The number one question fans have been wondering is, will Black Widow be on Disney+? Kevin Feige doesn’t give a straight answer if the film will be on the streaming service once it releases.
Here’s is what Kevin Feige told Deadline:
If I had a crystal ball, I’d look into it and tell you. I don’t. All I can tell you is that for the past three years since Bob Iger brought me into his office and talked about a streaming platform that would become Disney+ and asked us to start working on programs for it. 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 theaters. It’s my great hope that that continues. Don’t ask me week by week what is going to happen in this world, I have no idea and don’t want to guess. Everything we’ve done at Marvel Studios has been based in “Ok, if everything goes perfectly, here’s what we’d like to do.” And until this past year, things have gone remarkably well. And it’s my hope that the world gets back on track and we all get back into theaters, and that people will see and experience week by week for the low monthly fee of Disney+ of what we’re bringing there, and then be excited to get together with people again in real life and sit with strangers and share an experience on the big screen.
We won’t truly know if Black Widow will be on Disney+ when it releases in theaters on May 7, 2021. The only way we would know is next month when we’re closer to the release date. I highly doubt Disney would push Black Widow again, especially when it was supposed to be released on May 1, 2020. Maybe Disney is trying to figure out how to sell it on Disney+ after what happened with Mulan, which people did not react positively to. Guess we’ll see in March or April about the future of Black Widow.
