David Harbour thinks we shouldn't have to wait for theaters to be open to see Black Widow. He thinks we should see it now. The actor has thrown his support behind just putting the movie out on VOD services, instead of waiting for theaters to reopen after the current situation is over, as he told The Independent.
"My publisher also sent me an email saying Black Widow had been postponed and I think I replied 'shocker.' Wouldn't it be fun if we all could just stream it? But that's above my pay grade."
You know, I was thinking about this the other day. What is to stop them from putting it out for rental now, and then when theaters do open back up putting it out anyway? That type of release wouldn't work for every film, but I am sure it would for this one. Even David Harbour knows this. MCU fans that just can't wait can enjoy it, then those same ones will go see it again in theaters, and you will get those who are fine with being patient. Seems like a win for everyone to me.
Black Widow, directed by Cate Shortland, stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O. T. Fagbenle, Rachel Weisz, and Ray Winstone. It currently doesn't have a release date.
