Marvel’s Black Widow release delayed by Covid-19 pandemic

Covid-19 aka Coronavirus has a lot to answer for. Black Widow will no longer be released on May 1st.

Marvel fans will have to wait a little longer for the highly anticipated ‘Black Widow’ solo movie. The studio has taken the decision to delay the film as the Coronvirus pandemic disrupts daily life across the globe.

Government advice strongly advocates social distancing. The public are advised not to leave their homes unless absolutely necessary. Certainly stay away from gatherings. Bad news for cinemas.

In the UK, the Picturehouse cinema chain has already announced that they will be closing theatres to protect the safety of their customers and staff. Others are sure to follow suit as fears surrounding the spread of Covid-19 escalate.

With their fan’s health and safety in mind and faced with diminished audiences, Marvel have taken the decision to delay the release of ‘Black Widow’. The film was scheduled to hit the big screen on May 1st.
