Disney is reportedly still planning for Black Widow to be released in theaters and not on Disney Plus amidst Warner Bros. moving their 2021 slate to HBO Max.

The movie industry changed last week when Warner Bros. announced that they will be putting their entire 2021 slate on HBO Max and in theaters for a simultaneous release model that will start with Wonder Woman 1984. With the earth-shattering news, many quickly looked to Disney and other movie studios to see how they would respond. Disney has already moved several of their films to Disney Plus like Soul and Mulan (with a $20 fee). With major tentpoles like The Suicide Squad hitting streaming next summer, many have predicted that Disney will announce something similar for Black Widow at their four-hour Investors Day presentation set for tomorrow.

According to The New York Times, it’s expected that Black Widow will remain a theatrical release while the live-action Pinocchio remake and Peter Pan & Wendy will head to streaming. The Investors Day presentation is also expected to showcase footage from Marvel Studios’ upcoming Phase 4 slate and the announcement of more Star Wars content for Disney Plus.

What do you think will be revealed at Disney’s Investors Day tomorrow? Sound-off in the comments section below!

Here is the official synopsis for Black Widow:

In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.

Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Eric Pearson based on a story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.
