On March 17, Marvel officially postponed the release date of upcoming Black Widow movie after health officials called for social restrictions amid COVID-19 pandemic.

All blockbuster films such as A Quiet Place II, No Time to Die, Fast & Furious 9, and Peter Rabbit 2 have delayed their release date, and Marvel’s Black Widow have simply delayed indefinitely with no current release date at the moment.

However, Marvel can only make it available through streaming on-demands partners like Vudu, Amazon, and the like. After all, Universal announced yesterday it would be doing a similar move with new releases for the foreseeable future.

At this point, there are speculations and questions of how this will impact other Marvel Studios release dates.

According to Variety's Adam B. Vary and Matt Donelly, one insider they've spoken with says the Cate Shortland-directed flick could be "inconsequential" to the other movies and shows coming out from Marvel Studios.

"It was not clear if the implication was that “Widow” will see the light of day before August, or that the film is inconsequential to Phase Four, or if the source has a tesseract."
