Natasha Romanoff is finally getting her own movie as Black Widow.
Scarlett Johansson returns as Natasha Romanoff in Black Widow trailer for Marvel‘s Black Widow released Tuesday, December 3, 2019, which shows off a spy thriller set before the events of Avengers Endgame.
It is, however, not an origin movie, the movie sets to reveal more about Natasha’s past than previously known including the introduction of a sister figure played by Florence Pugh.
Two other characters from Natasha’s past are also revealed through the trailer which includes; Red Guardian, played by David Harbour, and Melina played by Rachel Weisz.
The set of Black widow takes place a few years after Captain America: Civil War before Avengers: Infinity War as Natasha was one of the Avengers who didn’t make it out of Avengers: Endgame alive.
The trailer does acknowledge Endgame however by opening with part of an emotional monologue delivered by Natasha in that film, which ends with a new line: “Nothing lasts forever.”
Following the conclusion of Endgame and the epilogue of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Black Widow is considered the official first film of Marvel’s “phase four,” which will also include Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and Thor sequels, as well as films based on new properties, The Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the former movie following Black Widow in November 2020.
The film hits theatres on May 1 2020.
