2020 will be the first year since 2009 that we won’t get a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Disney completely reshuffled its release calendar this week, which affects upcoming Marvel releases like Black Widow, Eternals and Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

In this video, our staff debates whether this is a good thing for the MCU, or a bad thing. CinemaBlend Events Editor Eric Eisenberg thinks a break from the MCU after the Infinity Saga is actually a good thing, but our Managing Director Sean O’Connell feels a year without momentum isn’t good for the MCU. Senior video producer Jeff McCobb moderates their conversation.
