Scarlett Johansson has unfinished business in Black Widow teaser trailer

For those who haven’t watched Endgame, I’m sorry to burst your nomadic bubble — Natashia Romanoff a.k.a. Black Widow dies.

But with the new Black Widow movie coming out a little over a year after Avengers: Endgame’s release, do we really need to dig her up from the grave and put her back in action?

Technically, no.

Here’s the movie’s teaser trailer to prove it:

 

The Plot

Black Widow’s solo outing happens somewhere (somewhen?) between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.

Seeing that Natasha died in the present timeline (if we factor in the Multiverse and the possibility of time travel), setting the movie pre-Endgame is smart. Although, it comes a bit odd to make a movie about a dead character. We know full well she doesn’t have a future (I’m sorry for being blunt, but it’s true) starting in Phase 4.

We truly believe Natasha deserves better. And it took the Marvel head honchos 4 Phases and 10 years to give Black Widow a solo movie.

We still thank the Marvel gods for finally blessing us the spy movie Black Widow deserves. Hope it doesn’t feel like another Captain Marvel that’s out place with the rest of the movies in the Phase.

It’s clear from the teaser that Black Widow will be a sure hit. The epic action sequences, substantial characters, a menacing-looking villain with Taskmaster, it’s a promising female-in-action driven spy movie. Although, we do have a couple of those: Anna, Peppermint, and Atomic Blonde. What would make Black Widow stand out?

Well, it could be the Marvel name and our familiarity with her character. Moreover, Natasha Romanoff has a 10-year movie catalog and 55 years worth of comic books. She’s most certainly a character best watched in live action.

From what we also see from the teaser, the 2020 movie does share the same vibes as Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which Scarlett Johansson also had a co-starring role). Will it live up to the hype? We’d have to wait 5 more months.

Black Widow is the 24th film under the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first movie for Phase 4. Cate Shortland directs the film.  It stars Scarlett Johansson alongside David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz.  Mark your calendars! It starts showing in theaters on April 30th, 2020 in the Philippines.
