Marvel’s “Black Widow” Release Postponed Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With growing concerns about the spread of coronavirus, Disney has decided to delay the release of the highly-anticipated “Black Widow” film, which was slated to hit movie theaters May 1, 2020.

Less than a week ago, Disney postponed “Mulan”, “The New Mutants”, and “Antlers” which were all scheduled for release in March and April.

The CDC currently recommends against gatherings of 50 or more people. Many movie theaters, including AMC 24 at Disney Springs, have closed or will be closing in the coming days to prevent the spread of the virus. Movies that were released before widespread closures have been taking a hit in the box office, including Disney’s “Onward”, which was released earlier this month.

No new date has been announced for “Black Widow”, but we will keep you updated as news surrounding coronavirus develops. You can watch the final trailer for the film here.

It would be nice if they just opted for a way to watch it at home, like what Universal seems to be planning on doing with some of their upcoming releases.
