When Natasha Romanoff was killed off in “Avengers: Endgame,” the fury fans unleashed was immense, to say the least.
One thing that kept them from burning down the house (of mouse) was the fact that we would be getting a standalone Black Widow movie in 2020.
On Monday night (Jan. 13), Marvel Studios unleashed a new trailer for the forthcoming release, though it does use a lot of previously seen footage. From the second the trailer begins, you can feel the action spy-thriller vibes from the minute-and-a-half clip.
The sneak-peek begins with everyone’s favorite secret agent assassin (Scarlett Johansson) meeting up with her un-biological sister Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh). During their meet up, Natasha tells Yelena that she’s on the run after “trying to do something good” (a callback to the fact that this film is supposed to take place after the events in “Captain America: Civil War” but before “Avengers: Infinity War”).
The action goes into overdrive after we get reacquainted with the rest of Natasha’s family members Alexei Shostakov aka Red Guardian (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz). We are introduced to the new generation of Black Widows who seem to be just as deadly as Natasha, Yelena, and Melina, and yes, we get to finally see the Taskmaster in all his glory take on the Red Guardian.

“Black Widow” kicks its way into theaters on May 1.
