What is Black Widow about?

For those who have watched Avengers: Endgame, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Black Widow is a prequel. The movie takes place between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Black Widow hones in more on Natasha's backstory while she's on the run. The movie introduces us to a supersoldier named Red Guardian as well as other Black Widow operatives. It also welcomes newcomers Florence Pugh and David Harbour to the MCU.

We awarded the film a 6/10 in our Black Widow review, GameSpot's managing editor of entertainment Michael Rougeau praised the movie's characterization of Natasha and the performances of Pugh and Harbour but knocked it for its lackluster villains, poor pacing, and disjointed place in the MCU.
