Marvel Entertainment dropped the first public trailer for the upcoming Black Widow live-action film starring Scarlett Johansson. The movie takes place before the events of Avengers: Endgame, obviously, and showcases the assassin teaming up with her surrogate family to take care of some unfinished business.
The trailer depicts the film as being more-so inline to a French spy-thriller than a typical comic book movie. It’s extremely reminiscent of the Jason Bourne films, only halfway through the trailer everyone starts putting on super hero costumes and looking a tad ridiculous. Although, I must admit that Taskmaster sporting what looks like the nanosuit from Crysis is actually kind of cool.

We don’t know exactly why Natasha Romanova returns to Russia, but she does. She meets up with her “sister” Yelena, and former allies in order to take down a facility for some unexplained reason.
There’s a chase scene in the middle of the day, not unlike the one featured in Captain America: The Winter Soldier or the Jason Bourne films, and we get a brief look at Taskmaster wielding a bow and arrow, and truly looking like he stepped right out of Crysis 2.
Most of the trailer seems to keep the action grounded just until near the end where Natasha is flying through the air, dodging debris and men shooting at her with machine guns while plummeting toward the earth.
I’m not really sure what’s up with that scene but it’s certainly the most fantastical element of the trailer. Everything else almost looks grounded enough to be a typical spy-thriller.
Anyway, I’m not really interested in any of these new Marvel flicks after they revealed that they were purposely getting woke and basically trying to shove their agenda down everybody’s throats by corrupting classic comic book characters. Executive producer Kevin Feige even went so far as to admit to the newer films going woke. While the trailer for Black Widow looks kosher, I’m sure they’ll find a way to add some woke nonsense in there somewhere, especially since the director of the film hates guns and wanted the movie to be feminist.
If you’re still keen on riding the Marvel hype you can look for the film to hit theaters in May of 2020.
