Marvel released a short Black Widow trailer on Monday night, and the movie is finally going to answer those random Budapest references in Marvel’s other films. Cate Shortland directed the film for Marvel, which features Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour. The Black Widow trailer reminds fans that the movie releases in theaters on May 1, 2020, and the movie is a prequel to the events of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinite War.
Black Widow and Hawkeye were the only two members of the original Avengers crew not to have their own standalone movies. As the only woman in the group, fans have been asking for a Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow movie for the last seven years. The story is expected to take place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and the climactic end of Avengers: Infinity War, while also answering a few questions about Romanoff’s origin and secretive past. If you’re a Hawkeye fan, you aren’t getting a standalone movie, but Jeremy Renner is starring in a Hawkeye series on Disney+. D23 attendees this year saw a lengthier version of this trailer at the event, and that version will probably be released sometime over the next few months.
Scarlett Johansson recently teamed up with Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi for the satirical movie JoJo Rabbit, in which Waititi played an imaginary friend version of Adolf Hitler. Johansson starred as Rosie in the film, the mother of the film’s star, Roman Griffin Davis. Johansson is also reprising her role as Ash in the animated sequel Sing 2.
With Avengers: Infinity War ending Phase 3, the next phase in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe includes The Eternals. That movie will feature Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, and Don Lee. The Fantastic Four and Shang Chi are also expected to get movies in the next phase, but those movies are still very far away at this point.
