'Black Widow' release will no longer happen on May 1

The Marvel superhero action movie will no longer open on May 1, and currently doesn’t have a scheduled date for release.

ATLANTA — The release date on the upcoming Marvel film “Black Widow” has been shifted amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Deadline reports the Disney superhero action movie will no longer open on May 1, and currently doesn’t have a scheduled date for release.

The project joins other TV shows and projects that have been impacted by coronavirus pandemic.

In “Black Widow” former Russian spy Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johanson, meets up with her so-called family to take care of some unfinished business.

The trailer introduces us to Natasha's "sis," the character of Yelena Bolova played by actor Florence Pugh, who becomes the second Black Widow in the comic book series.

"Black Widow" takes place in the two-year time gap between "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Infinity War," and people are glad for this bit of time travel ("Avengers: End Game" spoiler ahead) because Black Widow sacrificed herself and died at the end of the last Avengers movie.

Scenes for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster were filmed throughout Georgia, and at Pinewood Studios in Fayetteville between summer and fall of 2019.

USA Today reported that some scenes were also filmed in London, back in July

“WALK” and “FIGARO” were the basecamp and production codes used while making “Black Widow”.

Both codes have been used by Marvel for shoots that have taken place in Georgia.

“What’s being filmed in Carterville?” Colleen Hansen wrote in The A-Scene Facebook group back in July. Hansen later confirmed “Someone informed it’s Black Widow’ movie. Thank yall.”
