Marvel released a new teaser trailer for BLACK WIDOW starring Scarlett Johansson, and it seems the story doesn't take place before her Avenger days, but somewhere in between. We also get to see a lot of cool action scenes, and a first look at David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian, Rachel Weisz and this year's break out star Florence Pugh as Natasha's sister. A new simple but effective movie poster was also released.

Many presumed BLACK WIDOW would get a sort of origins story, or pre-Avengers plot but the new trailer throws out those theories. The preview opens with a narration by Natasha explaining her reason for leaving her Avenger family to sort out her past as a Russian spy. While it doesn't specify when she returned to Russia, one outlet states the events occur between CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. This may be confusing for many since Natasha sacrificed her life in AVENGERS: ENDGAME so Black Widow is no more after the final AVENGER film.
BLACK WIDOW opens May 1, 2020.
Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow in Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow”—the first film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, “Black Widow” hits U.S. theaters on May 1, 2020.
