New Black Widow Trailer Delivers Action And A Mysterious New Villain

Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh star in the latest MCU movie, which releases in May.


The new trailer for Black Widow is here. The Marvel movie focuses on Scarlett Johansson's Russian agent-turned-Avenger, and it's set to hit theaters in May. [Update: That is no longer the case, as Black Widow has been delayed. It does not yet have a new release date.]

This latest trailer is very action-heavy and shows Natasha Romanoff reconnecting with fellow Black Widow agent Yelena Belova, played by Midsommar's Florence Pugh. The pair have to fight a mysterious new masked enemy named Taskmaster, with David Harbour's veteran Russian superhero Red Guardian on hand to help. Watch also for William Hurt in his regular MCU role as Thaddeus Ross. Check the trailer out below.

Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland, and also stars Rachel Weisz, O.T. Fagbenle, and Ray Winstone. It releases on May 1, 2020.

The first Black Widow trailer was released in December. A "special look" preview appeared in January, as did this Super Bowl teaser. For more, check GameSpot's guides to Yelena Belova and Red Guardian.

Black Widow is the first of two Marvel Cinematic Universe movies releasing in 2020. The Eternals hits theaters in November, and stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, and Brian Tyree Henry. In addition, there are several new MCU shows in the works for Disney+, including WandaVision, Loki, She-Hulk, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
