“At some point we all have to choose between what the world wants you to be and who you are.”
Marvel Studios has now shared the final trailer for Black Widow – which is indeed sticking with its original release date despite other tentpole films such as James Bond: No Time to Die pushing back their release dates.
Much is riding on the film as it is the first film of Marvel’s Phase 4 and the first solo effort for Scarlett Johansson. The new trailer contains a bevy of new footage, and while it doesn’t really expand too much on what we already know about the plot, we do get to see a lot more of Natasha Romanoff (Johansson) in action alongside members of her “family,” Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour).
We do get to see a lot more of one of last year’s brightest stars, Florence Pugh, as Natasha’s sister. There is also rampant speculation that Pugh will take over the mantle of Black Widow, since Natasha died at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
There’s are also some really bomb shots of Taskmaster showing off his skills, who we learn is in control of the Red Room assassins.
Check out the trailer below along with the new poster, and share with us what you think.
Here is the official synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow:
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Eric Pearson based on a story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, Marvel Studios’ Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.
Black Widow is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 1, 2020. That could change given the outbreak of COVID-19.
