Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ teaser trailer that released last year was all things glorious, full of action, adventure, suspense and ‘family’ drama. Today, Marvel Studios dropped a special look video that further delves into the past of the famed Russian assassin turned member of the Avengers, Natasha Romanoff.
The teaser gives us a detailed look at Natasha’s interaction with her ‘sister’ and fellow spy, Yelena Belova (played by Florence Pugh) that sees her confessing that she wants to “be more than just a trained killer.”
The clip moves on to the two set out to regroup with their ‘family’ – Melina Vostokoff and Alexei Shostakov or the Red Guardian played by Rachel Weisz and David Harbour respectively.
Unlike the teaser, this clip gives a good look at the masked villain – Taskmaster, who surprisingly, has the same fighting styles as Natasha, Yelena and Melina.
“Who the hell is that guy?” the trailer ends with Black Widow coming face-to-face with the Taskmaster.Packed with combat scenes, gun fights, and chase sequences, this teaser has something for everyone in this film set to release on April 30 in India.
With a full-length trailer still to come, it remains to be seen if it will give us a look a Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man.
Set after the events of ‘Captain America: Civil War’, the film will follow Natasha Romanoff as she goes on the run from the government and tries to finally take on the nemesis from her past once and for all.
Considering that her character meets her end in the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, it remains to see how this franchise will be taken forward or how it links the plot to ‘Avengers: Infinity War’.
This trailer also comes in at a time when Scarlett bagged two Oscar nominations – Best Actress in a Leading Role for ‘Marriage Story’ and Best Actress in a Supporting Role for ‘Jo Jo Rabbit’. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ also bagged a nomination in the ‘Best Visual Effects’ category.
