eternals and Black Widow have completed the shoot and slated to release by November 2020. But, the real bummer comes along with Shang Chi, because there’s still a whole deal of filming left for it. The Hollywood world is still relying on assumptions because things may change in the upcoming months. Let’s hope for the best because 2021 still seems a long way to go.
