Marvel Releases Black Widow Trailer - Watch It Here

Black Widow hits theaters May 1, 2020

16 Comments

Marvel has finally released the long-awaited first Black Widow trailer. Fans have been awaiting the upcoming standalone film, starring Scarlett Johansson, for years, and this is the general public's first official look (Disney showed sneak peeks to fans during the D23 conference and at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, but that footage never went wide).

The Black Widow trailer was posted by Marvel Studios' official Twitter account (and on YouTube) in the early hours of the morning, and it spans a full two minutes. Watch it below, and then check out our in-depth Black Widow trailer breakdown. Given how long the trailer is, you might easily miss a detail of note.

"I used to have nothing. And then I got this job--this family. But nothing lasts forever," Natasha Romanoff--AKA Black Widow--says as the trailer opens. Fans who saw Avengers: Endgame this year are well aware of that, as Johansson's character met a grisly end in the conclusion to the 20+ film Infinity War Saga. (Fans should also recognize that line, as it's actually from Endgame, not this movie.) Anyway, Natasha's fate in Endgame makes it extra strange that she's getting her standalone movie posthumously--a first for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which, to be fair, has made plenty of firsts over the last decade.

Obviously, Black Widow will take place before the events of Endgame, and David Harbour told IGN recently that it takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Beyond Johansson, the cast also includes Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, Harbour as Alexei (AKA Red Guardian), Rachel Weisz as Melina, and O-T Fagbenle as a character named Mason.

With its May 1 2020 release date, Black Widow will officially kick off the MCU's Phase 4. If this trailer is anything to go by, it should prove to be a thrilling opening chapter in the next Marvel movie saga.

I don't know jack about Black Widow beyond what's in the MCU, but all that looked pretty alright to me. Don't know why they didn't put this in Captain Marvel's spot. Then they wouldn't have needed to write a character out of Endgame, and might have had more time to make her not kinda suck. : \

I don't care what anyone says. I'd pay $15 just to watch SJ dig a hole for 2 hours and I'd be happy about it.

Awesome, finally! Wanted this more than Captain Marvel, and it would have fit into the last phase better.

@Archangel2222: Um... the title says "Marvel Releases First Black Widow Trailer" not "Marvel's Black Widow 'Release Trailer' "

It's not clickbait - Marvel did, in fact, release their first trailer for Black Widow, which you can watch above.
