Why not release everything all at once?  Or at least spaced apart by a month?

I'm beginning to think there will be no new movies.  Ever.

Given the "quality" of movies released since Avengers: Endgame, this is a blessing, not a curse.

Superhero movies, especially.

I'd rather they don't make anything, ever again!

It's funny. I damn near craved the MCU. Every movie I wanted to see because the universe/world building was great. They had me locked down for a decade. Infinity War/Endgame was the culmination of it all.

Now...meh. I'm spent. I'll probably see the Thor one in theaters because Hemsworth is fun, but I don't see myself with the same enthusiasm as I once did.

I expect the Disney+ MCU shows will also suffer a delay, especially since WandaVision was supposed to have a direct tie in with Doctor Strange 2.

I'm ok with that, I'm not spent, I think it will be nice to not have to watch every MCU film to follow a Decade long narrative, and hopefully just enjoy them as smaller set pieces and good movies on their own right.

Ironically, the choice (spoiler?) to set the events of the MCU five years ahead of present time in Endgame, might end up catching up with them a bit anyway due to the current delays.

Oh come on you naysayers! We all know what you'll say when these movies finally hit the theaters:

This here is a set up for someone to say Hollywood doesn't make new movies.

/ seriously though this blows I would gladly pay good money for them just to give us Black Widow now, I needs my MCU fix.

Oh, no, we're going to have to have to live with movies that don't require gatherings of more than ten people at a time now.  Simple practical effects instead of mass-market CGI, writing by small teams of skilled writers instead of writers rooms, no focus groups, and the scenes will have to mostly involve small numbers of actors doing things that express their character, motivations, etc instead of engaging in physical contact.

And Disney isn't going to be able to channel theme park money into creating a monopoly of generic, mutually-indistinguishable movies because no theme park money or blockbusters...

Uh... the horror?

You understand that Hollywood is also shut down because of the 'Rona too, right?
Anything that still needs to finish shooting or needs reshoots has been pushed a year.
Anything that's already been shot, but still needs editing, VFX, and scoring is delayed until at least fall.
Not to mention, studios are going to be very hesitant over the next year or two to throw $100+million dollars at a project while they're wondering if people are going to come back to theaters at all.

The big effects blockbuster days are going to be on hold for a while.

Editing can be done from home. So can FX. Audio can be recorded and looped safely.

A lot if work is happening right now.

I like the guy playing PP / SM, but dislike the SM standalone movies.

Both are watch once and forget.

Once this crap blows over and we all attempt to put on zippered pants I think the cool thing to do would be for theaters to show classic movies. I know some did it already previously, but think about it: smaller/niche audience, prints ready to go for the past 50 years, and a cornucopia of stuff to choose from. Who wouldn't want to see stuff that they've only seen on home video on a big screen? I'd happily plunk down my $10 (yeah, they BETTER drop the price) to see The Exorcist, Casablanca, The Godfather 1-2, and goddamn Citizen Kane. HUGE opportunity here, zero risk for the studios, and I'm sure theaters will be glad to run whatever will sell popcorn to a weird audience who sit 6 seats apart.
I saw Jaws for a single-showing engagement last summer, and the place was PACKED. Everybody cheered/laughed at the appropriate moments, and it was really something in a communal setting.
Leverage those catalogs, studios.

Me too. I'll watch a Dr Strange or GotG movie if it comes out, but I'm over the MCU as a whole.
