There have been a lot of people that have reached out to us asking how they could watch Black Widow online or on Disney Plus.
It was revealed back at Disney’s Investor’s Day Presentation that the movie would be released in cinemas.
They have, for the most part, stuck to that promise.
However, the film was also released on Disney Plus, but for a price and also it wasn’t released in every single market.
So, in North America, Disney Plus subscribers can pay a rather hefty fee of $29.99 to watch the movie from the comfort of their own homes.
Should you watch Black Widow at home or at the cinema?
That said, it’s not the same in every location around the world.
For me, for instance, I cannot pay to watch Black Widow on Disney Plus since I live in France.
Over here in France, Black Widow is only available to watch in cinemas, which I am actually OK with.
I went to my local cinema for the first time since I went to see Tenet and I had a great time.
I ended up paying €19.99 for two tickets to see the latest Marvel movie.

Where can you watch Black Widow online?
So, right now the online place where you can watch Black Widow online legally is Disney Plus.
In order to watch it via the streaming platform, you have to be a Disney Plus subscriber and live in a location where the movie is available to purchase via Premier Access.
You can maybe find places to download the movie, but I won’t go into that here as it’s not legal.
I know that there are multiple places in Europe where the movie isn’t available on Disney Plus via Premier Access.
France is one of those places, and I believe Italy is also.
As far as I can tell, people living in the UK can purchase the movie on Disney Plus via Premier Access.
Black Widow earned $60 million worldwide in its opening weekend via Disney Plus Premier Access alone, which is very impressive.
That means a lot of people opted to just buy the movie and watch it from the comfort of their own homes.
I’m more of a cinema man, and I will also support my local cinemas as much as I can.
That said, it is nice to have the option.
Black Widow is available to watch on Disney Plus via Premier Access
If you happen to live in an area where the movie isn’t available to purchase, you try to use a VPN such as Express VPN.
Now, I tried to do that over here in France, but it didn’t seem to work for me.
I do wonder whether Disney has blocked all VPN access to their streaming platform.
I wasn’t sure whether that was possible, but I just get a black screen whenever I try to access Disney Plus using a VPN on my laptop.
Also, I wouldn’t really recommend watching a movie like Black Widow using a laptop.
It’s the sort of film that should be watched on a big screen in a dark room.
