It would seem that Marvel has heard all the criticisms regarding the Black Widow character not being given the respect she deserves – now gunning to amend it a thousand times over with the intriguing first trailer for Black Widow.
Yes, surprise. Despite what we can all agree has been an onset collective fatigue provoked by the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s still some movie magic in the tank. And trust me, you’ll want to reserve judgement until you see it for yourself.
This instalment will obviously follow the exploits of Scarlett Johansson’s titular Black Widow character, otherwise known as Natasha Romanoff. Taking place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, we get a glimpse of Romanoff’s personal history brought to life.
From the organisation that ‘created’ the Widow persona and honed her specialised skillset, to David Harbour’s Red Guardian – Russia’s version of Captain America in this universe – and even the screen debut of Marvel fan-favourite villain, Taskmaster.
They really pulled out all the stops for this one. It’s safe to say that Phase 4 is shaping up to be another strong one.
Black Widow is scheduled for cinematic release on May 1st, 2020.
