New Poster for July 9th’s Black Widow
Yesterday, The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios announced that Black Widow will be released in theaters and on Disney+ simultaneously on July 9th, 2021. And excitingly, True Believers, industry journals are reporting that the movie release is locked in, and there’s no changing it now! Marvel dropped a new movie poster featuring Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff in her new white leather suit to honor the occasion.
Natasha Won’t See Her Family Until July
Black Widow was originally going to be released in theaters in May 2020 to kick of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, because of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on theatrical releases, the film has been pushed back on more than one occasion, first to November 2020 then May 2021, before getting its current release date: July 9th, 2021.
For a long time Marvel Studios still insisted that Black Widow would hit theaters in May, but despite this, many fans expected the film to be pushed back again as the safety of attending movies remains uncertain at this time. Now, with the film’s release date officially moved to July 2021, the movie will also be available on Disney+ Premiere Access the same day as its in theaters.
Disney+ Premiere Access was used to released Mulan and Raya the Last Dragon in a similar manner. As these films cost so much to make, for example, Black Widow cost $200 million, they’re reliant on ticket sales to turn a profit, according to the Los Angeles Times.
