Marvel Studios' drops first official teaser for Black Widow

Stop reading right now if you haven’t watched Avengers: Endgame because I’m about to drop a major spoiler. Oh, and how could you not have watched Avengers: Endgame?

Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, might have sacrificed herself to get the Soul Stone in Endgame, but that isn’t stopping Marvel and Disney from telling her backstory. Marvel describes the movie as an “action-packed spy thriller."

Black Widow will be the first film in what Marvel calls “Phase Four” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The story takes place in the MCU chronology between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. The action will focus on Romanoff’s adventures in Budapest, which Hawkeye referenced in Endgame and other Avenger films.

The teaser shows an intense fight scene between Romanoff and Yelena Belova (played by Florence Pugh), whom Black Widow refers to as “sis.” In the comics, Belova becomes the second Black Widow, so we might assume that Pugh may appear as the Black Widow in future MCU films that are set post-Endgame.

Another interesting (and somewhat funny) scene in the trailer is David Harbour (Stranger Things) cast as Alexi Shostakov, aka The Red Guardian. He seems a bit pudgy for the role since RG was buff in the comics. However, it appears he has been in retirement for a while and let himself go.

Harbour even dons the Red Guardian costume, humorously flexing and then saying, “HA! Still fits!” Later in the clip, he is seen fighting in-costume, so it appears Harbour is not just playing a comedic side-line character.

Black Widow will debut in theaters on May 1, 2020.

Not sure if this is an error by the author or yet another "lol who cares?" retcon by Disney/Marvel, but the Budapest joke started in the first Avengers film. So how can the Budapest events take place between Civil War and Infinity War?

Yay! Another super hero movie for kidults to take far too seriously...
dude real life has all the depressing things covered and rest is taken care by Trumpology. the sudden resurrection of right wing and the Rise of China to power level of Germany are upon us and not a distant dream.
But for one I am afraid of the monopoly of Disney and the effect it is having on the creative media.

So let us have our make believe and the heros which come with it, for one may not be iron man or captain america perse but sure can strive to follow the philosophy they impart.

its not the man a child can become but rather the child in the man which enables hims to keep his sanity.

full disclosure : beer may have a role in my rant.
