BLACK WIDOW: Scarlett Johansson's Deadly Avenger Evades Some Old Friends In New Still

A new still from Marvel's upcoming Black Widow movie has been released, and this one features Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) doing her best to evade some fellow Red Room graduates. Check it out...

We recently found out that Black Widow had been pushed back from its original release date due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and while we have been assured that the Cate Shortland-directed film will hit theaters at some point, we haven't been given any indication of when that might be.

For now, marketing and promotion for the movie continues, and we have a new still featuring a concered-looking Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) taking cover while some of her old Red Room assassin associates conduct a search of the area.

Johansson suggested that Black Widow would feature a shift in tone from the type of movies we're used to seeing in the MCU during a recent interview.

“I think part of Kevin Feige’s genius is that he always thinks about what fans expect out of these films and then gives them something that they never could’ve dreamed of,” she explained. “The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to wrap my head around what that was going to be because there’s such a big tonal shift.”

Check out the image below along with the final trailer and some previously released artwork, and let us know if you're looking forward to Black Widow in the comments.

Black Widow Vs. Taskmaster

Some awesome, animation-style artwork of Widow taking on Taskmaster.

We still don't know who'll be playing the villain, but cast member O. T. Fagbenle recently sent speculation into overdrive with a Tweet. That could all be misdirection, of course, as his character has been rumored to be the one under the mask for a while now.

Another look at Scarlett Johansson as The Fallen Avenger, Natasha Romanoff.

Although this movie has been confirmed to be a prequel (Widow met her maker in Avengers: Endgame, after all), there's a lot of speculation that at least part of the story will play out post-Endgame. Romanoff is not expected to be resurrected, but many believe that Florence Pugh's character Yelena Belova may end up taking over the Black Widow mantle.

Marvel Cinematic Universe - Black Widow - Run

Although fans have been asking for a standalone Black Widow adventure for many years, Johansson recently revealed that she actually wasn't all that interested - until she met director Cate Shortland, who was intrigued by the character's resilience.

“We just bonded over stories about trust and about intimacy and about women surviving,” Shortland says of her initial chat with the actress. “You didn’t have to be a superhero to identify with a woman who has had a really tough childhood and has survived and has a huge heart and helps other people.”

Florence Pugh will play Yelena Belova in Marvel's first (and most likely only) solo Black Widow movie. She has previously gained acclaim for her performances in the likes of WWE wrestling biopic Fighting With My Family and Ari Aster's Midsommar.
