Where And How To Watch Black Widow 2021 In The UK This Week

The long anticipated Black Widow is being released this week and fans can't wait to see the return of Agent Romanoff - aka Scarlett Johansson - return.

After sacrificing herself in Avengers Endgame to get hold of the soul infinity stone, this film takes fans back a step - to Romanoff's former life as a KGB assassin.

Black Widow takes place after Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War. It's a 'filling in' film, which tells fans a bit more about Agent Romanoff before her life as an Avenger.

Fans have been teased about Romanoff's dark past in previous Marvel films, including in Captain America: Winter Soldier, when Alexander Pierce threatens to expose it before he is defeated by Romanoff and the other Avengers.

Speaking to Total Film, Johansson, who plays Romanoff, said she hopes Black Widow will bring some closure to Marvel fans after Romanoff's tragic death in Endgame.

"Our goal was for them to feel satisfied with this story," she said. "That they could maybe have some resolution, I think, with this character's death, in a way. It felt like people wanted that."

If you're not ready to say goodbye to Agent Romanoff just yet, Black Widow gives fans just that little bit more of the fiery Avenger to hold onto.


Here's everything you need to know about watching the new Black Widow movie in the UK.

Will Black Widow be in UK cinemas?

Black Widow will be released in all major cinemas on Wednesday 7th July 2021 in both the UK and US.

The release date of the film has been switched several times due to the pandemic and now comes a year after the original release daIs Black Widow coming out on Disney Plus?


Yes. Black Widow will be released on Disney+ on Friday 9th July 2021.

How much is Black Widow on Disney Plus UK?


To watch it on Disney+ on 9th July, you'll need to pay for premier access, which is a one-off fee of £19.99 (on top of the monthly subscription fee of £7.99).

We imagine the film will become available to all Disney+ subscribers once it's finished in cinemas.

So it's really a choice of where you want to sit to watch the film. Do you fancy a night at the cinema? Or would you rather be watching it in your PJs at home? Either way, it's set to be another epic movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Alongside Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr will reprise his role as the legendary Tony Stark - aka Iron Man - once more in Black Widow, before leaving behind the MCU for good - gutted!

You should also expect to see:

  • David Harbour as Alexel Shostokov aka Red Guardian - Russia's answer to America's superhero, Captain America
  • Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, who was chosen to be the new Black Widow once Romanoff was no longer exclusively faithful to Russia
  • O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason - a former S.H.I.E.L.D agent with a romantic interest in Romanoff
  • Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokof - a master Russian combatant, assassin, and espionage agent.

Ever Anderson will play the young Natasha Romanoff and Violet McGraw will play the young Yelena Belova as this movie delves deep into the characters' pasts.

Black Widow has a UK age rating of 12A, meaning it's suitable for children age 12 and over, but younger viewers can watch it if they're accompanied by an adult.
