After making waves from many of the reports after this years San Diego Comic Con Hall H, Marvel Studios panel about the footage that was shown from the BLACK WIDOW film. Well now that footage and more has arrived in the form of the first official teaser trailer.
Throughout it we see Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johannson) revisiting things in her past i.e The Red Room and even visions of different Avengers. We also see Florence Pugh as Yelena, who we find out is Natasha’s sister. We also get a full look at David Harbour as Red Guardian (the Russian equivalent to Captain America). This seems to be an amazing kickoff to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There is so much action that you need to witness the trailer yourself.
BLACK WIDOW hits theater on May 1, 2020. Also Check out our own resident super villain, Jay Washington’s trailer reaction to the trailer…yes it’s a thing.
Marvel Studios solo Black Widow is set to begin production this summer in London. With a cast that includes Scarlett Johannson reprising her role as the spy turned Avenger, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbour it now seems as if we may who have found whom her villain will be.
This according to Deadline is O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid’s Tale, Breaking and Entering) . Now the report does not mention anything about whom he will be portraying but thanks to a recent report from That Hashtag Show suggested that Marvel and director Cate Shortland were searching for a “black British actor” to play the main bad guy, so there’s a pretty good chance Fagbenle is their guy.
After an amazing performance as WWE Superstar Paige, it now seems that Florence Pugh is heading from the squared circle to the MCU. Pugh has been cast as the lead opposite Scarlett Johnasson in the upcoming Black Widow film.
The details on her exact role are being kept under wraps for now but it is known that she will be playing a spy on the same skill level as Natasha Romanoff (Johansson), but won’t share her moral compass.
Pugh had been at the top of Marvel’s list since her audition in December, but they still decided to open up their casting search and had been meeting with several actresses which included Academy Award-nominee Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) and Academy Award winner Emma Watson (Harry Potter). However, it appears Pugh beat out both for the part.
Florence Pugh is best known for her breakout role in Fighting with My Family earlier this year although she her past credits which include The Little Drummer Girl, The Outlaw King, Lady Macbeth, The Commuter, and The Falling. She can be seen next in Ari Aster’s Hereditary follow-up Midsommar and Greta Gerwig’s Little Woman, where she’ll actually star alongside Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, and Meryl Streep.
No release date has been set as of yet.
