During the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday night, Marvel released a new “special look” trailer for the studio’s new Black Widow movie releasing in May. It sees Scarlett Johansson return to the role of Natasha Romanoff.
The 90-second trailer features a lot of the same footage from the first trailer, so don’t expect to get a ton of new insight into what the movie is all about. However, Marvel has added in some new scenes, which offer a look at Taskmaster. Watch it below:
Black Widow is set before the events of Avengers: Endgame, and co-star David Harbour told IGN recently that it takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Beyond Johansson in the title role, the cast includes Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Harbour as Alexei (AKA Red Guardian), Rachel Weisz as Melina, and O-T Fagbenle as a character named Mason.
With its May 1, 2020 release date, Black Widow will officially kick off the MCU’s Phase 4. Black Widow is directed by Australian director Cate Shortland (Berlin Syndrome).
This is the second Marvel-centric trailer we’ve gotten recently. Sony’s Morbius trailer also dropped, and while it’s not a Marvel Studios film, it does feature some unexpected MCU connections. For more on that, check out our Morbius trailer breakdown.
