Black Widow is finally getting her own movie, and we're finally going to be able to see it. The film was supposed to make its debut in May 2020, but, like many things slated for last year, it was delayed a few times because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has a new release date of July 9, 2021, and the trailer is here.
In it, we see Florence Pugh make her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Yelena Belova, Black Widow's "sister," who will join the MCU as a new character. She's already filmed the TV series Hawkeye in the role of Yelena.
The trailer tells us the story of Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff’s) life before she was an Avenger. We see Natasha reunite with Yelena and the assassin from the comics, Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz), aka Iron Maiden. David Harbour plays Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, Natasha and Yelena's dad.
This star-studded cast seemed to only be a plus for Pugh, who seemed to be stoked to work with Johansson in the lead:
"I loved the script, and I love [Black Widow director] Cate Shortland," she told CinemaBlend. "And I think everything that they're trying to do with that film is make it as painful and as real and as gritty as possible and it was exactly like that when we made it. And that was a really nice thing to get to, and of course I got to be with the Black Widow and watch her work, which was pretty amazing considering she’s been the only female superhero for the past 10 years."
