Disney’s ‘Black Widow’ is to shift their release date because of the corona-virus pandemic.
The Release Date Had To Be Pushed
The Marvel superhero adventure, which stars Scarlett Johansson, was made ready to hit the theatres on May 1. The studio has also pulled back the Dev Patel-led drama ‘The Personal History Of David Copperfield.’ Even the release of The Woman in The Windows was supposed to be on April 15.
Now it is unclear that when any of the films will be released. Black Widow is not a standalone film. The movie is also a part of the MCU, an expansive interconnected collection of superhero films.
Black Widow may be taking a step back in time; the movie takes place between the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and Avengers: Infinity War. The movie Black Widow could also have a ‘cascading effect’ on the rest of the MCU releases. Many of the Marvel movies and series have been delayed.
Shutdowns Affect The Monetary Benefit Of The Productions
The theatres across North America are not exactly shuttered yet. But the exhibitors expect to shut all those down soon. The novel virus greatly impacts the multiplexes in China, Japan, Italy and some other areas. This has been causing a lot of problems.
While the exact budget for the movie ‘Black Widow’ has not been revealed yet by the officials, the novel virus has been affecting the economic market so much due to shutdowns. The Marvel movies cost somewhere between 150 million to 200 million dollars, which is quite a high amount.
The Cast For The Movie Black Widow
In addition to Scarlett, the movie also stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour, William Hurt, Ray Winstone and Rachel Weisz. Cate Shortland has directed the movie.
Disney+ Will Be Making A Good Move
Disney will be waiting for the theatres around the world to open again. As though they have expected that they will be facing a huge loss if they take any kind of action at the moment when everything is shut down.
