It was inevitable but Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have decided to postpone the release of Black Widow indefinitely. At this point it is safe to assume that all major film releases will be postponed or delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic currently gripping the world.
The standalone Marvel adventure was initially headed towards an end April release date but now it looks like it may be a while until we see this film in cinemas. Several major films have already been postponed, which may have a drastic effect on the lucrative summer box-office season.
Joining Black Widow on the postpone list are No Time To Die, Mulan, Fast 9, A Quiet Place Part 2 and The New Mutants. In the weeks ahead, expect more delays and postponements hit the entertainment industry as cinemas remained shuttered across the globe.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, sees Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronting the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises.
Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour.
