As more and more movies become postponed or even outright cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, two more big hitters have been pushed back from their original release dates.
First up, the Nia DaCosta-directed, Jordan Peele-produced Candyman has been removed from its planned June 12th release. Instead, that spiritual sequel has tentatively been pencilled in for September 25th.
Elsewhere, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen another one of its pictures delayed due to the ongoing uncertainty across the globe. Much like Black Widow was postponed, now so too is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Rather than May 7th, 2021, this Sam Raimi-helmed Doctor Strange sequel will be conjured to the silver screen on November 5th, 2021.
Already, we’ve seen the likes of A Quiet Place II, The Matrix 4, and Wonder Woman 1984 delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and we’re sure that Candyman and Doctor Strange 2 won’t be the last movies affected by this.
