The Black Widow April 24 Release Date is a Result of Wikipedia Vandalism

This week Marvel fans around the internet are panicking when Google began showing an April 24, 2020 release date for Black Widow. Unfortunately this is just another case of Wikipedia Vandalism that Google has crawled to show incorrect information. The same exact thing happened this time last year when someone vandalized Wikipedia to make it look like Hugh Jackman would appear in Avengers: Endgame.

While watchful people have since fixed Wikipedia, you can see the April 24, 2020 vandalism looking at the revisions of the page. Someone set that release date, Google crawled the page to display the wrong release date, and then someone revised it back to the correct release date yesterday:

As the Wikipedia page was just corrected yesterday, it’ll probably take a few days for Google’s search listings to update to the correct release date, which remains May 1, 2020.
