The film was originally slated to release in May 2020, but the pandemic delayed the release. Now, the film will make its way to theaters on July 9, 2021, but you can also find it on Disney+ with its Premier Access service on the same date.

You can stream Black Widow when it is released along with other Marvel films and series on Disney+.

Marvel’s ‘Black Widow,’ ‘Cruella’ to debut theatrically and on Disney+ this summer
Disney+ is home to content from Marvel, Walt Disney Studios films, Disney Channel original series, Pixar films and shorts, Star Wars films and series, and National Geographic titles. The platform is constantly releasing new content, such as The Mandalorian, Raya and the Last Dragon, upcoming series like Star Wars: The Bad Batch, and more.
What is Black Widow about?
Black Widow will explore the story of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) in a prequel to the events of Avengers: Infinity War and follow the title character as she navigates the consequences of her past and her journey toward a heroic future. The film stars Johansson alongside Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff, and David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov (Red Guardian).
Black Widow’s solo film is long-awaited by MCU fans, and it’s possible that the events of the film may shed light on post-Endgame events throughout Phase Four of the MCU. During Avengers: Endgame, Natasha Romanoff’s journey in the MCU (seemingly) comes to an end as the crew aims to defeat Thanos. It will be interesting to see Natasha’s earlier journey in that context, especially given that it looks like she (or someone that very much resembles her, possibly an alternate timeline version of the character) also appears in the trailer for the upcoming series Loki.
Black Widow is preceded by Marvel series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki, which will premiere on June 11, 2021. Black Widow will be available for Disney+ subscribers for $29.99 when it’s released to Disney+ on July 9, 2021.
