Black Widow Confronts the Darker Parts of Her Ledger in New Trailer

As Godzilla vs. Kong set an unprecedented pandemic record at the international box office, it is apparent that moviegoers are ready to return to the cinemas. Of the many films that were delayed due to the coronavirus, Black Widow is easily one of the most anticipated movies out of the bunch. Originally intended as the first entry of Marvel Studio’s Phase Four projects, the studio just dropped a new trailer for the film that would undoubtedly get fans of the franchise riled up for the next instalment of the series.

Starring Scarlett Johansson in her very own solo outing as the beloved Avenger, Black Widow showcases Natasha Romanoff’s struggle to face her past and deal with unfinished business. The action-packed spy thriller will launch simultaneously in cinemas and on Disney+ with Premier Access* in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021. In the past, the studio stressed that the movie would be a theatrical-only release, considering the MCU’s (Marvel Cinematic Universe) reputation in producing quality event films. Now, international audiences will have the opportunity to experience Black Window in the comforts of their own home.

In Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff 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. Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Black Widow—the first film in Phase Four of the MCU—is directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Marvel mastermind, Kevin Feige.
