This news comes to us from Variety, and is sure to be a bummer for the rabid Marvel fanbase. Black Widow was set to kick off Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also providing closure with Scarlet Johansson’s title character. Originally set to arrive on May 1st, Marvel and Disney have officially pulled the highly anticipated blockbuster. What’s more, there’s no telling when it might actually hit theaters.
The marketing campaign for Black Widow has been going full title for a few months now. The movie’s trailers were methodically released, and ads about Natasha Romanoff’s long awaited solo flick are all over the internet and TV. And between the title character’s fate in Avengers: Endgame and the killer cast Cate Shortland assembled, Black Widow was a highly anticipated blockbuster before being pulled.
