Marvel Studios can finally start (or start over or continue, depending on how you want to look at it) the promotional rollout for Black Widow. Disney and Marvel Studios shared some new photos from the highly-anticipated film. These pictures come on the tail of a brand new trailer that was released just yesterday. As of writing this, that trailer has already accrued nearly 7 million views on Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube channel.
That continued interest proves how ecstatic fans are to finally see this chapter of Natasha Romanoff‘s life realized on screen. It is bittersweet that it comes after her unfortunate death in the MCU, not to mention well past its deserved premiere. This is not to critique the studios for pushing the release due to the world’s current circumstances because people’s safety is always the right choice in a situation like this. It is to say that Marvel Studios should have given the first female Avenger her film well before now.
The photos below give us a high-quality glimpse at the characters we will meet on July 9th, either at home through Premier Access on Disney+ or in theaters. Natasha is up against a threat that won’t let up. Taskmaster could be the only thing Natasha’s up against, but the footage we’ve seen suggests Taskmaster is just the tip of a larger iceberg.
There are also photos of Natasha’s family, beyond the Avengers. The photos show us Florence Pugh, scaling a building as Yelena, which is extremely exciting in its own right. There’s plenty of photos of Natasha and Yelena together — emphasizing their deep connection that we’ll see on a screen very soon. Plus, we get a look at Rachel Weisz as Melina and David Harbour as Alexei, otherwise known as Red Guardian.
By the way, if you noticed that Red Guardian’s resembles Captain America’s, you are not wrong to make that connection.
Disney and Marvel Studios describe Black Widow as the following:
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, “Black Widow”—the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe— will launch simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021.
