Was Feige dogmatic about theatrical?

Interested to know if people think Black Widow could make $519 million, the same as much the first Ant-Man. This was the lowest grossing Marvel film since they got on a roll with The Avengers in 2012.

Black Widow is a proven character getting a long-awaited sequel. Before the pandemic it was in with a chance of making $800-Billion. I guess it seems fair with any pandemic film to cut the expected haul by 50%. But the premier access thing is such a known unknown.

The real test for whether the box office is still a thing comes this weekend with the first international roll out of Godzilla v Kong. This could be the end.....

The trailers have been underwhelming, this is a prequel and a long overdue project so I doubt it would reach 600 million even without the pandemic.

The only thing it had going for it is that it's the first MCU movie in a loooong while. People might have been starving for it... but now they get their weekly fix of MCU content from WandaVision and Falcon and Winter Soldier.

No way this would’ve made a billion lol. It probably would have made about eight hundred.

Cinema is dead.

Rachel Weisz is wearing a catsuit in a new character poster. This is not a drill.

New Black Widow TV spot. I booked my tickets already. I wouldn't normally care for this, but hyped to return to an IMAX screen. Also, does anyone else think that this film is really aping the style of M:I - Fallout? I know they initially hired that film's DP, but something happened and he flew out. Nonetheless, visually it looks similar. It's certainly one of the more attractive Marvel films. I dig that grimy, overcast espionage aesthetic

This film should obviously be renamed Florence Pugh because she's seemingly the standout and is one of the few reasons I am even mildly interested in watching this film.
