I would have been happier if they used an actual skull-face mask, instead of a painted motorcycle helmet. They probably didn't want the audience to confuse him with the Red Skull.

No surprise, but BLACK WIDOW has been pulled from the release schedule.  


Interesting to see how this all shakes out.  The entire end of March and all of April slate (save for the TROLLS sequel which is set to hit VOD day and date with a release in theaters that are still open) has been delayed. Release dates are taken up years in advance, so what has to move when you've got blockbusters like A QUIET PLACE II, BLACK WIDOW and NO TIME TO LIVE trying to find a place to live?  And if it's a potential 12 weeks, the longest AMC is projecting to be closed at the moment, that's mid-June and affects a raft of other films. 

Interesting times...

My local cinema has announced it is to close for a
while. I`m guessing that smaller films may go straight
to streaming/pay per view leaving space for the
blockbusters in future schedules. The longer this goes
on, the film companies will have to adapt, as will other
industries.

Yes, Universal's decision is interesting but they also open themselves up to pirating..to the extreme.  If I can rent the movie, set up my 4K phone in a perfect environment to capture said video and then pirate it for pennies, that's the loss in revenue studios are facing. Yes, I think theater chains need studios more than studios need chains, but there is a reason chains exist.  Sure, you can also pirate a film in any theatre in the world, but it's going to be with audience noise in a crowded theatre.  But given the pristine environment of home video?  No way is Disney going to do that with BW.  Universal and TROLLS: WORLD TOUR?  Sure. The other movies they've released in February that are already out of the gate?  Absolutely.  A currently unreleased Marvel event film?  Not a chance in hell.
