Finally the MCU has broken the silence since Spider-Man: Far From Home this summer! This morning in the early hours, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for the upcoming Black Widow film, set to release on May 1, 2020.
I cannot wait to see this film! Not only am I a die-hard Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fan, but I’ve always wanted a Black Widow story. And Scarlett Johansson shows up with a fierceness that cannot be denied as her beloved character finally gets the spotlight she deserves.
Joining the cast is David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian, seen previously as Hopper in Stranger Things and as Hellboy, Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff, known for her roles in The Mummy series (my favorite!), and Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, previously seen in Midsommar and Fighting With My Family (any other WWE fans around?!).
Also seen in the trailer is General Thaddeus Ross played by William Hurt. Since Black Widow reportedly takes place following the events of Captain America:
Civil War and prior to Avengers: Infinity War, it makes sense that Ross would be hot on Agent Romanoff’s trail.
Wherever this story takes us, I cannot wait to learn more about Natasha’s past and the many adventures she’s had that were not part of the main Avengers story line… thus far.
