The new “Black Widow” movie now has a release window, but Marvel is keeping many of the film’s details a secret for now. Marvel Studios confirmed Scarlett Johansson’s solo project during the Hall H comic-con panel on Saturday night, giving the film a May 2020 release date. The film also stars Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz.
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character first appeared in the MCU in Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man 2,” which starred Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Clark Gregg. The movie was a hit at the box office, bringing in $623.9M worldwide and over $128M on opening weekend. Since then, Black Widow has been a permanent fixture in most of the Marvel movies and appeared in “The Avengers” in 2012, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in 2014, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in 2015, “Captain America: Civil War” in 2016, and “Avengers: Endgame” in 2019.
Details on the movie are slim, but since Natasha Romanoff met her end in “Avengers: Endgame,” the movie is expected to be a prequel to the events of Phase 3. Cate Shortland is directing the movie for Marvel Studios, working from a screenplay by Ned Benson.
Black Widow fans will have to wait a little longer to get more precise details on the movie, and while Marvel shared a clip during comic-con, viewers at home will have to wait a little longer to see Romanoff in action. Still, there are plenty of other Marvel movies on the horizon to keep fans busy. Marvel readers have “The Eternals,” “Thor 4,” “Shang Chi,” “Doctor Strange 2,” and “Black Panther 2” to wait for, just to name a few of the upcoming titles.
