Black Widow has been delayed. Yes. It’s sad but it’s official now. Marvel Studios just recently confirmed it. Now, the first movie in Phase 4 of the MCU won’t be coming in theaters on May 1st, 2020. Further, a new date hasn't been announced.

Covid 19 is here to stay for quite a longer duration and the cancellation of the highly anticipated film, which was confirmed by Variety, has just solidified this probability.

However, the Scarlett Johansson flick is not the only postponed project in the entertainment industry at the moment. Dozens of other releases have been delayed in just the last four-five days, namely, Daniel Craig’s No Time To Die and also the Fast & Furious 9. Production on the big-budget films like Robert Pattinson's The Batman, and Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible 7 (shooting was in Venice, Italy) has also been put on hold for two-three weeks.

Major theaters in the United States have been shut down due to the current threat of Coronavirus. And if the theaters themselves are not open then how can a movie be released to the audiences?

But the big question is: When will this lockdown period stop?

Well, considering the ongoing prevention measures throughout the world then it seems likely the pandemic will prevail over the coming weeks—maybe for the next one or two months. It’s not certain though, but nothing can be assumed.

If released according to the schedule, Black Widow could have been the very first Phase 4 movie to be introduced by Marvel Studios after the last MCU film, Spider-Man: Far From Home. That flick came in 2019 and was the last movie in the Infinity Saga that consisted of three phases.

With every big upcoming movie or TV Show getting postponed, canceled or delayed, fans are now left dejected. But there’s no solution to this since they are themselves forced to live in quarantine and in self-isolation while practicing ‘safe social distancing’.
