UK Black Widow fans are in for a bit of a treat, as they’ll be able to see the Marvel movie earlier than the US.
Disney has confirmed to Digital Spy that the upcoming solo outing for Scarlett Johansson‘s superhero now has a UK release date of October 28 (assuming cinemas are open by then).
That’s over a week earlier than the other side of the pond on November 6 – though the earlier release doesn’t come as a huge surprise, as Marvel movies tend to come out earlier in the UK.
Instead, it now occupies the November 6 spot originally occupied by The Eternals, which itself has been postponed to 2021. This has had a domino effect on the rest of Marvel‘s upcoming releases, as they’ve all been pushed back too.
“I was scared because my Russian accent was going to be out there and I didn’t know what it sounded like,” she said. “I’m also playing a character who no-one’s seen before but they’ve read about her. I didn’t know whether people were going to hate me!”
She also spoke of her worries about joining the MCU, adding: “When you think of Marvel, it’s big and daunting. Especially being a relatively small actor to look at it and go, ‘Oh! I’m going to be a part of this’, that’s a big decision.”
Black Widow has an October 28, 2020 release date in the UK and November 6 release date in the US.
