Disney’s release of “Mulan” on Disney+ was a huge test to see what Disney could do during Covid. Fans and critics alike wondered what Disney would do if the streaming giant succeeded in a non – theatrical release. Many were concerned that “Black Widow,” the next big Marvel movie, would be released on Disney+. However, it seems that concern is unfounded, as Disney just announced it’s pushing back the release date of “Black Widow.”
Instead of being released November 6 this year, it will be released May 7, 2021. This delay impacts the release dates of all Marvel films moving forward. “Eternals” jumps from February 2021 to November 5, 2021. “Shang – Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” moves from May 7, 2021 to July 9, 2021. The move comes with praise from Marvel actors, including Kumail Nanjiani.
Are you relieved “Black Widow” will be a theatrical release?
