When is Black Widow set?

The timeline of Black Widow is something of an MCU sandwich. The pre-credits prologue — set during Natasha's childhood — happens in 1995. After that, the bulk of the movie takes place in 2016, right after the events of Captain America: Civil War. VultureWhen Does Black Widow Take Place in the MCU Timeline?

And for those who have kept tabs on the Disney+ Marvel series that have rolled out this year, the feature film’s post-credits scene features a character that — because Black Widow‘s release was delayed for so long — wound up being introduced on one of said TV series. (If you saw the film but not the TV series in question, here’s a quick recap of what you missed/additional insight on who that was.)

All told, the first Marvel Studios film in two years bowed to more than $215M globally, including $80M in domestic box office, $78M in international box office, and the aforementioned $60M in “Disney+ Premier Access consumer spend globally” — a metric that Disney+ had not divulged for prior releases to the streaming service’s surcharged hub.

With those U.S. tallies, Black Widow enjoyed the largest domestic box office opening since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and the largest domestic opening weekend since Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker (in December 2019).

Additionally, the combined theatrical and Disney+ Premier Access hauls makes Black Widow the only film to surpass $100 million in domestic consumer spend on opening weekend since the start of the pandemic.

“It’s incredible to see audiences enjoying Black Widow after two years without a new Marvel Studios film, and this spectacular opening weekend shows just how eager fans have been to see this beloved Avenger in her own story,” Disney Studios Content chairman Alan Bergman said in a statement. “There’s no question it’s been worth the wait – [director] Cate Shortland, Scarlett Johansson, and the Marvel Studios team have delivered an exceptional film that continues a legacy of creative excellence as the Marvel Cinematic Universe expands and enters a new era.”

In “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.

“Once again, Marvel has delivered an exceptional film to the delight of fans worldwide with Black Widow achieving numerous milestones in the current marketplace,” said Kareem Daniel, Chairman, Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution. “Black Widow’s strong performance this weekend affirms our flexible distribution strategy of making franchise films available in theaters for a true cinematic experience and, as COVID concerns continue globally, providing choice to consumers who prefer to watch at home on Disney+.”

Along with the launch on Disney+ with Premier Access, “Black Widow” premiered in theaters over the weekend. The film brought in $80 million at the box office domestically and $78 million internationally, making it the largest domestic box office opening since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Disney doesn’t often share specifics about viewer data and profits from individual streaming titles, so this is an interesting look at how a simultaneous launch in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access has worked out for the company. The next film to make a theater and Premier Access debut will be “Jungle Cruise” with Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt on July 30.
