Ahead of its May release, Marvel Studios has released a new look at Black Widow.
Aired during the College Football Playoff National Championship, the trailer shows Natasha on the run following the events of Captain America: Civil War. She reunites with her family to take down a “new world of Widows” and a new enemy: Taskmaster.
Directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) from a script by Jac Schaeffer (Captain Marvel) and Ned Benson (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby), the long-anticipated action thriller is set after the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, as Natasha heads off to confront her past. That includes the Red Room, the Soviet brainwashing and training facility seen in an illusion in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the “blood in her ledger” from her days as an assassin.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina. The film opens May 1, 2020.
