Marvel fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of Black Widow’s solo film, following her unforgettable appearances in several Marvel superhero films. Scarlett Johansson will reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow in the upcoming film, which is set to hit theaters on July 9th.
Fans have long wondered about Black Widow’s backstory, her origins as a killer, and the events that led her to become a member of the Avengers. The upcoming movie offers plenty of exciting opportunities to answer some of those questions, and give fans a more unfiltered look into the life of the lethal assassin.
First of all, the film takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War. This suggests that the movie will fill in gaps of Natasha’s past and provide insight into how she operates when not working as a superhero.
Fans can expect to see Black Widow’s origin story, which will delve into her dark past when she was first trained as a spy and an assassin in Russia’s infamous Red Room program. Expect a lot of action and tense moments as we follow Natasha’s journey through the program as she realizes the true nature of her work and what she stands for.
Natasha has been a fairly enigmatic character, at least in comparison to some of the more charismatic Avengers. In the upcoming movie, we may see her softer side as well, considering the film will dive deeply into her personal life. Her family and relationships will be front and center, as she reunites with old comrades and creates new alliances.
As for the villains, the movie’s trailers have already provided a glimpse of the menacing Taskmaster, who can mimic the fighting style of any character. This much has been known, and we can expect plenty of thrilling fight scenes between Taskmaster and Black Widow.
Also, for those who stayed to the end of Avengers: Endgame, one may remember that the film teased the introduction of a new younger Black Widow named Yelena Belova. Yelena is portrayed by Florence Pugh and will play a prominent role in the film, potentially setting up future Marvel movies.
Overall, Black Widow’s solo film is shaping up to be a thrilling ride for Marvel fans, and an insight into one of the universe’s most iconic but mysterious characters. Expectations are high, but if the trailers are anything to go by, Black Widow may be set to deliver one of Marvel’s best solo films yet.
