The coronavirus pandemic saw Marvel Studios take a hit as they shuffle release dates and delay production for their Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. While Black Widow is currently set to arrive in theaters on November 6, a new rumor suggests that the film might not keep its release date after all.
In a recent report from Deadline on Wonder Woman 1984 moving from its October premiere date to November, the outlet notes that Black Widow could have a similar situation. "There is a possibility we could see Wonder Woman 1984 going somewhere in November — yes, November," the report reads. "There are whispers, and Disney would not confirm today, that its Marvel movie Black Widow could move from its November 6 release date."
Should Black Widow get moved from its November spot, this could mean that the entire MCU slate will follow and will be pushed back for the second time. This also results in staggered releases for projects that are already resuming production despite the pandemic.
If Marvel Studios decides to release Black Widow around the holidays, this then could be a little close to Eternals, which is set to arrive on February 12, which means they would opt to delay future movies and shows too.
Then again, this could be a benefit for the upcoming projects, getting some additional time to work on scripts or other matters. Of course, this would be unfortunate news for fans who have been waiting for these projects to be released. For now, there's no official word from Disney just yet, so fans should take this with a grain of salt.
Black Widow is currently set for release on November 6.
