Marvel drops final Black Widow trailer and Scarlett Johansson’s character isn’t messing about 1

Black Widow is set to land in cinemas in just two months time and Marvel are busy getting us all excited with a brand new trailer.

Grab your popcorn, people, because things are set to get intense.

The explosive new teaser – which is the final trailer ahead of Black Widow’s release date on 1 May – sees Scarlett Johansson back in action as her superhero alter ego.

The timeline of Black Widow takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers: Infinity War.

In the teaser, Natasha reunites with family back home, where she admits she’s on the run. The movie introduces a new masked villain Taskmaster, who is able to to mimic the physical capabilities of anyone they’re fighting.

Natasha reveals she made a lot of ‘enemies’ before becoming an Avenger and it looks like there’s unfinished business, as they’re pursuing her once more.

Flanked by her family, though, she declares she’s no longer ‘running’ from her past and prepares to fight.

A dramatic voiceover hears her say: ‘At some point we all have to choose between what the world wants you to be and who you are.’

Cue a ridiculous amount of explosive fight scenes interspersed with moments of comedy, thanks to David Harbour and Florence Pugh.

Stranger Things star David plays the Red Guardian, Natasha’s father, while Little Women’s Florence plays her sister, who is essentially a second Black Widow, as she’s a trained killer like Natasha.

Sharing an insight into the movie, lead actress Scarlett has said that Black Widow isn’t an ‘origins story’ and she had actually pushed for it not to be.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, she revealed: ‘I did not want it to be an origin story. I did not want it to be an espionage story. I didn’t want it to feel superficial at all.

‘I only wanted to do it if it actually fit where I was with that character. I had spent such a long time peeling those layers away—I felt that unless we got to something deep, then there was no reason to make it.’

Instead Black Widow will delve into the psyche of the character, with Scarlett revealing the movie gets pretty deep.

She said: ‘The film talks about a lot of tough stuff. It deals with a lot of trauma and pain. And I hope this film is empowering for people because I think Natasha is a very empowering person, and an inspiring person in a lot of ways.’

Black Widow hits cinemas on 1 May.
