Black Widow may release on Disney+

With the impact of coronavirus rapidly growing around the world, Disney, along with other major Hollywood studios, is delaying the release of upcoming blockbuster movies including Mulan and The New Mutants. This is in tandem with cinema closures during the pandemic.

Now, there is a rumour Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow could bow on Disney+ this May. This would be a fillip for the streaming service and an opportunity for the House of Mouse to trial a straight-to-consumer blockbuster release with a pay-per-view window.

In the wake of Frozen 2 streaming early on Disney+, early-bird subscribers (myself included) have asked if the UK launch could be brought forward by a week as many people are self-isolating. The official Disney Plus UK Twitter account acknowledged this and apologised that it wasn't possible.

Disney+ launches 24th March in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland.
