Black Widow was supposed to be released last May, but after being pushed back to November thanks to COVID-19, it suffered yet another delay. Now, it’s set to arrive in theaters this May.
However, with January, February, and March now without any major blockbusters, there’s already speculation that April and May will be next to empty out. That doesn’t bode well for the Marvel Studios movie, but many fans have remained optimistic that a Disney+ “Premier Access” release will be considered.
And it sounds like that’s a last resort for Disney.
According to new reports, Black Widow is expected to get the delay treatment should the theater situation not improve. Since it’s the first 2020s film from the franchise that propelled the studio to a now fictional-seeming $11 billion global gross in 2019, another delay before a last-ditch Disney+ release is more likely to occur.
