In an alternate reality where that one bat in Wuhan China zigged left instead of right, we’d be going to see the new Black Widow movie on May 1st, 2020. Alas, that’s not how things turned out. In this reality, where everything has been turned inside out, we’ll have to wait until November 6th of this year to see Black Widow.

But that’s when The Eternals was originally scheduled to open, so that gets pushed back, and so on and so forth for all the MCU Phase 4 release dates.

Fingers crossed that by November 2020 there’s enough normality — whatever that is — that we can feel comfortable in a packed theater watching Black Widow on opening night.

Oh right — there’s an election the day before Black Widow releases. Whatever happens, nothing will be normal.
