New York: The Black Widow movie is finally happening, and Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige released an exclusive trailer to Disney’s D23 Expo.
Black Widow is about to launch Section 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Like the new Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer, the Black Widow trailer hasn’t been posted online yet.
Feige debuted the trailer during Marvel’s segment of Disney’s big Studios panel. It opens with a montage of footage collected from various Marvel movies, including The Avengers, Avengers: Endgame, and Captain America: Civil War. It sets up Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) as a two-timing spy, relying on conversations between Tony Stark and Romanoff in Civil War.
The trailer also shows Natasha’s family, which is made up of her “sister” Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Red Guardian (David Harbour, doing a pretty fantastic Russian accent, TBH).
The trailer ends with Black Widow battling the film’s main villain, Taskmaster. He has the incredible ability to mimic and replicate his opponents’ moves. This seems to hint that Black Widow will be full of intense fight scenes.
It’s unclear when Marvel will release the trailer online. The last time Marvel Studios was at D23, Feige debuted the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, which didn’t show up online for months.
Black Widow is a prequel to the events of Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, the first films that featured Natasha Romanoff.
