(Marvel Studios reportedly shuts down temporarily)

Hopefully, this chatter will turn out to be false, but right now there is talk making the rounds that Marvel Studios is shutting down production and releasing the crews associated with each project due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The studio has already paused production on the feature, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings and the Disney+ limited series, Loki.

According to Comic Book Movie who is using fellow comic site, Murphy’s Mulitiverse as a source, Marvel has reportedly informed its crews on everything from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to WandaVision no longer seems “realistic,” and productions will only resume “when the global health environment allows.”

They were also reportedly notified that, as of April 3rd, they will no longer be employed on their particular project.”

Shang-Chi is currently the only feature being shot, but the film meeting its planned February 2021 release date looks doubtful. We also don’t know how much work is left to be done on Eternals, while pre-production on 2021 films like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man 3 could also be hit.

It’s important to note that there is no official statement from Marvel yet.

Marvel’s Black Widow’s release date has also been delayed. Stay tuned…
