Welp. The first Black Widow movie trailer is here. Marvel dropped it out of nowhere overnight – and features Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff suiting up for one last time. Watch the Black Widow trailer above as we also finally get the first taste of Marvel Phase 4. Drink it in.
If you weren’t sold on the Black Widow movie before, you probably will be after seeing the new trailer. It’s filled with action, adrenaline-pumping moments, and acts as a bittersweet reunion for us, especially knowing what happens in Avengers: Endgame. But there’s plenty more story to tell. Not only does she get a swanky new white combat suit, but she’s also taking a leaf out of Cap’s book by leaping from a plane without a parachute. It’s finally her time to shine.
But Nat isn’t flying solo for her last rodeo. Florence Pugh stars alongside ScarJo as Nat’s “sis” Yelena – complete with OTT Russian accent that carries more than a few shades of Scarlet Witch’s original voice. Then there’s also Rachel Weisz’s unnamed character, and a welcome return to our screens for David Harbour as the portly Red Guardian. He even gets to fight a masked villain in one scene. That’ll tide us over until Stranger Things season 4 – and then some.
There’s also another blast in the past, but this one will be more familiar to us than the rest of Nat’s family. General Ross (played by William Hurt) returns and asks Black Widow what she’s going to do. Her response? She done running from her past.
In a nice nod (or possibly a heartbreaking twist, depending on what happens), Yelena is also wearing the jacket that Nat rocks in Avengers: Infinity War. A memento? A keepsake? We’ll find out soon enough.
So, despite looking backwards for its first Phase 4 entry, Marvel is looking to continue its never-ending hot streak. The Black Widow trailer is a surefire sign that the MCU is in safe hands as it moves towards a risky, fresh new era.
Black Widow is out in theaters on May 1, 2020.
