The Black Widow movie has finally decided to step from the shadows. There are two trailers and a Super Bowl place to reunite through for hints, as well as additional details on the packed Black Widow cast, a poster, and even some narrative quotes on what we can expect from the solo adventure of Natasha Romanoff.
While this probably is goodbye for Nat in the MCU, it is also the first stop on the long and twisting road which makes up Marvel Phase 4. Therefore, you’ll need to be prepared before that May 1 release date and primed. Together with the likes of Thaddeus Ross showing up (in addition to a significant Iron Man rumor) also it taking place at an essential juncture in the Marvel deadline, it is likely to be just as critical as anything which comes after. Discount Black Widow in your peril as many have found out over the years.
Black Widow movie release date
Less than a year to go now. The Black Widow movie launch date is set for May 1, 2020. Announced as part of a heaving slate of forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe entrances at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 (SDCC 2019), the movie will kick off Marvel Phase 4.
Black Widow movie cast
Scarlett Johansson is back in Natasha Romanoff. How could it be a Black Widow film without her? But she isn’t coming.
Joining her in the Dark Widow movie cast is Midsommar guide Florence Pugh as Yelena, another member of the Black Widow training regime. Pugh describes her character as”like a sister” to Natasha, though, as we will soon discover, there is plenty of bad blood between the two.
Rachel Weisz, meanwhile, is nonetheless another brand new Black Widow on the block, enjoying Melina Vostokoff. Possible spoilers here, but that is not all she is called in the comic books. There, she goes under the guise of the villainous Iron Maiden, who resisted a lot of pent-up anger at Nat.
Maybe the commodity joining the cast is Stranger Matters’ David Harbour. Here he is shifting his police hat as he will be playing with Alexi in the comics as the Red Guardian. He gets a suit and throws hands at masked enemies as exhibited from the trailer.
As the villain of this piece: the Taskmaster is from the movie for. No word on casting yet, though it’s been revealed that Natasha will be facing off from the protagonist who lately made an (irritating) series of looks in the Spider-Man PS4 match.
Elsewhere, Variety is reporting that British acting legend Ray Winstone has signed to play an unnamed function in the film, whilst THR states O.T. Fagbenle, of The Handmaid’s Tale celebrity, is also appearing in Black Widow.
More recently there were rumblings about two MCU actors who are making their presence felt within the Black Widow movie cast.
First up is a large one: Robert Downey Jr. Yup. Tony Stark could be returning under a year after his supposed departure in Avengers: Endgame. There is a bit of a twist. Reports indicate his cameo will be torn straight out of a Captain America: Civil War unreleased detailed scene. That also fits in matching Infinity War and Endgame.
More intriguing is the clear addition of General Ross, that had been seen in Endgame but is famous for his role in 2008’s The unbelievable Hulk. He was spotted on-set (via Only Jared), with a cane to help support himself and his part in the movie was afterward supported by the trailer. Could he be setting up The Thunderbolts, the Marvel team-for-hire that is nefarious?
