'Black Widow' Will Still Be Released in Theaters, Disney CEO Says

One of the most anticipated movies that was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic is the Marvel film Black Widow and an update was just provided.

Bob Chapek, the new CEO of Disney, has said the movie will still be released in theaters, despite many other films moving to streaming platforms.

“We’ll be watching to see the reopening of theaters and consumer sentiment in terms of going back to theater,” Chapek said on an earnings call, according to Deadline.

Black Widow is currently scheduled to be released on May 7 and if the pandemic slows down by then, there’s a chance the film could become the first blockbuster movie of the year.

Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff in the new film and she is joined by Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz. This will be the first film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four.
