Many people are eager to watch Scarlett Johansson’s first solo outing at Marvel Studios, seeing as it’s now been nearly a year since the Black Widow film was initially meant to release.
Reported by Deadline, Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek commented on the release pattern of Black Widow, which the entertainment industry is watching very closely.
“Just a few weeks ago, theaters in New York and Los Angeles weren’t even open. Now, all of a sudden they’re open, so we’re waiting to see how prospective theatergoers respond to these reopenings. We’re going to remain flexible. We’ll make the call probably at the last minute in terms of how these films come to market, whether it’s Black Widow or any other title.”
The film is already completely done, and essentially just sitting on the shelf ready to be watched by the masses. It’s truly odd that fans have so much marketing material for it, yet it still has yet to premiere.
