Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Widow’ Movie Trailer Is Finally Here
And it looks awesome.
The fans finally have an idea of what to expect from Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four. Marvel finally revealed the first teaser for its upcoming film Black Widow early Tuesday morning.
Black Widow, as known as Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson) says, “Nothing lasts forever,” as she recounts her last years as an Avenger. “I have lived a lot of lives, but I am done running from my past.”
The trailer sees Nat meet up with her sister Yelena (Florence Pugh) and the rest of her assassin “family members”, together with David Harbour’s Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz’s character as Melina. As we know from her previous Marvel movies though, Nat has never truly been with anyone close, so it would not be so surprising if these new characters have their respective agendas.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow is the first solo film about Natasha Romanoff which is a character who first appeared in Iron Man 2‘s Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2010. The solo movie does not immediately follow Endgame‘s events, which does make sense for anyone who knows what happens in April’s blockbuster hit. Instead, Black Widow will be placed between the movies Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
Johansson told in Entertainment Weekly in July, “She has no one to call and got nowhere to go,” she also added: “When something big happens and all the pieces are scattered and you have that moment of silence and you do not know what to do next — that is the moment where she’s in. And in that exact moment, you have to face it by yourself.”
Exploring the past of Black Widow, the film will also function as a prequel of sorts. Even though the main character has been with the audience for almost a decade, her past — her being an assassin trainee, her entering the Black Widow program — still remains anonymous to fans.
Black Widow will hit the cinemas on May 1, 2020.
