It was March 10, 2020, when Disney/Marvel released its “final” movie trailer for the final movie in the Infinity Saga–Black Widow. Another “final” trailer is… finally… here. It’s Scarlett Johansson as a younger Black Widow, and this trailer features the most we’ve seen of Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, expected to take on the Black Widow role for the coming phase of the Marvel universe–along with a new cast of characters. We’ll all forever scratch our heads over why it didn’t enter anyone’s mind at Marvel Studios to get Marvel’s top superheroine her own movie before Infinity War and Endgame. Let’s hope it’s worth the wait.
Check out the new, final, trailer for Black Widow:
As you’ll see in the trailer, Black Widow features the return of Johansson, plus adds Stranger Things and Hellboy star David Harbour as the Soviet answer to Captain America, the Red Guardian and Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz (The Mummy) as assassin Melina Vostokoff aka Iron Maiden, and a de-aged (also Oscar-winning actor) William Hurt, who started the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe off in The Incredible Hulk–he’s back as General Ross. Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow takes place following the events of Captain America: Civil War, so it’s not really all that long ago. Recall when Natasha Romanov left Steve Rogers at the cemetery at the end of the film? This is evidently what she alluded to when she left.
Look for Black Widow to arrive on the Disney+ extra fee premiere plan and in theaters July 9, 2021.
