So remember back in 2020 how Black Widow was going to be the first Movie, TV Show or misc other for Phase 4 of the MCU after the epilogue that was Spider-Man: Far from Home? Ok so we know that didn’t happen due to global reasons (leading to getting Wandavision before The Falcon & The Winter Soldier before Black Widow) and while we have already seen the first trailer Marvel just released a new one to distract from the shake up of release dates for the rest of the year.
Replanned for May in 2021 the new Black Widow film is now heading for dual release on both Disney+ as part of a Premium Pass and Cinema release on the same day, similar to Raya the Last Dragon and what was intended for the live Action Mulan. This is becoming less uncommon coming out of 2020 with the HBO Max streaming service offering up many big screen movies as exclusives to their service such as last week’s Godzilla vs Kong.
The dropping and update to Black Widows release date is not happening in isolation with both Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (having completed filming in Australia) and The Eternals both intended for 2021 release having minor shifts to their release dates, with Shang-Chi going from a definite date to a release window month for Australian release in September.
Marvel is not the only ones adjusting their 2021 release date as we have seen multiple films from The Quiet Place II moving forward 3 months to Venom 2 being pushed back as many – this is more than likely a result of seeing the confirmed progress for vaccinations in the US with things like SDCC now being back on the table for 2021 but happening in November (thanksgiving) instead of it’s regular July. As always we try to keep our Australian Events Calendar up to date as much as possible for you.
If you want to check out the new Black Widow trailer you can do so below. While it holds no surprises from previous trailers we do get to see a lot more Taskmaster sporting his comic-true shield design as well as showing off some other Avenger’s moves he picked up here and there.
And hey, don’t forget to tell us what you think! Are you looking forward to Black Widow? Are you going to see it in cinemas or are you loving the new stream at home at release option via Disney+?
