Placing itself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline smack-bang in the middle of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, ex-KGB agent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) has exiled herself somewhere in Norway. Soon, though, she is tracked down by Yelena (Florence Pugh), fellow Widow and surrogate sister. What does she want? Assistance in dismantling the very Black Widow program that shaped them into deadly assassins, of course.
Along the way they’re reunited with their adoptive parents, Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour), as well as facing off the overseer of the Black Widow program, Dreykov, and villain, Taskmaster.
Delivering a much sought after backstory to Natasha Romanoff’s character, it’s full of all the action-packed, explosive scenes we’ve come to expect from a Marvel superhero movie.
Initially arriving on Disney Plus Premier Access, you’ll now be able to watch Black Widow online with a regular Disney Plus subscription. If you haven’t already, get started by signing up now so you can stream it from anywhere.

Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price.
