Here’s how much Black Widow cost to make and how much it’ll probably need to make to break even. The film was originally set to be released in May 2020 but was repeatedly postponed owing to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s finally here, and it’ll be released in cinemas and streamed on Disney+ at the same time.
According to the most recent launch weekend forecasts, it would gross between $80-90 million in its first three days, exceeding F9’s current total. The reported production budget for Black Widow is in excess of $200 million, which is comparable to the costs for MCU Phase 3 films Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It actually cost more to produce than the rest of Phase 3’s non-Avengers films.
Captain America: Civil War ($230 million) is the lone exception, with an Avengers-style ensemble cast. The $200 million budget for Black Widow does not include marketing expenses. To break even, it would need to gross around $400 million globally, according to the conventional rule of thumb (production budget times 2 Equals break-even point). Even if the movie office hasn’t entirely recovered from the pandemic, Black Widow has an excellent chance of exceeding that figure.
