Marvel’s Black Widow is set to release on May 7 this year, after being delayed from May 2020. Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek stated in the company’s latest earnings call that movie will still be released in theaters, but it sounds like there is a chance it could be delayed again depending on numerous factors.
During the Q1 Disney earnings call, Chapek was asked about whether or not Black Widow will release theatrically in May. “We are still intending it to be a theatrical release,” he explained. “But, again, we are going to be watching very carefully. The reopening of theaters, and the consumer sentiment–in terms of the desire to go back to theaters–to see whether that strategy needs to be revisited. But as of now, the strategy is to continue on with the theatrical release, and we’ll be watching very, very carefully.”
Black Widow coming to Disney+’s Premier Access seems out of the question. The next film to be a part of the streaming service’s premium section is the animated film Raya and the Last Dragon, which arrives on March 5.
