'A Quiet Place 2,' 'Top Gun 2,' & 'Spider-Man 3' All Have Been Delayed Due to the Pandemic

The movie release calendar keeps getting switched around due to the coronavirus pandemic and three highly anticipated films were just delayed.

Emily Blunt‘s A Quiet Place 2 was originally supposed to hit theaters back in March and then it was delayed to Labor Day weekend when the pandemic began. Now, the film has been pushed back until April 23, 2021.

Tom Cruise‘s Top Gun: Maverick was scheduled to be released on December 23, 2020, but fans will have to wait another six months as the release date has been pushed back to July 2, 2021.

Another major film that has been delayed is Tom Holland‘s third Spider-Man movie, which was previously scheduled for November 5, 2021. Now that Avatar 2 has vacated the December 17, 2021 slot, Spider-Man 3 has moved to that date.

Disney has announced a TON of new release dates for their upcoming movies, including Mulan, the Star Wars franchise, and the four upcoming Avatar sequels.

Zendaya Explains Why Filming 'Spider-Man' Was Very Different Than 'Euphoria'

Zendaya is opening up about working on her projects Spider-Man and Euphoria.

The 23-year-old actress plays MJ in the movies Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home. She also stars as Rue in the HBO series Euphoria, which has one season streaming now.

Zendaya was interviewed by Pose actress MJ Rodriguez for a new feature in Variety.

“We got to travel so much for that last movie. I spent most of my time in London, and when you wake up at three in the morning, I’m literally running outside the Tower of London before it opens. I get to run from these killer drones that nobody can see, because they’re not there yet,” she said.

“It’s massive. It’s very different from Euphoria, where it’s close and you have more time. Whereas on something like Spider-Man, it’s such a huge thing. And there’s so many secrets, and half of the script you can’t even read because there’s too many spoilers for, at the time, Endgame and all these other things,” Zendaya continued. “It’s like, you don’t really know what you’re doing. It’s just so big that you’re like, ‘I’m just going to figure it out as I go.’ And me swinging around, we did a real swing, but they didn’t end up using it. We ended up really just being carried maybe two feet off the ground.”

Spider-Man was one of the first movies that I did outside of Disney Channel. And yeah, I didn’t have much to do in the first movie, but I was so just excited to be doing the movie at all,” Zendaya said about her role. “And I was lucky because they already kind of wanted to re-create the character and turn her into a new version of what I think maybe the original Mary Jane character represented, and just do it in our own way in this Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

“I kind of came into it and there was already on the page a smart, quick, sharp young girl who comes off a bit quirky or offbeat. I have a lot of fun doing it. I like being able to do comedy and things that aren’t so heavy,” she added.

Laura Harrier Originally Thought Zendaya Got Her 'Spider-Man' Role, Praises Marvel for Hiring Two Black Actresses as Leads

Laura Harrier is opening up about the casting process for Spider-Man: Homecoming and how she originally thought her role went to Zendaya.

The 30-year-old actress says that when she heard Zendaya was cast in the movie, she still hadn’t heard back from producers and figured her role went to her.

“After I did my screen test for Spider-Man, before I had heard anything, it came out a few weeks later that Zendaya was going to be cast in it, so I just figured I hadn’t got the job. She must have,” Laura said in a new interview with Porter. “I called my agent and they reassured me I was still in the running.”

Laura added, “I thought it was incredible and ground-breaking of Marvel to put us both in those roles and not to make it about our blackness. We were just girls who went to a school in New York and that’s what New York City looks like; films should reflect that. We had the best time making that movie. Zendaya and I are friends now and I’m really grateful for her.”

Tom Holland & Will Smith Met for the First Time in an Escape Room! (Video)

Tom Holland and Will Smith met in a very cool way – even though they made a whole movie together without ever meeting first!

The Spies in Disguise co-stars revealed that they met doing an escape room while at the premiere of the film at El Capitan Theatre on Wednesday night (December 4).

“It was kind of crazy, you know, because we did an escape room together. I’ve been a big Will Smith fan for a long time, and then all of a sudden I was locked in a room with him, trying to get us to escape. And I don’t know if I wanted to escape, I was enjoying myself in there with Will Smith,” Tom said to Variety.

“It’s really weird that we’re in a movie together that’s coming out. We had never actually been in the same room together. That’s the beauty of modern technology. He did most of his stuff in New York and I did mine in L.A., so I thought it would be a nice way for us to get to know one another, we do an escape room to see if we really have chemistry,” Will said.

“We were having a really good time in there. And it’s funny, when we did get out, it was a little anticlimactic. It was a little sad that our time together was done.”

“I did most of this film in my pajamas. I would just show up in my pajamas, t-shirt and spend seven hours in a recording booth,” Tom added.

Tom also discussed his highly anticipated return to the role of Spider-Man following internal drama, and eventual success.

“Well, I can’t say that I negotiated it back together. I think I was the spark in a conversation that happened between Tom and Bob [Iger] and, you know, I just was really honored that I was able to be a part of that process. And ultimately the outcome was a fantastic one. And the future for Spider-Man is looking brighter than ever.”
