Black Widow trailer: Scarlett Johansson has to go back to where it all started

If Marvel fans haven’t managed to recover from the shade thrown at their films by Martin Scorsese recently, seeing a first trailer for Black Widow might be just the thing to make them feel better. It's a long overdue standalone film for Natalia Alianova "Natasha" Romanova and it will also be used to kick-start Phase 4 of the MCU. The film will travel back to events following Captain American: Civil War to flesh out her back story and what she got up to before the arrival of Thanos in Infinity War. Johansson is currently getting ready for award season with multiple nominations expected for her performance in Marriage Story, although it will be interesting to see if there is any more backlash regarding her comments about casting representation and if that will affect her chances. For now, watch the Black Widow trailer above to see more.

Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Natasha Romanoff finds herself alone and forced to confront her past.

Cate Shortland (Lore) is directing, with the support cast featuring the excellent Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz, along with Ray Winstone, David Harbour and O-T Fagbenle.

Black Widow opens in UK and US cinemas on May 1, 2020.
