Heads up, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. Tickets for Black Widow are now officially on sale. Additionally, pre-orders to watch the movie on Disney+ opening weekend are available as well. This is the first time that an MCU movie will be playing in theaters since 2019, making it quite the major event.
Marvel and Disney recently released advanced tickets for those who wish to see Natasha Romanoff’s first solo adventure in the MCU on the big screen. On the same day it hits theaters, the film will also be available on Disney+. Through the Premier Access program, those who choose to watch it at home can do so for an additional $30.
To go along with the presale tickets a new clip has been released as well. Check it out.
Here is the synopsis for Black Widow.
“In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller ‘Black Widow,’ Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.”
This has been a long time coming. The movie, which sees Scarlett Johansson reprising her role in the MCU once again, has been delayed several times. It was originally supposed to be the first Phase 4 movie to arrive back in May 2020. But the pandemic forced theaters to close for months on end and the box office has only recently begun to recover.
Avengers: Endgame was released in 2019, going on to become one of the biggest movies of all time. Spider-Man: Far From Home followed. But that was the last time a Marvel Studios movie played in theaters. Though The New Mutants did end up getting released last August. However, it is not part of the MCU. And, for what it may be worth, the movie performed very poorly at the box office.
Black Widow was directed by Cate Shortland. The cast also includes David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz.
Other MCU movies coming our way this year include Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Next year will see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels arrive in theaters.
Black Widow hits theaters on July 9.
