Coronavirus will affect almost all industries on the face of the planet, including cinema! After all, Disney has already postponed the release of Mulan! Still, there are things that just can’t be postponed, which includes some Marvel projects from Disney.
Marvel won’t postpone Black Widow! But Phase 4 will suffer a little…
Therefore, Marvel has already released the final Black Widow trailer, confirming that the release date should continue to be set on May 1, 2020. This is because, apparently, Disney has no choice but to release the film as planned, just like which is also required to release The Eternals in November. (Due to Marvel’s careful launch planning for 2020 and 2021.)
That said, even with the Coronavirus closing several movie theaters, analysts still expect Black Widow to be quite successful at the box office, as they estimate a debut weekend of around 90 ~ 130 million dollars.
In short, things can still change, but Black Widow is due to hit theaters on May 1st! However… COVID-19 will definitely damage Marvel’s MCU. After all, there are several projects under development at this time, like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which just canceled work in Prague due to the epidemic.
Something that could happen with other films and series currently in production by the gigantic Marvel. That is, we are talking about a major impact on Disney + since we have many fans waiting for new series based on the Marvel Universe on the platform.
In fact, if you don’t know, it seems that Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be based on a World epidemic! Something that was obviously crossed out from the script, but that forced a lot of change in the story.
