Marvel’s Black Widow will no longer be in cinemas in May.

The last blockbuster movie on the schedules for release between now and the middle of May has now vacated its release date. Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh, had been set for release on May 1st. But with cinemas around the world closing in response to the spread of Coronavirus, it always felt inevitable that the movie would have to be postponed.

The decision was thus announced yesterday that the film was moving to later in the year, albeit to no new confirmed date as of yet.

This is a film that won’t be heading to a streaming service debut, that much is pretty clear. Given the chronology of Marvel cinematic universe films, it’s also fair to assume that other upcoming Marvel films will face a knock-on too.

More news as we hear it. The next major comic book movie on the schedule is Wonder Woman 84. That lands in June, but with cinemas set to close for weeks, there’s a strong chance that may end up moving too.
