Black Widow movie would have been released by now and even streaming on Disney Plus service, if it wasn’t for the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans are eagerly waiting to watch Black Widow as the trailer hints that there will be cool action scenes and everyone is already comparing it with Captain America: Winter Soldier and Atomic Blondie.

However, no one knows when will Black Widow come out in theaters or straight to Disney+ like Mulan and Soul. There are some vague hints on the Black Widow movie release platform from Marvel President Kevin Fiege and here are more details on everything.
Will Black Widow come out on Disney Plus Streaming Service?
Kevin Fiege says that he is not sure whether Black Widow will release in theaters or it could have a Disney+ premiere at this point. Fiege says that is too early to decide anything and asking him the same questions every week won’t help.
If I had a crystal ball, I’d look into it and tell you. I don’t, Our long lead plan was to have the MCU and the storytelling woven between weekly episodic big swings on Disney+ and into the feature big swings in theatres. – Kevin Fiege
It means that even Kevin Fiege is not sure of Black Widow’s release plans or simply don’t want to share things at this moment. HBO Max did a same-day premiere of Wonder Woman in theaters and the streaming service, and it kind of worked out well. It could be possible that Disney takes the same risk and releases Black Widow on streaming and theaters on the same day, but that would hinder their future plans too.
Black Widow Release Date for Theaters and Disney+
Black Widow release date for theaters is currently reported as of May 7, 2021, as per the sources. There is hardly any chance that the movie comes out on that day as it was just a placeholder when the release date was postponed over the COVID-19 pandemic. The vaccine is rolling out and things are getting better, let us hope that Black Widow releases worldwide on the big screen around mid-2021, so that we can look forward to the rest of the MCU movies.
Black Widow will surely release on Disney+ too, but that would be after 3-4 months its theatrical release.
