Black Widow has again been delayed. This, of course, has lead to the delays of multiple Disney films including those from Marvel Studios. But, never fear, we’re still getting the four Marvel films promised before the end of the year!
And, at least we got a cool new poster, yeah?
Disney announced today that Black Widow has been pushed to July 9, from early May. Along with this news, the film will be released same day in theatres and on Disney+. Of course, I mean “Premier Access” which adds a $30 price tag to the movie in addition to your subscription.
Likewise, Cruella, which is set for May 28th, will be released the same way.
The other interesting detail in today’s announcement is that Pixar’s Luca will be skipping theaters and will be free on Disney’s streaming service. I don’t know what Disney’s deal is with Pixar, but this will be the third “free” Pixar film following Onward and Soul.
Black Widow‘s delay has lead to other moves in the Disney theatrical calendar.
For Marvel Studios, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings moved out of Black Widow‘s way and onto September 3rd. The Eternals is still set for November and Spider-Man: No Way Home hasn’t budged from December.
Other new Disney release dates are Free Guy on August 13th, The King’s Man on December 22nd, with Deep Water and Death on the Nile pushed into 2022.
Will this be the final move for Black Widow? One expects so, but nothing is certain these days, is it?
