Long-range box office projections see Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow solo film earning upwards of $90 million in theaters over its opening weekend.
Black Widow will be the first Marvel movie to hit theaters in two years after several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It now looks like Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will finally arrive in theaters this July, but the film will also be available to watch on Disney Plus with the $30 Premier Access fee on the same day.
While the film is still weeks away, the social media embargo for the Marvel film has already been lifted, and long-range tracking from Box Office Pro predicts the Scarlett Johansson-led film will earn $60-90 million in its opening weekend. Box Office Pro also currently sees Black Widow grossing $155-225 million during its domestic run in theaters.
