Marvel fans may be in for disappointing news the next few weeks.

According to a report by Beyond the Trailer scooper and reviewer Grace Randolph, sources close to Marvel say that the studio may be thinking of moving Black Widow yet again due to the pandemic. Taking to Twitter, Randolph posted a tweet saying that highly anticipated movies this year like Wonder Woman 1984, Dune, and No Time to Die could be all moved to 2021.

The tweet came after the announcement that Tenet had no longer been given a release date, and the pop culture scooper went to add on another post saying that Black Widow is also on the move – though Marvel could just shift all of its release dates again to accommodate the film’s new 2021 release.

The idea of Marvel delaying its film even further doesn’t sound too farfetched. There may be governments reopening after successfully flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the novel coronavirus continues to take a toll on the entertainment industry. Cinemas still can’t fully open and various productions remain on hold in fear of the risk of spreading the disease to a project’s cast and crew.

While Marvel has yet to announce the delay of Black Widow, the studio has already announced the delay of other projects like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Perhaps Marvel is simply biding time waiting to assess the situation before declaring another major film delay.

Black Widow is set to premiere on November 6, 2020.
