It’s now been revealed that Marvel Studios and Disney have opted to push Black Widow’s release date back indefinitely due to Coronavirus.
According to Variety, Disney and Marvel’s upcoming superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson will no longer be released on May 1st.
It was also revealed that Disney opted to delay the release of the Dev Patel-led drama The Personal History of David Copperfield and Amy Adams’ The Woman in the Window.
Those two movies were supposed to be released on May 8th and April 15th, respectively.
It’s still not entirely clear whether these movies will be released at all or whether they’ll put them on Disney Plus.
Black Widow’s release date has been pushed back
As for Black Widow, Disney didn’t reveal a new release date for the movie.
Before this was announced, Disney had already pulled Mulan, The New Mutants and Antlers.
It’s really going to be a strange time for moviegoers as we wait and see what these studios decide to do moving forward.
They might end up doing what Universal Studios did and release their latest movies on-demand rather than in cinemas.
This could lead to huge subscription numbers on Disney Plus, especially with its European release imminent.
