The rapidly spreading COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has caused many interruptions in the entertaining industry. Black Widow (starring Scarlett Johannson) is the latest cinema release to be pushed back.
This decision has come in the face of the ever-growing pandemic that has gripped the world. Cinemas are closing all around the world, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Marvel will push their next big release back.
Disney & Marvel have some huge prospects lined-up up for 2020, which was, and probably still will, start with Black Widow. It is unknown how this films delayed release will affect other movies and Disney + shows that were scheduled to come out this year.
Since their 2019 launch of Disney+, Disney has copped criticism for the lack of adult-focused content on the platform. There’s an opportunity for the company to potentially use Black Widow as a marketing tool to grow their subscriptions Considering the huge amount of people that will be on TV streaming services in the coming months, this idea could make a lot of sense for both Disney and Marvel, however, at this stage it still remains highly unlikely.
We will be updating you as soon as we have more information about Black Widow’s release date. In the meantime check out the trailer for what is sure to be an awesome MCU instalment.
