Marvel Studios has officially dropped a rousing new trailer for their upcoming first entry in Phase IV with ScarJo returning as legendary assassin Natasha Romanoff also famously known as the Black Widow. Check out the fisticuffs, bullets and action drenched drama below along with the new poster!
Johansson returns in the new film that is said to take place after the historic events of Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War. Romanoff was an elite and brutal assassin trained by the KGB who would go on to, of course, join S.H.I.E.L.D. And later The Avengers. She gave her life in Endgame so that they could retrieve one of the Infinity Stones to stop Thanos in a truly heart wrenching scene with Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye.
Johansson stars along with David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy) as Alexei who’s alter ego is The Red Guardian, Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) as Yelena, Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) as Melina and O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Mason.
The new teaser truly shows off Johansson in fine form and it looks like she’ll be mixing it up physically with a good dose of fisticuffs and firepower to please fans.
Cate Shortland from Lore helms from a script penned by Jac Shaffer. Black Widow hits theaters next year on May 1st!
