Due to the ongoing crisis and lockdown in many parts of the world, the release of Black Widow was postponed earlier. Starring Scarlett Johansson in the titular role, the film was supposed to hit the theatres on April 30, but that won’t be happening anymore.
A few days ago, Scarlett’s co-star David Harbour said on his Instagram live that he would love if Black Widow releases on Disney+. Since then, there have been reports that Marvel and Disney are planning for Black Widow’s digital release. So it is really happening? Read on.
It’s true that Marvel and Disney wanted to release Scarlett’s film on the digital platform. However, they have changed their minds and decided to give it a theatrical release only. As reported by WeGotThisCovered, an insider from Comic Book told them that both the production companies were concerned about the financial income they would miss out on if the film is released digitally. Also, the current crisis has led to a major loss of many big production houses and the overall entertainment industry. So, no matter how much delay happens, for now, the decision is to release the film on the big screen.
Talking about Black Widow, the film will tell us Natasha Romanoff’s story before she becomes an Avenger. David Harbour plays her father (Red Guardian) and the film also stars Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz. Actor Robert Downey Jr aka Tony Stark reportedly has a special appearance in the film. However, there’s no confirmation on the same yet.
