She was the OG female Avenger until the appearances of Nebula, Gamora, Shuri and the other ladies that unofficially joined the ranks of the Avengers. Though, Black Widow will always be in our hearts as our fave. Now, she’s getting her own movie with 2020’s Black Widow film.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow will focus on the events of Natasha’s life between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. The film will detail parts of Nat’s life that we didn’t know before, including her previous life in Russia.
Not much is known about the plot but it’s great to finally see Nat get the film we’ve asked for! The film sees Scarlett Johannson return as Natasha Romanov despite the character’s tragic death in Avengers: Endgame. This won’t be a traditional origin story, but more like a detailed backstory to how Natasha’s persona came to be.
The movie will also feature Stranger Things star David Harbour, The Mummy‘s Rachel Weisz, and Florence Pugh. Black Widow will be the second female-oriented Marvel film after Captain Marvel. There’s also not much much we know about cameos from Widow’s fellow Avengers. It’s possible we could see Clint as he mentions something that goes down in Budapest. This ultimately is a massive talking point as it becomes a running gag between best buds, Clint and Nat.
We’re looking forward to seeing Black Widow’s past and how she came to be the character we love. This is going to be one hell of a film! We cannot be more excited for it to be released. Talk about the perfect way to bring about the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four. We need more kickass lady Avenger movies! Give them to us now!
Black Widow kicks its way into cinemas in May 2020 almost six months before The Eternals drops into cinemas.
It’s the most tragic friendship in the MCU. Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton were as close as family, but Nat’s death changed that…
