While at D23 Expo 2019, Marvel Studios reveals a new Black Widow white costume worn by Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) in the upcoming MCU movie.
The images, which were posted online by Discussing Film, show a white costume, with various belts and holsters in black. It’s reminiscent of costumes Romanoff has already worn in the MCU, and the character had a white suit in the comics, so it seems likely she’ll be the one to put it on for the film.
A video posted online by Brandon Davis also showed off the costume.
In the comics, Natasha sports an all-white costume with gold accents on the variant cover of Black Widow: Deadly Origin #2 written by Paul Cornell with art by John Paul Leon and Tom Raney. The four issue series was published 2009-2010 prior to Black Widow’s introduction in Iron Man 2, and sees Natasha Romanoff/Natalia Romanova deal with skeletons from her past resurfacing – which is quite similar to what we know about the movie. In Black Widow, Nat will reunite with a fellow agent from the Black Widow program, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), and confront her past.
Although details about the upcoming Black Widow film are being kept relatively under wraps, Taskmaster is said to be the movie’s villain.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle and Rachel Weisz. The film arrives in theaters on May 1, 2020.
