MCU’s biggest surprise hidden in Black Widow
Set after Captain America: Civil War, the Black Widow will bring back none other than Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man/ Tony Stark. After his devastating death in Avengers: Endgame, it was believed by all that Endgame was his last outing as Iron Man. But it seems like, Marvel has other plans. MCU is bringing back Iron Man on Black Widow! Answering the rumors is the man himself. RDJ, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, played it cool when asked about his cameo in Black Widow,
“Right,” he said. “Great. I mean, it would be nice if they notified me. Forewarned is forearmed. They can do anything now. This could be a deep fake interview for all we know.”
But we all know RDJ is never serious. In fact, we might see more Avengers in the movie, apart from Black Widow and Iron Man.
Now that Coronavirus has thrown water on our movie plans, scroll down to know how Coronavirus is coming after movies.
Coronavirus kills the curiosity of Black Widow’s premiere
Coronavirus has already cost Hollywood studio giants millions of dollars. Big projects are also facing empty theatres and the ringing question in everyone’s mind is how long the situation will continue.
“We are decision makers and problem solvers, but unfortunately because the problem is so unknown in terms of its degree, we just don’t know how deep we’re in. No one knows.” Said one source from distribution circles.
Japan has hinted cancellation of the Olympics, which is serious because last time the Olympics was cancelled only during World Wars. After Diamond Princess Cruise ship saga, the box office collection is sluggish. And Korea that is basking in Oscar’s glory is facing a particularly worrying situation.
Even after being the world’s fifth-largest box office market, the attendance is sharply down. China, where the impact of the Coronavirus is the greatest is not expected to get better anytime soon. Sources suggest that the best case scenario when we could expect people back to theatres is Late April. A more realistic time is late May.
Marvel is certain not to take any risks for its upcoming ambitious project. Disney+ that owns Marvel Entertainment is reportedly considering to postpone the premiere of MCU’s Black Widow to July 2020.
Coronavirus is a potential pandemic and big production companies are taking it really seriously, unlike Donald Trump, who every time compares it with the winter flu.
