The release date for the highly-expected Marvel Cinematic Universe entry ‘Black Widow‘ has been officially announced, finally.
The superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, which is also the 24th film in MCU, will be released through streaming platform Disney+ and limited theaters on July 9! According to the latest updates, the film, starring Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz, will focus on the past of the titular character, ‘Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow.’
Is Black Widow free on Disney plus?
As stated by DisneyPlus, ‘Black Widow’ will be open for the users who pay an additional $29.99; as fans might remember, the streaming platform did the same “additional cost” thing for other features including ‘Soul,’ ‘Raya and the Last Dragon,’ and ‘Mulan.’ So, Cate Shortland-directed film will be available under the “Premier Access” banner.
As fans might remember, Marvel Studios previously announced that the highly-anticipated film, where ‘Stranger Things‘ actor David Harbour will appear as ‘Alexei Shostakov / Red Guardian,’ the Russian super-soldier, was set to be released in May 2020. However, most likely many projects, the release date was delayed three times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Regarding the theatrical release, the fans are still indecisive; even though the vaccination is going well in the United States, a great number of countries have been struggling with Covid-19 vaccine shortages. What’s more, although it was officially declared that ‘Black Widow’ would open in theatres in India on July 9, it is doubtful how many people will go there to see the movie amid the coronavirus pandemic peak.
