Scarlett Johansson Kicks Ass in the First Trailer for 'Black Widow'
The actress returns as her iconic Marvel character.
Black Widow marks the first chapter of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4, meaning that there’s a lot of hype surrounding the already talked about film. Johansson has been portraying the role since she was first introduced in Iron Man 2, and Black Widow will be the character’s first standalone film. Focusing on the character’s background and rise, the movie will follow agent Natasha Romanoff, and her journey towards becoming the deadly assassin.
The trailer opens with dialogue from Avengers: Endgame, featuring Romanoff telling Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, “I used to have nothing, then I got this job, this family. I was better because of it. I’ve made mistakes, I can’t go back.” Throughout the clip, we’re also introduced to Florence Pugh‘s character Yelena Belova, who also uses the Black Widow moniker. In addition, we also get a first look at Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as the Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz as Red Room trainer Melina.
In terms of the timeline, Black Widow takes place following the events of Captain America: Civil War. The film is set to be released on May 1, 2020. Catch the trailer in the video above, and let us know whether you’ll be watching the upcoming film in the comments below.
