After several postponements of the release of “ Black Widow ” and the huge impact that the COVID pandemic continues to have on the film industry, Disney has decided to keep the film’s release ONLY in theaters on May 7.
The news was confirmed by Disney CEO Bob Chapek at a conference today.
In Brazil, the launch is still scheduled for April 29, a week before the United States.
According to Variety, Marvel boss Kevin Feige is one of the reasons to insist on a theatrical production release. The producer is said to oppose the film’s release on Disney + and is determined to keep the debut on screen.
Disney seems to respect your decision.
“Black Widow” will last 2 hours and 13 minutes.
By way of comparison, the film approaches the length of “Captain America: Civil War” (2 hours and 27 minutes) and “Black Panther” (2 hours and 14 minutes).
In addition to Scarlett Johansson in the lead role, the cast includes David Harbor, Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh and OT Fagbenle.
