Ever since the movie was announced, fans were anxiously anticipating the arrival of Marvel fan favorite, Black Widow. Due to the pandemic, the wait grew. At long last, Black Widow has landed and with great box office numbers as well as streaming, all things considered.

Did you watch the movie in theaters or catch the Disney+ release?

Tickets to a theater showtime average at $15, but while this total is less than the $30 that Disney+ asks for, the $15 don't include snacks you may crave at the movies or the time and gas money you're saving going to the movies. Not to mention, if you order it on Disney+, you can watch the movie multiple times instead of just one.

Still, if you are waiting for the movie to become available free as part of your Disney+ subscription, know that it will. Just not yet!

When Does Black Widow Come Out?

Black Widow premiered on July 9th in theaters and on Disney+ and kicks off 'Phase Four' of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, giving us a glimpse into the backstory of Scarlett Johansson's Romanoff, as she reunites with her family and sets out on a high-stakes mission to take down the 'Red Room' facility seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The action-packed film is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Since Romanoff - spoiler alert! - sacrificed her life in Avengers: Endgame to help secure one of the Infinity Stones in order to stop Thanos, this is technically a mid-quel (not quite a prequel) for her character.

So grab some popcorn, strap in, and enjoy the ride alongside one of the most elite supersoldiers in the world: here's how to stream Black Widow.

When does Black Widow come out on Disney+ for free?

The Marvel movie is not the first feature to only be available with Premier Access on Disney+, so, like all others, it'll eventually be available for free as long as you have an active Disney+ account.

Are you not sure how long the wait is? You're in luck, because we do! Thanks to Disney Plus Informer, Black Widow will be available for free 91 days after its premiere date, this puts the date at Oct. 6, 2021.

How to Watch Black Widow on Disney+

Black Widow may be one of the biggest Marvel releases of the season that moviegoers can head to the theater to see (you can find showtimes and tickets near you here), but you can also stream Black Widow at home on Disney+ with Premier Access starting July 9th.

To watch Black Widow online, you'll need to have an existing Disney+ subscription and then purchase Black Widow for $29.99 (with unlimited viewings). If you already are a Disney+ subscriber, you can just sign up for Premier Access to watch the movie and stream it as many times as you like - something you won't be able to do in the theater.

If you're not a Disney+ subscriber, you can sign up now for just $7.99 a month. Want access to even more streaming content and live TV? You'll want to go with the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle deal, which gets you subscriptions to all three services for just $13.99 total.

Can You Watch Black Widow for Free Online?

The short answer: no. Unlike Amazon Prime or Hulu, Disney+ isn't currently offering a free trial. So if you already have a Disney+ subscription, your only way to stream Black Widow online is with Premier Access for the time being.

But if you want to watch Black Widow for free down the line (and catch up on all the other MCU films before it), it's worth signing up for a Disney+ subscription now because subscribers will likely be able to stream Black Widow free online in the next few months, without needing to pay the Premier Access fee. Subscriptions to Disney+ are only $7.99 each month.

Does Disney+ Have a Free Trial?

Even though the streaming service doesn't provide a free trial with their sign-ups, we've put together a guide on how to get Disney+ free here.

Verizon offers a Disney+ on Us promotion for some of the company's Unlimited plans, which gives you six months of the streaming service free with your phone plan. It's as simple as contacting Verizon to ask how to switch over to a new plan or to see if you already have access to the platform.

Black Widow Cast, Runtime, Rating

Along with Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow herself, the film also stars Florence Pugh as Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei/the Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina, with the new trailer providing additional footage of the mysterious villain Taskmaster.

Black Widow has a runtime of 2 hours, 13 minutes, and it's rated PG-13, so you can watch all the high-speed car chases and close combat with the entire family.
