Disney has revealed that the standalone movie about Black Widow won’t be released in early November as initially planned. Instead, the blockbuster will be released next summer.

Black Widow Delayed

The international media has reported that Marvel Studios’ spy thriller Black Widow has officially changed its release date. If it was scheduled to hit wide screens on November 06 (according to the latest announcement), Scarlett Johansson’s standalone movie will be available at the theatre since May 07, 2021.

There have been some rumors about Disney and Marvel Studios’ decision to postpone Black Widow for several weeks. Accordingly, the reason behind it is supposedly because there has been no sign to recover in the cinematic market in North America.

While theatres in both New York and Los Angeles are still frozen due to the COVID-19 pandemic and only about 70% of the cinema cluster come back to their normal operation, director Christopher Nolan’s Tenet hasn’t even collected $40 million after more than two weeks of its release on the world’s largest cinematic market.

Black Widow plays a vital role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and therefore, the following movies of this superhero trademark have no choice but to change their release dates. It worth mentioning that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Rings will be the MCU movie right after Black Widow, instead of Eternals. The movie about character Shang-Chi is expected to release on July 09, 2021.

Eternals is also shifted to November 05, 2021 - one year later than the first plan before the filmmakers decided to move to February next year due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

Death On The Nile
Death On The Nile is another movie to be shifted to a new release date.

Besides the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney has also changed the release dates of some projects produced by Fox before the acquisition in early 2019. Death On The Nile - the next movie about Detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) after Murder On The Orient Express (2017) - that is scheduled to be released on December 18, instead of October 23 as initially planned.

West Side Story - a musical drama movie that is directed by legendary director Steven Spielberg - isn’t reportedly released on December 10. Instead, the audience will have to keep waiting until December 18, 2021. Accordingly, this movie will no longer appear on the Film Festival 2020 - 2021.

West Side Story
West Side Story will no longer appear on the Film Festival 2020 - 2021.

Speaking of Deep Water, it is scheduled to release on August 13, 2021, instead of on November 13. The thriller movie stars Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas as the main characters.

According to Variety magazine, the changes in Disney’s release dates must make the owners of the theatres that has just re-opened face lots of difficulties. From now to mid-November when 007: No Time To Die is scheduled to release, they will have no notable movie to attract the audience to the theatres.
