“Black Widow,” the highly anticipated Marvel film starring longtime Avenger Scarlett Johansson, will premiere on July 9 in theaters and on Disney Plus. To stream the movie while it’s still playing in theaters, Disney Plus subscribers need to pay an extra $30 Premier Access fee.
The film takes place before the events of the latest Marvel films, with Johansson’s titular character dealing with her past as an assassin for hire. Florence Pugh plays a younger assassin who received the same training as Black Widow, while “Stranger Things” star David Harbour plays a Russian hero named Red Guardian.
“Black Widow” will be the first Marvel film released in theaters since “Spider-Man: Far From Home” debuted in July 2019. Disney originally planned to release the film during summer 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the premiere for more than a year. “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is scheduled for a September 3 theatrical release, and will introduce a new Marvel hero played by Simu Liu.
Tickets for the theatrical release of “Black Widow” are on sale now; you can also pay in advance for Premier Access on Disney Plus.
