With the release of other big titles being moved to home releases, such as Wonder Woman 1984, the fate of Marvel Studios’ Black Widow was unknown. But during the Investors Call on Thursday, Disney revealed that long-delayed Black Widow will not be getting a home release, at least not yet.
Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz, has been moved to a theatrical release date of May 7, 2021.
The fate of Black Widow has been a heated discussion as of late, debates of whether it would face a fate similar to Mulan due to the numerous COVID-related push backs, but Disney is holding strong to debuting Natasha’s standalone film on the big screen.
This announcement also comes on the heels of the reveal that Florence Pugh will be reprising her role as Yelena in the upcoming Hawkeye series for Disney+, which is currently filming.
Fingers crossed for May 7, 2021, to be the day! For now, we’ve marked it in our calendars.
