Disney Cancels May Releases Including “Black Widow,” “David Copperfield,” Already Postponed “Woman in the Window”


There’s no spring time for Disney.

They’ve removed their main releases from May dates. Those include Marvel’s “Black Widow,” Searchlight’s “Private Life of David Copperfield,” and the already postponed from a previous date, “Woman in the Window.”

Now no one’s in the window.

“David Copperfield,” directed by Armando Iannucci, starring Dev Patel, is so good and so funny, I kind of wish they’d put it on streaming. But it will be worth the wait in theaters.

Meantime, Universal has released “Cats” on digital platforms. They obviously hate us. No, just kidding. Watch it, it’s not so bad.
