Fans have long been awaiting the release of Black Widow, which was originally set to premiere in theaters in March 2020 but was pushed back several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The film is set after 2016's Captain America: Civil War and sees Johansson's Natasha Romanoff on the run. The movie also stars Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbour. 

The news comes as Regal Cinemas' parent company, Cineworld, announced that its movie theaters will reopen in the U.S. on April 2

"We have long-awaited this moment," Mooky Greidinger, the chief executive of Cineworld, said in a statement obtained by The Wrap. "With capacity restrictions expanding to 50% or more across most U.S. states, we will be able to operate profitably in our biggest markets."

The second-largest theater chain in the nation, behind AMC Theatres, initially closed its theaters in March 2020, before reopening and later closing again in October.
