A new report indicates that Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming solo Marvel film, Black Widow, may be delayed again due to the coronavirus.
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was set to be one of the first blockbusters of the summer. Unfortunately, like many other films, it was delayed due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus. Many had anticipated that the situation would be resolved within the United States before mid-summer. This sadly did not happen and many films have had to continuously delay their release dates with several more rumored to be delayed again.
Earlier today, a new report from Deadline indicated that Gal Gadot’s upcoming film, Wonder Woman: 1984 would be delayed once again by Warner Bros, shaking up the Fall/Winter movie lineup. That same report also suggested that Scarlett Johannson’s Black Widow may also be delayed as well. Disney, however, would not confirm this but experts have predicted that theaters may be closed up until mid-summer as the situation with the coronavirus continues to evolve. Whether or not Wonder Woman will move into Black Widow‘s spot, however, remains to be seen.
