Where to Watch Black Panther
Before you go see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in theatres, you can catch the original Black Panther film on Disney Plus.
The first Black Panther movie, along with every previous Marvel Studios film starring franchise characters (including Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame), is available to stream on Disney Plus for subscribers.
Where to Watch Black Panther 2
Black Panther 2 is only being released in cinemas, so if you want to see it you'll have to make plans to do so. You should be able to locate convenient showtimes at your local movie theatre chain, as the picture will be released in thousands of locations across the United States.
What's the Status of Wakana Forever's Debut on Disney Plus?
There is, alas, no foolproof method for predicting when a Disney movie will become available on a certain streaming service. Still, that doesn't mean guessing is a waste of time. It takes about 45 days for a picture to make the transition from cinemas to streaming sites.
That hasn't always been the case, however, with previous MCU flicks. For instance: It took Disney+ 64 days to add Thor: Love and Thunder. Eternals and Shang-Chi, on the other hand, have been in the can for a lot closer to 70 days. In contrast, Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness was added to Disney+ after the standard 45-day delay.
The dispersed release dates for Disney+ MCU films make it difficult to predict at this time if Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will fall within the 45-day window. A significant amount of success, though, might speed up the film's arrival on Disney+, giving both current and prospective subscribers a chance to see what is sure to be an impressive piece of work. It will be at least 45 days until Disney+ subscribers can see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
