Yesterday, Disney had a shareholders meeting and CEO Bob Chapek said again that Marvel’s Black Widow solo film is sticking to it’s May 7th release date. Never mentioning a hybrid release on Disney+ for the Marvel Studios flick, something fans have been hoping since a full year ago.
The film directed by Cate Shortland takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War before the death of Natasha in Avengers: Endgame, the idea is that the Black Widow mantle is going to be handed down for future films and shows. Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova is also returning for the Hawkeye series set to begin airing on Disney+ in late 2021 but the size of her role hasn’t been confirmed.
BLACK WIDOW – Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
