A new trailer dropped for Marvel’s Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson. While we already know the fate of The Black Widow, it’s great that we can still get stories that show us smaller, but still meaningful moments inside the MCU. Adding to the cache for the film is that Scarlett Johansson started the week with multiple Oscar nominations. She’s up for Best Actress in Marriage Story (her co-star, Adam Driver, is up for best actor) and she’s also up for Best Supporting actress in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit.
While much of the footage in this trailer is stuff that we’ve already seen, one big bonus is that there is a bunch of new Taskmaster stuff that is being revealed for the first time.
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, “Black Widow”—the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe—hits U.S. theaters on May 1, 2020.
