Chapek Says “Flexibility” is Key for Release of Black Widow

There has many questions surrounding the release of Black Widow. During the quarterly investor call, the Walt Disney Companies CEO Bob Chapek was asked about the release of Marvel’s “Black Widow” and future releases on Disney+, either for subscribers or by Premier Access. In his response, it became clear that flexibility will be key.

Bob Chapek confirmed that they are still planning on releasing Marvel’s “Black Widow” at cinemas, however, they are constantly watching what’s happening and are willing to be flexible with its release.

“We are still intending Black Widow to be a theatrical release. We will be watching the reopening of theaters and sentiment about consumers returning to theaters, and [we will adapt accordingly]. But for now, we are intending for it to be a theatrical release.”

He confirmed that “Mulan” Premier Access was considered a success, which is why they are trying it again with “Raya and the Last Dragon” on March 5th.  I suspect the success of “Raya” will impact the decision for “Black Widow”.

During the same question, Bob Chapek said they are still going to be flexible with releases for the rest of the year, taking things on a case by case bases as the situation changes.  Some might be released on Premier Acces and some might be moved directly to Disney+ like “Soul”.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
