The official release date for Black Widow was initially for May 1, but the pandemic forced Marvel to take up the November 6, 2020 slot. But fans in the US might have to stop using the internet for some weeks as the date in the UK is set on October 28.
What’s it about?
“The film talks about a lot of tough stuff. It deals with a lot of trauma and pain,” said Johansson. “And so by elevating the genre I mean I hope that it can be both explosive and dynamic and have all that great fun stuff that goes with the genre, but I hope that we can also talk about, you know, self-doubt and insecurity and shame and disappointment and regret and all that stuff too.”
In Black Widow’s trailer, we came to know a lot more about the plot of the film, and a lot more about its villain, Taskmaster. He can mimic the abilities of other Avengers and strategies and has an army of Red Room assassins under his control.
But there is a scene in the final trailer where Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova is strapped to an operating table with a line drawn around her face. Does it mean that it was Natasha’s face on Yelena’s body? If Yelena had died, where is the real Natasha? Why would she hide behind someone’s face? We have a lot of questions!
Scarlett Johansson returns as Black Widow herself and is joined by David Harbour as Alanovich Shostakov or aka Red Guardian, Florence Pugh, as Yelena Belova, who is also known as the second Black Widow. O-T Fagbenle and Melina play Mason by Rachel Weisz.
What are her powers?
While she might not have an iron armor or might not become a big green monster when angry, she does possess various skills which are essential to any squad fighting against evil. She is an expert tactician and an excellent one-one combatant, she ages slowly and has an enhanced immune system. She is a fantastic marksman and has a mastery of war machinery and weaponry. She is often regarded as the weakest Avenger, but she is by no means any less necessary than others.
