Due to the pandemic, a lot of movies and shows had put a pause on shooting or pushed back their release dates. This has happened with quite a lot of movies, especially expensive blockbusters which includes Marvel’s Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson.
Fans have been thrilled to see Scarlet Johansson finally get her own Marvel movie with Black Widow after almost a decade of being associated with Marvel. Directed by Cate Shortland, the upcoming blockbuster will reveal more about the character’s backstory, and also say goodbye to the character following her death in Avengers: Endgame.
Unfortunately the movie has been delayed a number of times, and Johansson recently opened up about the most recent delay and said, “I’d been talking to Kevin Feige about it, and our fellow producers, just trying to understand what the landscape was.
We’re all eager to get the movie out, but more important than anything, everybody wants the experience to feel safe, to have people be able to really feel confident about sitting in an enclosed theater.”
Even though the actress would love to see Black Widow in theaters just like the rest of us, the actress wants to make sure that Marvel fans can safely congregate in a crowded indoor movie theater. And since that isn’t an option for so many of these venues right now, her first solo flick has been delayed until May next year.
With Black Widow now arriving a year after its original release date, Scarlett Johansson’s departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been delayed. Fans aren’t really ready yet to say goodbye to Natasha Romanoff, although her the movie could result in a better understanding and give new context to her decision to sacrifice herself in Avengers: Endgame. In the process we’ll also meet the character’s first chosen family.
