Black Widow is finally on Disney Plus ... months after it debuted on Disney Plus. Marvel Studios’ kickoff to Phase 4 (or the actual end of Phase 3?) was set to arrive in 2020 before the pandemic shuffle kicked it all the way to the summer of 2021, where it debuted in both theaters and on Disney Plus Premier Access for a $30 fee (much to Scarlett Johansson’s dismay). Anyone who wasn’t ready to trek to theaters or pay the add-on knew that, one day, it would hit the Disney Plus streaming service free of charge. Well, that day has finally come. It’s Black Widow time.
