After Warner Bros.’s surprise decision in 2021, it was a matter of great curiosity what would happen to other big budget movies to be released this year. Black Widow is one of those movies.
As you know, the cinema universe prepared by Disney for Marvel has come to the end of an era with Avengers Endgame. The new era of the universe would also start with the movie focusing on the Black Widow character, but we could not see the movie in any way because the epidemic was a hindrance.
As you know, the movie was normally expected to be released in May 2020, but unfortunately, the movie was delayed several times due to the epidemic and finally the release date was May 2021. However, this date also seems risky as the effect of the epidemic has not fully passed. That’s why Disney seems to be trying different ways for the movie.
According to Variety’s report, Disney is currently considering releasing Black Widow in both theaters and Disney + Premier Access. So, just like Mulan, it will also be available for sale on Disney +. For the time being, the report is only about discussing this idea, so there is no official situation. Another idea is to postpone the movie again.
In addition, according to Variety’s report, it has been said that the desired profit cannot be achieved by broadcasting such movies with large budgets and with big box office expectations both in theaters and video streaming platforms. That’s why Warner Bros.’s decision is so surprising. Wonder Woman 1984 is expected to lose nearly $ 100 million at the box office. The contribution of the new members earned by HBO Max will be determined in the future.
The current release date of Black Widow is May 7, 2021. The film is directed by Cate Shortland. The cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbor and William Hurt.
