In an unsurprising move, Disney Studios who own Marvel has decided to postpone Black Widow film release date from November this year to May7th of next year. The film starring Scarlett Johansson is a spin off from highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. As of this moment, the final movie that bid adieu to several major characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Endgame’ sits atop the list of highest grossing movies of all-time crossing behemoths like ‘Avatar’ and ‘Titanic’. Black Widow’s past had not been explained in the past MCU films although a brief scene in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ showed how the hand to hand combat master and saboteur assassin was recruited and trained at a young age by an unknown Eastern European country, more probably during Soviet Era.

Major Hollywood studios postponed and moved their tentpole summer films this year amid coronavirus concerns. The experience of going to a theatre on a free day with family or friends has become forbidden fruit. Audience who sit in a closed space for no less than 2 hours will increase the odds of getting a coronavirus infection even though proper social distancing rules were applied stringently.

In India, theatres were yet to be opened and only a handful of countries with low infection numbers opened theatres. Drive-in cinemas has seen a revival in United States.
