Here’s The Trailer For Black Widow!


You would think that I would be super excited about the fact that my favorite MCU character, the Black Widow, is finally getting her own solo film.  (That Brie Larson’s anemic Captain Marvel got her solo film before the Black Widow is an injustice that I’ll never get over.)  And I guess I am excited.  The trailer, which you can watch below, is pretty good.  It looks like an attempt to bring some Bourne/007 action to MCU and that would seem like the perfect approach to take to the character.

If I’m less than enthusiastic, it’s because 1) I’m still upset over what happened to the Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame and 2) this film is a prequel as opposed to a sequel.  Which means that, despite starring Scarlett Johansson, the film is not going to open with the Natasha coming back to life.  (You have to wonder if, with recent events. anyone in the MCU regrets killing off one of their best characters as opposed to letting Jeremy Renner’s archer take the fall.)  Florence Pugh, in Black Widow, is playing a character who apparently took over the Black Widow name in the comic books so here’s my fear: the film will feature a mid-credits scene of Florence Pugh at Natasha’s grave, announcing that she’ll carry on her legacy.  That’s my fear.

Anyway, here’s the trailer:

  1. I kinda feel like this movie would have had more impact around 2012-2013, when fans (including me) were clamouring for it. Now it sort of has an air of “Well, she’s still dead, but we’re throwing you a bone right?” about it. (Gah, that sounds really uncharitable, I still want to see it, I’m just sad about the constant fridging the MCU does.)
