Black Widow also stars Oscar nominee Florence Pugh as a sister-like figure to Johnansson's Natasha Romanoff, and well as Oscar victor Rachel Weisz. "Black Widow" will be released in Hungarian cinemas on April 30, 2020. The film is slated to release on May 1, 2020, in the U.S. and on April 30, 2020, in India. But as the first teaser indicated, Black Widow is finally pulling back the curtain on the enigmatic, complicated hero.
As an added bonus, the trailer includes additional action involving Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz), Red Guardian (David Harbour) and Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), a character who goes on to become the next Black Widow in the comics. That gives the marketing team a nice little angle to play in promotion in the coming weeks (more if either of them wind up taking home trophies), but as seen in the footage above that dropped tonight, the material doesn't really need any kind of extra advantages.
In particular, we get to see Natasha (who is on the run after Captain America: Civil War) duke it out with the famous Marvel villain known as Taskmaster, as she tries to protect the latest generation of Black Widows. The movie is directed by Cate Shortland.
Meanwhile, Shortland expressed her excitement at seeing the "real" Natasha. However, with Natasha Romanoff's introduction back in Marvel Studios' Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson has racked up numerous appearances as Black Widow across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "And that was a really nice thing to get to, and of course I got to be with the Black Widow and watch her work, which was pretty unbelievable considering she's been the only female superhero for the past 10 years".
