This is not that surprising really given the trend to do this with most Marvel movies in recent years. Only Infinity War and Endgame were released on the same day across the globe with almost all other Marvel movies hitting earlier in the U.K. (Ant-Man and the Wasp was a month late). In this instance it is only a couple of days. However those couple of days, as U.S. fans will have previously noted, can mean social media filled with spoilers. I honestly don’t think it will be too bad this time around. There are still not a blot of cinema’s open across the Nation, and those that are have limited seating and various other restrictions.
Personally I plan to watch the movie at home on Disney+ Premium access on the 9th. That’s the day I get back from a four day vacation, so don’t expect to read many articles from me that week on LRM. However, you can be assured that we will be covering our thoughts on the movie in various articles and podcasts as you’d expect week commencing July 12th.
It feels like we have waited so long for Black Widow that I’m kinda excited that I will be seeing it soon. It would be great if that excitement leads me into a great movie, but that remains to be seen.
Any U.K. fans planning to go see Black Widow in theatres early on here? Let us know. As for the rest of us, we will have a nice Friday evening on July 9th. No matter whether we watch in theatres or at home. Black Widow will Release early, so do be wary of SPOILERS before the 9th!
