Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Widows release has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic resulting in the shutting down of movie theatres across the world.
The news came as a shock to millions of fans eagerly waiting for the movie, which would be the first movie named after the first female Avenger in the series and was also rumored to bring everyone’s favorite, Iron Man, back to the big screen possibly for one last time.
Each MCU movie gathers an unreal amount of hype before its release, and more often than not, lives up to it. We understand what it’s like to see one everyone’s eagerly waiting for to get postponed, but don’t worry, we’ve got all the updates you’ll need on the new Black Widow movie.
Black Widow Release Date
The release date for Black Widow has been postponed to 28 October in the UK and November 2020 in the rest of the theatres across the globe. Unlike other movies and shows that got postponed because of a halt in production, the only reason for Black Widow being postponed was that people would not be able to go watch it in theatres during the pandemic, and so the fixed release date was simply postponed to a date which wouldn’t have such complications.
Thankfully, November is not that far away; meanwhile, you can watch the two trailers released for Black Widow here :
Black Widow Plot
Black Widow will kickstart MCU’s phase 4 and will give us a backdrop into the life of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, who was a part of the original six Avengers.
The movie is set in the MCU timeline somewhere between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity war.
Although a prequel, the movie might give birth to the storylines of phase 4. In the trailer, we see Natasha return to Russia in an attempt to confront her past. We might get to see flashbacks of Natasha back when she was a Russian super spy.
The protagonist in this film is the Taskmaster, a notorious Marvel villain famous for being able to imitate the skills of his opponents in battle. He seems to be in charge of the black widow training academy which had taught Nat the tricks of her trade, and which might possibly be her next target. The movie will also feature new characters such as the Red Guardian, who in the comics is Russia’s attempt at recreating a Captain America, and might also feature returning characters such as Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark.
Fans are particularly excited to see Stark and Nat together on the big screen again since both characters died in Endgame and this might possibly be the last time we may see the two on the big screen again.
