Is It Worth Paying for Marvel’s Black Widow on Disney Plus?

By Novak Bozovic / March 24, 2021

Yes - we're sure that it will be worth paying $29.99 for Marvel's Black Widow on Disney Plus for many of you. However, we're also sure that many of you will want concrete reasons to justify this expense, so let's take an objective look at this situation. So, here's when it's worth paying for Black Widow on Disney Plus (and when it isn't). 

Why It's Worth Paying $29.99 for Black Widow on Disney+?

Having to pay $29.99 to watch a single film might sound like a challenging idea to sell. Still, when it comes to Disney+, this isn't the first time a movie was released via 'Premier Access.' In the past, both 'Mulan' and 'Raya and the Last Dragon' received the same treatment – and it looks like that strategy was a success for Disney.

In other words, a vast number of Disney+ subscribers (and there are 94.9 million subscribers right now) have decided to take advantage of the previous 'Premier Access' offers. And if you think about it for a second, that really is a good strategy for everyone involved. So, let’s highlight the most prominent reasons. 

What’s the Total You’ll Have to Pay to Watch Black Widow on Disney+? 

Black Widow will be priced at $29.99, and it will be available to watch on Disney Plus starting July 9th, 2021. However, that's not exactly the entire cost of watching the movie, as you'll also need to pay for your "regular" Disney Plus subscription. 

We have a dedicated article on the total price of watching Black Widow via Disney Plus (based on if you have a monthly or yearly subscription and similar variables), so make sure to use the provided link.


Keep in mind that starting March 26th, 2021, Disney Plus will increase the prices of all of its subscription plans by $1 per month. That includes the fees of standalone Disney+ subscriptions and various Disney+ bundles

What If You Don’t Want to Pay? Will Black Widow Be Free Eventually?

As per our team's prediction, Black Widow should become available for all Disney Plus subscribers in October 2021. So, if you're willing to wait three extra months, you will eventually save $29.99 – that you'd spend on 'Premier Access' otherwise.
