Black Widow released earlier this year theatrically and on Disney Plus’ Premium Access on July 9th. The film made $379.2 Million in theaters on a $200 Million Budget. The film also reportedly made $60 Million on Disney’s Premium Access, though those numbers are harder to verify.
Finally after nearly 3 months the film will finally be available for all to see on Disney Plus without additional cost on October 6th. The film has also been available physically on DVD & Blu-Ray since September 14th.
The film was seen as a disappointment for Marvel and Disney, opening at only $80 Million on opening weekend. This of course can be attributed to the simultaneous release on both theaters and Disney Plus, which caused a major lawsuit between lead actress Scarlett Johansson and Disney over box office royalties being affected.
Scarlett Johansson and Disney recently settled the lawsuit and apparently the two parties still plan to work together on future projects. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings released in August and did better theatrically due to the Disney Premier Access being purposefully delayed.
Black Widow serves as a prequel and is seen as one of the last films that ties directly to the original era of the MCU. Set before the events of Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame we learn about Black Widow’s secretive past and where she comes from. We meet her misfit comrades aka her “family” as they take on the villain Taskmaster.
Are you planning on streaming the film? Or will you buy the film physically to add to your collection?
