Disney and Marvel have released the second and presumably final full length trailer for Cate Shortland’s Black Widow, the first Disney MCU film in over a year since the release of Avengers: Endgame (Spider-Man: Far From Home was released by Sony).
This trailer continues to present the film as stylised sounds thriller revolving around the family of Black Widow and her finally confronting her past, as she comes up against the villain Taskmaster.
The action set pieces look really good and is the first time since ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ (arguably their best ever film) that the MCU has embraced this genre.
One of the things I am most interested in here are the performances, and I am hoping this incredibly talented cast (Scar Jo, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz etc) are given enough to do and really express themselves.
Florence Pugh in particular seems to be doing interesting work and I can’t wait to see her career continue to go into the stratosphere.
The film will indeed launch worldwide on 1st May, with seemingly no delay due to the Corona Virus, and it will be interesting to see how it performs.
