Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ Pushed Back To May 2021

Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow has been delayed.

Disney has once again pushed back the release of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.

Recent reports suggested that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow could once again be delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and now Disney has announced that it’s moving the Marvel Studios project to May 7th, 2021. Black Widow was originally scheduled to hit theaters this past May before moving to November of this year.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek was recently asked if Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow could drop on the company’s streaming service after Mulan‘s release on the platform. At the time, Chapek said that Mulan‘s Disney Plus release was a “one-off.”

Two new trailers for the Black Widow movie are expected to make their debut soon. The British Board of Film Classification officially rated the two sneak peeks back in July. The first trailer clocks in at 158 seconds while the other one has a running time of 104 seconds.

Here is the official synopsis for the Scarlett Johansson movie:

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.

Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Eric Pearson based on a story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, the film stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.
