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.
After watching the trailer , I will say I’m looking forward to this more than I thought I would . I’ve never been a huge fan of Johansson early work as Black Widow , I found her very stiff but over the last few MCU entries , it was quite good .Plus this does have a stellar cast and looks to bring some intrigue and old school practical action sensibilities . So I’ll be checking it out for sure .
That practical action element is one of the things that intrigues me the most. It is one of my favorite things about “Winter Soldier” and if this movie taps into some of that I’ll be REALLY pleased.
HERE FOR IT!
You know it! For what it’s worth, this trailer leaves a strong first impression.
YEP YEP YEP! I wonder if they’ll tie this in to Endgame, and if so, how they’ll do it.
I know! You’ve got to think there will be some connection to either the last phase of Marvel movies or (somehow) the up and coming films. I’m curious!
I have a theory 🤣🤣
HA! Oooo I’m intrigued!
All I can say is this… OH HELL YEAH!!!!!
Plus, Florence Pugh as the new Black Widow (she is worthy for Scarlett to pass the torch to) and David Harbour as Red Guardian. How can I say no to that?
Plus, part of me wants to see how Captain America reacts to Red Guardian. Maybe they just laugh and share a bottle of vodka together.
It has so many tasty ingredients. If they all come together (like I hope they do) this could be a really good one. I’m not too familiar with Cate Shortland. Anxious to see what she brings to it.
I’ve seen a couple of Shortland’s films in Somersault (w/ Abbie Cornish and Sam Worthington) and Lore as the latter is incredible.
Sounds like I need to look them up, especially Lore.
Definitely looking forward to it!
Me too (obviously). Really hope it is in the Winter Soldier vein. That would be so much fun!
Yeah, it would – Winter Soldier is among my very favourite MCU movies so far.
Totally worth the wait!!
