It looks like Disney and Marvel Studios are having second thoughts pushing through with Black Widow's supposed theatrical release in about 2 months.

ComicBook.com reports that current plans call for the film, top-billed by Scarlett Johannson to be delayed once again due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. No official confirmation by Disney has been made although this doesn't come as a surprise anymore since DC's Wonder Woman 1984 bailed out of its original October screening and rescheduled to December 25th.

Fans are cool with it being released via the "Premier Access" feature of Disney+ just like the live-action Mulan but it would definitely take away the film's splendor, considering it's a Marvel flick. Personally, I'd be willing to wait for it to be screened in theaters once everything is back to normal. The only issue, of course, would be if it actually affects the MCU's current continuity. We still don't know for sure but the pressure is on for Disney and Marvel Studios to come up with a backup plan.

Read the full synopsis for Black Widow below:

At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative.

As it stands, Black Widow is still being advertised for a November 6th release date.
