After facing several agonising delays, Black Widow finally hit cinemas around the world back in July and was controversially released on Disney+ via Premier Access at the same time.

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow fills in the missing chapters we’ve yet to uncover about the enigmatic Natasha Romanoff and her history in the Red Room.

Pursued by a relentless force from her past, Natasha must face her complex history as a spy and the messy relationships she left behind before she became a linchpin in the Avengers.
