“I’m done running from my past.”
Marvel Studios has finally dropped the first teaser for Scarlett Johansson’s solo outing, Black Widow, and it seems that Natasha has unfinished business in Russia.
The trailer sees Natasha return “home”, breaking into a European apartment to fight her “sis” Yelena (Florence Pugh) who matches her move for move, seeming to imply that perhaps they were both trained in the Red Room, and in this way are “sisters”.
The duo then come together with Alexei (David Harbour) a.k.a. the Red Guardian and Melina (Rachel Weisz) for “a hell of a reunion” – which even includes a brief glimpse at the film’s villain, Taskmaster. Though unfortunately for fans he doesn’t seem to be sporting his classic skeletal costume, but perhaps he will at some point in the film.
At SDCC in July, director Cate Shortland noted that Natasha “has so many secrets” and in this film “we get to understand her past and she gets to put those pieces together and become a whole person.”
With the release of this teaser came another poster for the film:
Black Widow is set for release on May 1st, 2020.
