MCU: ‘Black Widow’ is still targeting a May release


Despite new COVID-19 cases and an adverse scenario, Kevin Feige and the team are still looking forward to a May release of Black Widow.

Currently, Black Widow is slated to come out on May 7th. Rising cases of Coronavirus are hard to ignore at the moment. But Marvel Studios seems firm with its decision to release the film in May itself.

A recent update from Deadline revealed the situation regarding the MCU film.

‘Black Widow’ release: What to expect?

As per Deadline, Marvel Studios is still hoping for the Scarlett Johansson title to debut on May 7th. However, the impact of the pandemic is inevitable to ignore.

Despite the lack of confirmation about its arrival, the only certain thing is that Black Widow will come to theaters. At least, that’s the makers’ mission who are yet to finalize if it should eventually be released on Disney+ or not.

It’s because COVID-19 has forced most of the cinema halls to shut down. And even if they re-open, somehow, Disney will need a lot of crowd in theaters to see a blockbuster performance.

That’s where Black Widow might miss the mark due to limited entries and other restrictions.

All fingers are crossed right now.

Along with its main lead Scarlett Johansson, the movie also stars Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour. Other cast members are O.T. Fagbenle, William Hurt, and Yolanda Lynes.

Upcoming MCU titles

Many things are coming soon when it comes to fresh content from the biggest superhero cinematic franchise.

Speaking of new titles, fans will witness another MCU TV series before the end of this month. Falcon and the Winter Soldier will start Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in Sam and Bucky’s iconic roles.

However, it’s not the only Marvel show to release this year. In June, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will make its way on the Disney Plus streaming service.

And that’s not it!

The future list gets extended further with Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and Secret Invasion. Other awaited projects include Ironheart, She-Hulk, a Wakanda-based series, and What If…?.

On the side of movies, too, the Marvel slate looks packed-up. Die-hard fans will be looking forward to Eternals, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Thor 4, and Captain Marvel 2.

Then there are newly added properties like Deadpool and Fantastic Four. They might make an entry in the next few years from now.

Back to Black Widow, then everyone expects it to arrive in theaters in the next two months.

But again, it all depends on the virus situation, eventually.
