Which big-screen releases have slipped from 2020 into 2021?

With the current coronavirus pandemic across the globe, many studios and film projects have either been put on hold or reshuffled to give movie-goers their fix at a later stage. While 2020 was lining up to be a monster year for movies, we’ll have to wait a little longer to see these 5 blockbusters now slated for 2021.

Fast & Furious 9

Nothing seemed like it could slow down the continual roll out of the Fast & Furious franchise movies, but alas, Fast & Furious 9, which was set to be released in May has now been delayed until April 2021. We’ll have to wait a fair bit longer to see Vin Diesel go head-to-head with John Cena in the next instalment in the high-octane franchise.

Venom 2

Originally supposed to release in October, Andy Serkis’ Venom sequel will hit cinemas in June 2021. Officially titled, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the follow-up will see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock going up against Woody Harrelson’s Carnage, another iconic symbiote villain from the Spider-Man universe.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Like Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Sony’s decision to shift its entire slate of theatrical releases has also effected Jason Reitman’s small town-set Ghostbusters resurrection. The film, which stars Paul Rudd, is pushed from July 2020 to March 2021.


Another standalone supervillain outing has been halted, as Jared Leto’s interesting-looking Morbius origin film has been delayed from July 2020 to March 2021. We’ll have to wait a little longer to see how this vampiric foe fits into the overarching Sony/Marvel Spider-Man universe.

Morbius 1

The Eternals

Marvel’s next big star-studded entry into the MCU has seen delayed from November 2020 to February 2021, which will push all the other Marvel-related movies (Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange 2, and Spider-Man 3, for example) further into 2021 and 2022.
