Black Widow / Marvel Studios / Disney
The black widow is back. Scarlett Johansson is the focus of the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Black Widow, as her character Natasha Romanov gets her own solo film. The first teaser trailer has arrived and gives the fans a first insight into the new spy adventure directed by Cate Shortland.
While Johansson's Natasha had a rough ending in Avengers: Endgame, this movie gives her new life by playing before the events of this film. Although it is likely that there will be some links to the future of the MCU, Black Widow will show a chapter of Natasha's life that the fans have not yet seen – including possibly the mission in Budapest she had with Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye (finally !). , which was referenced several times in the MCU.
Following the events of Captain America: Civil War – and looking back on their training as a Black Widow – the film follows Natasha as she grapples with her mysterious past and faces a new threat in the form of Taskmaster, a mercenary, a master murderer take on the abilities of his enemies.
The trailer is full of action and should give Marvel fans a new look at a character they have been following for over a decade:

Johansson plays alongside Florence Pugh, who plays another black widow named Yelena Belova, and David Harbor, who plays Red Guardian, a Russian super soldier with characteristics similar to Captain America. Rachel Weisz also plays the lead role as another black widow spy named Melina, who is possibly more hostile than a friend.
Black Widow will be released on May 1, 2020.
