"We've already delayed Black Widow a couple of times, we didn't want to delay it again," he said recently.

"Yet, at the same time, we always knew there was a risk that exhibition wasn't going to be fully developed or consumers wouldn't want to go back and sit in theatres. So, we realised we had to sort of prime the pump and give theatrical exhibition a chance.

"We couldn't put all of our eggs in the theatrical exhibition basket because we knew that in the weeks leading up to the decision that the domestic market was not coming back. And it's still fairly weak. So, we're very confident that we made the right call there."

Black Widow is out in cinemas and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 9.
