So that Disney + It is the only thing that is giving them joy. That's why you could already see Mulan and it will come Soul from Pixar, so it's still unclear what will happen to Black widow.

"My understanding is that old-school executives don't want to go overboard with their big movies, so they announced that they were pushing Black Widow and other movies through 2021." Explain.
“I don't think they appreciate the tiger on their tail. That is, the value they can generate by moving to a subscription model, which has been adopted by everyone, from Microsoft to Amazon ”. Loeb continued. “It is so valuable. What Netflix has is this huge subscriber base that allows it to invest in a huge amount of content and pay for it to get more subscribers. Disney isn't there yet, but they need to get there as quickly as possible. "
Yes investors like this continue to pressure DisneyThey probably have to listen, and it really feels like they're trying to hold onto something that sadly is already becoming a part of the past. Cinema movies will increasingly go to streaming and if they yield with Black widow, it can cause a contagion effect whose result for now is unpredictable, but could change the entire industry for the worse.
