Scarlett Johansson's 'Black Widow' teaser trailer is out
The much-awaited first teaser trailer of Marvel Studios' upcoming solo Black Widow movie, starring Scarlett Johansson in the titular role is out now. The 2-minute-long teaser gives us an enthralling sneak peek into the past life of the trained spy Natasha Romanoff (Johansson), way before the S.H.I.E.L.D agent met her end in the Avengers: Endgame, that came out earlier this year. Here's more.
Black Widow sheds light on the events following Captain America: Civil War (2016). The initial part of the trailer recounts Natasha's journey in the MCU, and then dwells into the spy's past life. It cuts to a new city back home in Russia, where Natasha is seen getting into a heated encounter with Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), whom Natasha cryptically refers to as "sis".
The later parts of the trailer show some action-packed sequences, and portray Natasha teaming up with Malena (Rachel Weisz) and the Red Guardian (David Harbour), in order to settle some "unfinished business", which has been kept a secret for obvious reasons. Harbor's red suit-donning character does steal a moment or two. Further, the Black Widow is also seen wearing a cool looking white-colored suit.
Directed by Cate Shortland and based on a script by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, Black Widow is all set to become the 24th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), coming out after Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019). Set to be distributed by Disney, the movie will hit theaters in India in English/Hindi/Tamil/Telugu/Malayalam/Kannada, on April 30, 2020 (US release date: May 1, 2020).
Notably, Black Widow will be the first release in the planned Phase Four of the MCU. It will be followed by The Eternals (November 2020), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 2021). The other films in the said phase will be a Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel and Thor: Love and Thunder.
