PSA: Black Widow Is Now Streaming for Free On Disney+

No Comments

The time has finally come, Marvel fans. Black Widow has arrived on Disney+, free of charge for subscribers. While the movie was previously available through Disney+ Premier access, it is no longer going to cost subscribers anything extra. Natasha Romanoff’s long-awaited solo adventure is just a few clicks away. 



Scarlett Johansson has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2010’s Iron Man 2. Yet, she had never been afforded the opportunity to have her own movie. This, despite her appearing in all four Avengers movies, and both Captain America sequels. After a year of delays, that was finally amended in July when Black Widow arrived. Now, it’s got a new home on Disney+, potentially opening it up to a whole new batch of viewers. 


Here’s 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.”


The movie was directed by Cate Shortland. At the box office, it earned $379. While that number is low, much of that seemingly had to do with Disney’s decision to release the movie through Premier Access as well. People had the option to watch it at home for $30 on opening weekend. Ultimately, that paved the way for a lawsuit between Johansson and Disney, which was recently settled. But the situation did get ugly. 


This is, more than likely, going to serve as Johansson’s swan song in the MCU. As fans will surely recall, Natasha met her demise during the events of Avengers: Endgame so that Hawkeye could get the Soul Stone. Black Widow serves as a prequel, taking place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. So, unless we get another prequel, or unless the studio revives her somehow, this is the end for the fan-favorite in this universe. 


The cast also includes David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz. And we’ll be seeing more of Pugh as Yelena Belova, as she is poised to appear in the upcoming Hawkeye series, which arrives on Disney+ later this year. Whether or not she will end up essentially picking up the Black Widow baton in the MCU going forward remains to be seen.
