“I’m done running from my past.” Black Widow fans, we hath been blessed on this day! Marvel has unveiled a new trailer for the highly anticipated Black Widow solo outing. While the wait has been long, arduous and torturous, at least we’re one step closer to finally seeing our fave Avenger on the big screen!

Trailer Breakdown

Now, the trailer opens with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) providing some context. She delves into her past prior to meeting her “family,” the Avengers. She admits she’s made mistakes along the way. But, like Agatha Harkness so eloquently put it, the only way forward is back. We see Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) confess that Natasha was “everything” to her. 

Additionally, there’s a flashback of Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian (David Harbour) adamantly asserting that his girls are the “strongest girls in the world.” Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) apologizes for what happened in Natasha’s past, but she had her “orders.” “They weren’t real,” Natasha counters.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Marvel trailer without an antagonist reveal. We see Ray Winstone‘s Dreykov order O-T Fagbenle‘s Mason (presumably Taskmaster) to “bring her home.” The Black Widow trailer ends with Natasha proclaiming she’s done running from her past as she faces off against a formidable foe. 

Marvel ensures that this trailer is equal parts heartfelt and action-packed. There’s even a smattering of humor. It’s quite clear that family is a central theme in Black Widow. Natasha formed close bonds with her Avengers family. Now, she must step back into the past to reunite with her Red Room family. 

Personally, I’m so excited for this flick. It’s about damn time that Natasha received her moment in the spotlight. Admittedly, it’s long overdue, but I’ll take what I can get. Bring it on!
