More Marvel-Ous News: Black Widow Officially Delayed Due to COVID-19

As the world begins to grapple with the crippling situation we're in due to the coronavirus and how quickly it's spreading, Hollywood is being very proactive to protect its financial interests, its stars, and its crew members especially when it comes to their big name franchise films. 

With movies like No Time To Die, A Quiet Place II, and so many others being delayed, the latest movie to receive the treatment is the Scarlett Johannson Marvel feature, Black Widow. It's just been announced that Disney has decided that it's going to also delay the cinematic release of this year's big comic book flick. The film was set to hit in May 2020 with marketing really ramping up the last couple months. Now, it's been pushed back while most of the world has much bigger things to worry about than comic book movies. 

Today also brought word that massive theater chains including Regal Cinemas, AMC, and Alamo Drafthouse are all shutting down for 6-12 weeks to see where this thing stands and to fall in line with the social distancing that's been suggested. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Black Widow is now delayed with no word on when it will finally hit theaters.
