If you were watching tonight’s National Championship game between the Clemson Tigers and the LSU Tigers on ESPN you likely got to see a brand-new special look at Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow.”
Black Widow is the code name of Natasha Romanoff (played by Scarlett Johansson). It’s not an origin story, but rather a return to the roots of the character and a time before she became an Avenger.
Watch the special look trailer:
We see a new character in the special trailer – The Taskmaster. He (or she) is an old foe from the comic books.
As for time-line we understand that this movie takes place between Doctor Strange and Black Panther. That means a few other people from the Marvel Cinematic Universe could show up as well.
Update: Marvel Studios also dropped a new featurette covering the legacy of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, since her first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe 10 years ago in “Iron Man 2.”
