Ahead of Comic-Con 2020, Disney confirms Black Widow movie’s UK release prior to its November 6 US release date
Disney has a special treat for Marvel fan base in the United Kingdom. The delayed Black Widow movie will now hit UK theatres a week before the announced slot of November 6 in the US. However, Disney has not confirmed anything about the future MCU series.
Heads Up! Disney Confirms to Release The Black Widow Movie in the UK market before the US
- Disney’s Constant Shuffling of the Release Dates
- Announcement Hopes From Comic-Con @ Home
Disney has decided to release the Black Widow movie a week earlier in the UK assuming cinemas are open by October. Entertainment daily Digital Spy that broke the news reports:
The upcoming solo outing for Scarlett Johansson’s superhero movie now has a UK release date of October 28.
Disney’s Constant Shuffling of the Release Dates
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, all the productions are stalled in Hollywood. Now a month and a half later following social distancing and lockdown protocols there seems some hope for film productions.
It is not a new thing for Marvel movies to get a prior release in the UK market. But in a post-pandemic world the news gives fans something to look forward to.
Marvel’s Phase 4 has taken the major hit by the virus. Various productions stalled at different stages resulting in the delay of the Black Widow movie, Wanda Vision series and more.
Scarlet Johanson’s movie took the spot of previously decided Nov 6 2021, of the Eternals movie in the new phase 4 schedule. That further created the rippled effect in the delay of other movies as well as Disney Plus show’s release dates.
The interconnectedness of MCU movies and TV series has hampered the release dates further. WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier which were the first Disney + offerings have no release date to them as yet. This will affect Doctor Strange sequel that WandaVision ties into. Sony’s Spider-Mandate shuffles have already jeopardized Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of the Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder.
Meaning, the Phase 4 slate might still see some major shuffling of the future releases depending on Disney’s announcement regarding Disney+ shows.
Hopes From Comic-Con @ Home
Fans are also very keen on the upcoming Comic-Con At Home. Initially cancelled for 2020 due to the outbreak of pandemic SDCC recently, announced a virtual convention this summer. The fans rejoiced as the Marvel Studio Panel at the SDCC 2020 event will give fans more scoops and clarity about the upcoming events in the MCU.
Most fans are expecting a glimpse into the MCU Multiverse with a trailer drop for WandaVision. Likewise, fans are eager to see concept art or teaser for Eternals and, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Or maybe a peek into Phase 5 Concept Art.
Since Disney’s quarterly call a week ago, many MCU rumoured projects have surfaced like the Ironheart, Secret Warriors, Ghost Rider and more. It’ll be great to get a nod about these superheroes too.
