The final trailer for Black Widow was released today and it makes the wait for May even harder. The upcoming MCU film will focus on Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) as she confronts her past once and for all. How drastically will the events of the film change her?

The trailer is very plot heavy, giving us a better look at the story. Natasha has returned home but the family reunion doesn’t last long. A new threat, Taskmaster, has emerged and created a massive problem for the spy/assassin family. Taskmaster has taken over the Red Room, the exclusive assassin training program that Natasha was once a part of. Now, the girls have been trained but they have no control over their actions – so it’s a group of Black Widows up against the Black Widow! As a result, they need to return to where she was “made” to stop Taskmaster and make sure no one has to endure what she went through ever again.

Of course, this film is going to be incredibly action heavy, which may or may not benefit it. In the final act of the film, it looks like there’s going to be a whole lot of stretching of the imagination when it comes to physics. However, the film does appear to have an ongoing, grounded theme of family and togetherness. Since we’ve only seen Natasha with her Avengers family, how different will the dynamics be between them? 

Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, O-T Fagbenle, and William Hurt.
