Recent reports reveal that the movie will the streamers after a 45-day theatrical run. This means the movie which was released on September 3rd should be available on October 17th, 2021.

Normally, the movies would have a theatrical run of 90 days before the pandemic. Black Widow when released on Disney Plus, it had a successful opening weekend at the box office.
It made $90 Million Dollars through cinemas, and $60 Million Dollars through Disney Plus. The numbers changed the next weekend which was impacted by the streaming release. With Scarlett Johansson sueing the Disney streaming platform over the hybrid release.
