Scarlett Johansson’s stand-alone Black Widow teaser just dropped and it takes Marvel fans to the ‘making’ of Black Widow aka agent Romanoff before Iron Man Iron first introduced the badass agent to the Avengers in 2010. Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, the teaser of Black Widow sees Natasha coming face to afce with herself as the caption reads, ‘’I’m done running from my past’’.
Watch the teaser here:
Directed by Cate Shorthand, the teaser introduces the villain Taskmaster, as well as characters like Rachel Weisz’s Malena, David Harbour’s Alexei/Red Guardian, Florence Pugh’s Yelena, and O.T. Fagbenle’s Mason.
Talking about Black Widow during San Diego Comic-Con, Johansson told EW,
“Where we find Natasha in her life at this point is very specific’’.
“She really is in a dark place where she’s got no one to call and nowhere to go. She’s really grappling with her own self. When something huge explodes and all the pieces are landing, you have that moment of stillness where you don’t know what to do next — that’s the moment that she’s in. In that moment, you actually have to face yourself.”
Black Widow will hit theaters May 1.
