Marvel’s BLACK WIDOW trailer – Scarlett Johansson finally gets her own superhero movie

We’re going to assume by now you’ve seen AVENGERS: ENDGAME, and know that Black Widow didn’t survive the events of that film. In fact she and Tony Stark / Iron Man both perished while attempting to undo what Thanos did. So it was a bit of a surprise when rumors started flying that a BLACK WIDOW movie would be one of the next big films from Marvel Studios… in fact, it was a bit strange as for the longest time Marvel hadn’t “officially” announced it, so it was only a rumor for several months. Well now we see that it’s very much real, and below we can get our first look at the film. Directed by Cate Shortland (BERLIN SYNDROME), the cast includes Scarlett Johansson (as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow), Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour (as Alexei Shostakov / Red Guardian), William Hurt (back as Thaddeus Ross), Ray Winstone and O-T Fagbenle. There’s also rumors that Robert Downey Jr. may have a cameo as Tony Stark, as this film take place before the events of ENDGAME. While I like the character of Black Widow, this sort of feels like too little too late, and compared to some of the other Marvel movies, it doesn’t look that exciting… yet. Maybe the trailer isn’t doing it justice, and seeing as how it comes out in May of 2020, there will undoubtedly be more trailers before it’s released. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
