Hopefully this is the last release date change for the highly-anticipated Marvel movie.

Earlier today, Marvel Studios and the Walt Disney Company announced that Black Widow would be pushed back yet again and will debut in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access on July 9th of this year.

The film was originally supposed to be released on May 1st, 2020 but because of the pandemic, this date was pushed back to November 6th, 2020. Black Widow was postponed yet again when Disney announced that the release would move to May 7th, 2021. The postponement announced today will hopefully be the last as fans have been waiting for the film since filming began in 2019.

You can either view the film in theaters or on Disney+ once the release date comes around. Those who wish to view the film on Disney+ will have to pay an extra $29.99 for Premier Access. Once Premier Access is purchased, you will always have access to the film as long as you have an active subscription.

Disney has previously followed this distribution strategy with Raya and the Last Dragon and the live-action Mulan.

The official synopsis is as follows:

At birth, the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative.

In the meantime, you can view almost the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ with a subscription.
