I don't think there's much risk in waiting until next summer. I think it's the smartest move for everyone involved.
This shouldn't take over the conversation but everyone should listen to this episode of this podcast. Some governments are fucking things up royally (cough my country the US cough) but scientists have been making amazing strides this entire time. The entire scientific community is facing this one problem and there's light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines and treatments are much farther along than people realize and by the end of the summer season the world will likely know the names of several good vaccine treatment candidates with over 50% success. The Oxford trials sound especially promising having been given to 11,000 people and shown no averse reactions yet. The first generation vaccines are likely going to be start being made available before the end of 2020 with more successful generations of vaccines and treatment to follow in short succession.
I recommend everyone give this episode a listen, it's full of good news, and then maybe the discussion can be continued somewhere else on the site.
Back on topic:
I also still feel while the Eva characters are not the official mascots of the ceremony, Khara/Toho/Toei have or want some kind of marketing deal/synergy with the Tokyo Olympics that they want to profit off of - the Evangelion 2020 logo is pretty much a copy of the Tokyo 2020 logo - and the release of the film will be moved to around the time of the games. I'm thinking of April to June of 2021. But I could be wrong of course. It's just a thought.
