After several studios began the delay of upcoming films, it was only a matter of time before Disney would do the same with Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, and now it seems that is the case. According to CNN’s Frank Pallotta, the film’s release has been delayed.
Disney had already pushed back the release of several other films, including Mulan and New Mutants. This new batch of delays will include The Personal History of David Copperfield and The Women in the Window.
JUST IN: Disney is delaying Marvel’s Black Widow because of the coronavirus. It was due out on May 1.

Black Widow was set to hit theaters on May 1, but presently it is unknown when the film will be released. Disney and Marvel Studios has not yet revealed when fans can expect to see the movie released. Officials have estimated the effects of COVID-19 will be felt well into July and August so Disney could move Black Widow to a summer release. It was rumored the events of the film would impact The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, so the movie should be expected to be released before the Disney+ series begins streaming.
A number of studios have begun releasing their films early on video on demand, so perhaps Marvel will follow suit. The highly anticipated film was expected to open to roughly $115 million, so the studio was looking at a decent box office haul.
