While most of us on this side of the Atlantic were asleep Marvel Studios dropped what they are calling ‘the official teaser trailer’ for their next massive box office money maker. It is the first of only two MCU movies currently scheduled for the big screen in 2020. But for me, it’s one of the films I’m most excited for out of their entire Phase 4 lineup.
“Black Widow” has all the markings of a really good MCU film and the first trailer shows why. She’s a character with such a rich but tumultuous past and it looks like she’ll be confronting it head-on. Scarlett Johansson returns and is joined by a stellar supporting cast including Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz (who we only get a glimpse of). I’m really hoping this is in the vein of “Winter Soldier” – an old school spy thriller with more practical effects than CGI. Either way, I’m in.
“Black Widow” is slated to hit theaters May 1, 2020. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
