Black Widow is the operative name for Natasha Romanova, at birth she was given to the KGB, which groomed her to become the ultimate operative.

News from around the web

After Mulan and Black Widow got delayed Disney didn't announce new release dates, but today we get the new dates as July 24th 2020 and November 6th 2020.

Mulan

Mulan starring Jet Li and Donnie Yen got pulled with literally a couple of weeks to go before it hit cinemas, but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and cinemas closed and the release was pulled.

Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh was set to kick of the summer movie schedule with a release of May 1st.

With the new release dates we can start looking forward to the live action remake and the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4.

Interestingly July 24th is the current release date of Disney's own Jungle Cruise movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, so expect a move of that to maybe Christmas?

**UPDATE** The release date of Jungle Cruise has moved and will now get a release on 30th July 2021.

This is all providing the current stay at home is over and the cinemas have reopened.

Director Patty Jenkins has moved the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 to August 14th 2020 because the best way to see the film is on the big screen.

Movie theatres across the world are currently closed because the the COVID-19 pandemic which means that many of the smaller establishments are suffering though no income.

In a heart felt tweet she reiterates how important movie theatres are and the move of release date is so it can help the movie theatre industry once the pandemic os over.

Many of the released for MArch and April have been put on hold or to a later date including A Quiet Place Part II, No Time To Die, Black Widow and Mulan to name a few.

There is no time line of when the social restrictions set by global governments will be lifted and when cinemas will be able to open again.

As a result of this the weekend box office results have also been suspended.

A new poster has been released for upcoming movie Black Widow which you can see to the right.

Starring among others Scarlett Johansson and Rachel Weisz the movie is directed by Cate Shortland and it has a release date of 1st May 2020.

Black Widow is the operative name for Natasha Romanova, at birth she was given to the KGB, which groomed her to become the ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her. This is her origins movie where we find out about her 'family' and her struggle to find her identity in Russia.

Check out the movie page for more information on this film.

Marvel kick off 2020 with Scarlett Johansson starring in the origin movie Black Widow and today we get the first trailer.

The movie is one of the more anticipated films on the Marvel/Disney slate especially considering how much of a fan favourite the character is.

We get to meet her family in the trailer and it looks like there is action aplenty as well as comedy, but how it fits in with the overall Avengers arc will be interesting.

Not long to wait now as the film is released on 1st May 2020 but you can check out the trailer now.

Being held in Anaheim California August 23rd - 25th the Ultimate Disney Fan Event is held by the company on a bi-annual basis and gives the fans news on the latest movies, TV shows and theme parks.

What can we expect for this years event? With a new Star Wars movie around the corner, the end of the phase 3 Marvel Cinematic Universe, a new Frozen movie on the horizons and an area of the Disney theme parks dedicated to Star Wars!

Lucasfilm (Star Wars)

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

There may not be a new trailer coming out of the D23 expo for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker but we can expect a behind the scenes reel, as we did with the last 2 films, with new footage and most likely, and just maybe we'll get an official movie poster.

There may also be some news on the new trilogy of films that are set for release every other year from December 2023.

There has been a feeling that we have had too much Star Wars in recent years so after this years movie expect the whole franchise to go quiet until the promotion starts for he 2023 movie.

Disney are releasing their own streaming service this year, Disney+, and the Star Wars Universe ig going to feed into this a lot over the years between The Rise Of Skywalker and the next cinematic adventure including the much anticipated The Mandalorian for which there will likely be a trailer.

Lets not also forget that other Lucasfilms franchise, Indianan Jones. The next movie has already been delayed but is going ahead with Harrison Ford, little is known but with a whole area dedicated to the film studio there could well be some mention of the original tomb raider.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

<span class='green'><u><i><b>Black Widow</b></i></u></span>

The MCU phase 3 went out with a massive bang and Avengers: Engame became the top grossing movie of all time and Spider-Man: Far from home grossed over a Billion at the box office, so the phase 4 has a lot to live up to.

The first spanner in the works is the breakdown of the Disney and Sony (who own Spider-Man) partnership so don't expect to hear anything from the Spidey franchise, but with the acquisition of Fox by Disney every other Marvel character can now be used by Disney so expect to see the likes of X-Men and Fantastic 4 cropping up, not that we'll hear anything at D23.

There should be more news on the confirmed project like Shang-Chi, Black Widow and Thor: Love And Thunder, maybe there will even be a trailer for the Scarlett Johansson starring movie which is the first of these movie out the door next March.

Again the Disney+ streaming service, due for launch this year, will be a major part of the MCU going forward with the prospect of TV series adding to the Universe as well as movies.

Avatar

Avatar logo

One of the properties that Disney aquired when it bought Fox was James Camerons former highest grossing movie Avatar and all planed sequels.

They have been a long time coming but with the opening of the Pandora area (the planet in the movie) in Animal Kingdom in Orlando Disney are keen to get the sequels made and have announced they will be released bi-yearly fron 2022.

There will be an Avatar area as the expo and the possibility of more information of the sequels which are being made back to back.

Walt Disney Animation Studios And Pixar

Frozen II

Lets not forget the animated Disney Movies! On the horizon is Frozen II, which is kind of a big deal, the original film is still the true highest grossing animated movie of all time (not counting the new The Lion King movie) and became a cultural phenomenon back in 2013.

The trailers have promised much and we could see more footage from the film which is set for release at the end of 2019.

It has been announced that there will be a Moana area coming to Epcot in the revamp of the Walt Disney World park, this could be a sign that there is a sequel to the 2016 animated movie.

Pixar will also be showing off its future movies Onwards and Soul at a presentation during the weekend.

Little has beed seen from these movies from the digital animated arm of the company except for a trailer for Onwards, so fans are excited to see more and this is the perfect platform.

There is of course much more that will come out of the Expo so come back regularly to get all the latest news.
