The Coronavirus might be stopping most of us from watching Marvel Studio’s Black Widow, but for NBA players they might get to see it first.
NBA players and their families will reportedly get to see Black Widow and other unreleased Disney movies as part of the new NBA at Disney World plan.
Both the NBA and Marvel movie Black Widow have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The NBA stopped playing in March, with virtually every other sports organization following suit. Meanwhile, Black Widow, originally scheduled for a May 1 release, was one of countless movies delayed. It’s currently set for November 6, which will hopefully give Marvel fans enough time to visit movie theaters with confidence.
In fact, that’s just one of the many perks players might encounter as the basketball season resumes at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Disney World Resort outside of Orlando, FL.
Sportswriter Keith Smith outlined a list of procedures players and staff will have to adhere to since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is still in effect. “Per Walt Disney World Sources: Disney will make movies available for players and their families (once they join),” he tweeted. “This is likely to include movies that have not been released to the general public, including Marvel’s Black Widow.”
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widowstars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason and Rachel Weisz. The film arrives in theaters Nov. 6.
