‘Black Widow’ and ‘Cruella’ will now premiere simultaneously on Disney+ and in theaters


Despite more and more movie theaters reopening across the country, studios are still hedging their bets about releasing their tentpole films strictly in cinemas.

Disney has announced both “Black Widow” and “Cruella” will premiere in theaters and on Disney+ at the same time, according to Deadline.

“Cruella,” which stars Emma Stone in the titular role as the legendary Dalmatian-hating villainess, will launch as planned on May 28th, while Marvel’s “Black Widow” is being pushed from May 7th to the new date of July 9th.

The two films will be available to stream on Disney+ with Premier Access, which usually requires an additional $30 fee for subscribers.
