BLACK WIDOW Is "Definitely" Still Set For A Theatrical Release Despite Rumor To The Contrary

Despite a recent rumor that Disney is considering a Digital or Disney+ release for Marvel's Black Widow movie, we've been assured that the film is still scheduled for a theatrical bow... at some point.

We recently got the bad news that Marvel's Black Widow had been pushed back from its original May 1st release, and although we were assured that the movie would still be given a theatrical debut, there's still a lot of speculation that Disney may decide to send the Fallen Avenger's first solo adventure directly to Digital or Disney+. 

The other day, Grace Randolph sent out a Tweet which got the rumor mill going again. The Beyond the Trailer host said she did some digging and found out that Disney is considering sending Black Widow and Mulan straight to streaming, but that price points, purchase vs rental etc were "all still up in the air." 

Well, we've reached out to a contact at Disney and they've confirmed that the film is definitely still set for a theatrical release at some point. We weren't given any indication of when that might be, but chances are the studio isn't completely certain about that themselves given the current situation.

This could change, of course. If theaters don't reopen before the end of the year (unlikely, but entirely possible) then Disney/Marvel may decide to release the movie to streaming rather than push it back to 2021, but, for the time being, Black Widow is still on track to hit theaters.

"In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, “Black Widow”—the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe—hits U.S. theaters on May 1, 2020." --Marvel Studios."

Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, William Hurt, Ray Winstone and Olivier Richters. Let us know if you're looking forward to the movie in the comments
