Marvel Studios has today released the final trailer for “Black Widow,” and it promises to be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) most action-filled outings yet. It marks the first time that Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff has had a film of her own, despite being a staple in the “Avengers” films since their origin.
The following synopsis was released by Walt Disney Studios along with the trailer:
“In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.”
Johansson reprises her role as the kick-ass former Russian spy, and is joined by a stellar cast, including recent Academy Award nominee Florence Pugh (“Little Women”) as Yelena Belova, a sister-type figure to Romanoff. “Stranger Things” star David Harbour brings the comic relief it seems as the funny but equally tragic Alexei Shostakov, along with Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardner”) making her MCU debut as Melina Vostokoff. O.T. Fagbenle, Ray Winstone and William Hurt are also part of the film’s ensemble. Kevin Feige serves as producer, while Johansson, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum and Nigel Gostelow serve as executive producers.
“Black Widow” will be set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” which saw Captain America and Iron Man clash heads over the best course of action for the Avengers initiative. The first film in the fourth phase for the MCU, it also marks only the second film in the universe to be led solely by a woman, after Brie Larson’s “Captain Marvel” last year. Anna Boden co-directed the debut of Larson’s character, however “Black Widow” marks the first MCU film to be directed solely by a woman, with Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland at the helm. Eric Pearson has penned the script along with Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, having previously co-written Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok.”
