Disney today announced an upcoming slate of new films and new release dates. Most notably is Marvel’s Black Widow which has been delayed since last year due to covid issues. It was originally going to hit theaters on May 7th but that has changed. The long-awaited Black Widow MCU film will have a day and date release on July 9th.
That means the film will premiere both in theaters and also stream exclusively on Disney Plus the same day. The film will be under the Disney Plus Premier Access windows and available for a $30 rental fee.
