Well, folks, it’s a sad fact. We certainly won’t be getting any new Marvel movies for a good long time, which means we have to make do with Marvel puns for now.

Marvel Studios made the decision to push back Black Widow, originally slated for April 24, to November 6. This was the original release date for The Eternals, which pushed back the release date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which pushed back…well, you get the idea. You can see for yourself just how house-of-cardsy the whole lineup now is.

There’s no doubt about it: this pandemic sucks harder than Tony and Steve’s falling out. But at least we have one thing that still works: the internet. And the internet has a lot—and I mean a lot—of Marvel jokes and puns.

In order to (hopefully) bring a smile to your face during these dark times, I, your humble Watcher, have scoured the galaxy (read: internet) to bring you earth’s cringiest jokes!

Suit up. I’m bringing the party to you…

Heads up: there may be some minor spoilers here, if you haven’t seen all 7,819 movies in the MCU…
