Marvel Studios dropped a new look at Black Widow on Monday night, offering fans their best look yet at the eagerly anticipated solo film that takes fans into a previously unexplored time in Natasha Romanoff's (Scarlett Johansson) life in the time after the events of Captain America: Civil War. This new look at the film offered fans loads of new footage from the film which is set to debut in theaters in May and fans quickly took to social media to share their excitement over the action, the best look yet at Taskmaster, and more.
Black Widow stars Johansson alongside Oscar nominee Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova and David Harbour as Red Guardian. Harbour has previously teased that fans will get to see a lot more of Natasha's life outside of being a member of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which will reveal new insight into her character's sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame.
"It's great because you get to go back a little bit in time with her, right?" Harbour told ComicBook.com. "And you get to explore these events and that's one of the things that was interesting to me in the movie was because you know the events of Endgame so you get to explore how she got there and how she got there to make that choice."
"I think that's the interesting part of her narrative is that we get to go back and explore this period of time between the events of Civil War and that particular arc," he continued. "One of our things is we've known each other for a really long time and that relationship plays into the stuff that's come beyond. The great thing about knowing the end of an arc, you get to go back and either foreshadow or play against it and it's very joyful for fans to see these moments or prepped character beats come in at times."
