Black Widow has moved release dates once again, this time to July 9, and will now premiere on Disney+ as well as in theaters. This has proven to be Disney’s preferred model during the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced movie theaters to close for months. This month, LA and New York state theaters finally reopened for the first time in months, yet Disney seems to believe that moving the latest Marvel Studios film back two months gives it the highest chance of success.
Like Raya and the Last Dragon, the latest Disney film, Black Widow will premiere on Disney+ through the premiere access model, in which subscribers pay a fee to watch the movie on top of the monthly subscription fee.
Elsewhere, Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings moves to September 3. Shang Chi previously occupied the July 9 spot before Black Widow was pushed back. There’s no word yet on whether or not Shang Chi will also have premiere access.
Until then, Marvel fans can look forward to the latest episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, as well as Loki, which premieres June 11.
