Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will reportedly get an early release for NBA players staying at Walt Disney World resorts.
The NBA is sending 22 teams to Orlando, Florida to resume the season at the ESPN World Wide Sports at Walt Disney World, but to stop the possibility of spreading the coronavirus, NBA players, their family and the staff won’t have much access to outside entertainment. Disney is looking to offer entertainment options for the players, like comedians and musicians. The company will also reportedly screen its movies, including those not yet released.
NBA insider Keith Smith took to Twitter to announce the news, saying that according to Walt Disney World sources, the players will be able to watch movies that haven’t been theatrically released yet – like Black Widow. It’ll be interesting to see if there’ll be any rules following the screenings to avoid spoilers leaking before the film’s release later this year. Take a look at the NBA insider discussing Black Widow below.
Per Walt Disney World Sources: Disney will make movies available for players and their families (once they join). This is likely to include movies that have not been released to the general public, including Marvel's Black Widow.
