There has been a long conversation surrounding Marvel's mega film, Black Widow for a while now. Even though the film witnessed a huge release and a good opening as well, it was plagued by controversies when leading actor Scarlett Johansson went on to file a lawsuit against Disney for the simultaneous release of the film in theatres as well as on the streamer. The lawsuit claimed that Johansson was deprived of box office bonuses as hybrid release negatively affected the box office performance of the movie.
Nevertheless, the film has now been on display for everyone to see for a while now but was yet to have a release date in India. Now, the film has finalised a release date in India as it will debut on Disney+ Hotstar on 3rd September 2021.
Based on the only female superhero in the old guard of the Avengers, the film is directed by Cate Shortland. Since Natasha Romanoff or Black Widow is now deceased after her sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame, this film is set in the past. Specifically, it is set after the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War in which she finds herself on the run from the law thanks to her aid to Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes.
Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz also star in Black Widow. Eric Pearson has penned the script.
Interestingly September 3 is also the release date of Marvel’s own Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will bow exclusively in theatres in four languages: English, Hindi, Telugu, and Kannada.
