The wondering is over. Disney has announced that Marvel’s Black Widow is being moved to July 9th instead of May 7th and that it will be offered simultaneously on Disney+ for a Premier Access fee of $29.99. “Black Widow” stars Scarlett Johansson and takes place after the events of 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War.” It was originally supposed to be released in May of last year but was delayed three times amid the pandemic.
The live action film starring Emma Stone as one of Disney’s most nefarious baddies is keeping its May 28th release date. However, it will also go to Disney+ for a $29.99 Premier Access debut at the same time.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
