Black Widow Release Date Pushed Back
Variety brings word that the release date of the Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow has been pushed back. The Marvel Studios movie was originally meant to arrive in theaters on May 1. The film is the latest to join other Disney titles that have been delayed, including Mulan, The New Mutants, and Antlers, due to the pandemic.
Scarlett Johansson returns as Natasha Romanoff, a spy and assassin who grew up being trained by the KGB before breaking from their grasp and becoming an agent of SHIELD and an Avenger. The film is expected to be set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War.
Black Widow will also feature a star-studded cast including Golden Globe nominee David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy) as Alexei aka The Red Guardian, Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) as Yelena Belova, Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) as Melina and O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason.
The movie is being directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) from a script written by Jac Schaeffer (The Hustle).
