The NBA has decided to finish their shortened season with all the games being played at Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Florida. While games are played at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, at night, players will stay in one of the resorts many hotels. Families of the players are expected to eventually join them. Once they do, Disney is expected to use one of their Marvel Studios resources to entertain them.
That resource is the delayed Black Widow film. According to Yahoo Sports NBA writer Keith Smith, players and their families could become the first people in the general public to see the beginning of the MCU’s Phase 4.
There has not been a time more in my life that I wish I had a brother or cousin that played in the NBA. Like most diehard MCU fans, I would pay a lot of money to see that movie months before it’s release. Originally intended to open in May, Black Widow was delayed to November 6th because of the Coronavirus.
