Disney Plus announced that Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow” will be available to all Disney Plus subscribers beginning Wednesday.
In addition to Scarlett Johansson, who reprises the role of Black Widow, the action feature stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz. Cate Shortland directed, Kevin Feige produced and Eric Pearson penned the screenplay. The film unravels the mystery of Natasha Romanoff’s past and her path to becoming the spy and assassin she is today.
“Black Widow” opened on July 9 after several postponements and was the first movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to open in theaters in two years. It was also available via Premier Access, allowing subscribers to rent the film for $30. Though the film grossed $80 million in theaters in its opening weekend, the number fell short of pre-pandemic Marvel standards. In addition, Disney revealed that “Black Widow” had grossed more than $125 million on streaming.
