Black Widow has now been officially delayed, just weeks out from it’s planned May 1st release. The news comes soon after the closure of many cinema and theatres across USA and a lot of the world. Black Widow was being geared up in the past few weeks, it was looking like it would not be affected by the recent COVID-19 pandemic. But the news came yesterday. No word on when Black Widow will release.
With the release of Disney+ coming Ireland and to some other European territories on March 24th, India on March 26th and a number of other European countries like Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Portugal & Sweden in May, Disney may cut its loses and release it directly to the Disney+ service. Now although this is not conformed, with the increase in the potential subscribers, it may be an even bigger incentive to join the video-on-demand service. Marvel’s roadmap is complex, with many future movies and TV shows setting-up and tying in with future releases.
