Amid the controversy between actress Scarlett Johansson and Disney, the movie Black Widow arrives on the Disney + platform at no cost to subscribers. Recall that Johansson, protagonist and executive producer of the Marvel Studios film, sued the giant Disney for her decision to launch the film on its streaming platform at the same time as in theaters.
Black Widow was published on the online service, at a cost of $ 30 in the United States and $ 12,990 in Chile, the same day it was available in theaters, July 9, 2021, which many estimate would have affected earnings. The agreement would have Black Widow established that the film had to be uploaded to the platform some time after its premiere on the big screen and not simultaneously.
However, time passed, and this Black Widow August 25 you can see the movie on Disney + without paying an additional cost. As reported by the prestigious American media The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Johansson filed a lawsuit in a court in Los Angeles, United States, claiming that Disney had violated his contract by publishing the film in streaming and in theaters at the same time.

Many believed that the film would show more of the bond between Natasha Romanoff and Clinton Barton, popularly known as Hawkeye. They still owe it to the fans to know what happened in Budapest.
