In recent weeks, Cheadle has been active on social media by encouraging fans to vote ahead of November’s election.

Ruffalo, who previously backed Bernie Sanders, has also been active in his support of Biden.

“We must elect champions who will fight for the Green New Deal and push Congress to pass climate action that matches the scale of the problem with the urgency our country’s future demands,” he wrote on Instagram.

The reunion comes after Disney confirmed plans to postpone almost all of its films scheduled for release in 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis – including all its upcoming Marvel titles.

The changes affect the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Phase Four slate of movies, with its first title Black Widow having been pushed back from this November until next May. It was initially due to hit cinemas in May 2020.

Eternals, meanwhile, has had its release date moved from February 2021 to the following November. This will be the first year without a Marvel Studios movie since 2009.
