There is a terrific surprise for all the marvel fans out there. Another highly anticipated movie under Marvel Cinematic Universe in on the cards.
Black Widow, the popular Marvel comic character is getting its solo movie next year starring Scarlett Johnson. Read the full article to know all the leaked details so far.
Black Widow, also called as Natasha Romanova was introduced as a Russians spy in the Iron Man movie as an opponent to Iron Man. The character has been played by Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. After making her entry in various MCU movies, she finally became the sixteenth member of the Avengers superhero team.
This movie is expected to be something different than other Avengers movies under the direction of Cate Shortland. It was long-planned by MCU until last year when finally the execution started and the star cast and plot got finalised.
The majority of the plot revolves around Y2K virus which was disabled by black widow in 1999. As per this timeline, this movie could be a prequel of all the movies came in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Natasha was a Russian spy trained in high tech weaponry by the US government making her into an assassin. After the dissolution of the USSR, the government wanted to kill Romanova as she is an assassin and it could be dangerous for them. From here all the action starts in the movie.
Also, we will get to know how Romanova became what she is right now and how she went through her grooming to become Black widow from an ordinary girl. It will reveal her past and show her journey about whatever has happened to her. There will be a big revelation of what had happened in Budapest (mentioned by Hawkeye in the Avengers first movie) which is still a secret till now.
Scarlett Johnson is brilliantly playing this character since iron man 2 and completely nailing it. She will reprise her lead role in the movie indeed. On getting a solo movie she seemed pretty excited and said to the media, “It is an opportunity to explore the Widow as a woman who has come into her own and is making independent and active choices for herself, probably for once in her life..since she hasn’t always had that possibility.”
Apart from Johnson in the lead role, the other star cast confirmed is David Harbour, O.T. Fagbenle, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and Ray Winstone.
This is currently the only movie which is under the production of Marvel Cinematic Universe as of now so we are expecting it to be released on the schedule. Disney has planned its theatrical release on May 1st, 2020. Filming had already started a few months back in Norway and England which is expected to be finished in another 3 months.
So, we don’t have to wait much to see the movie. How excited are you to see Black Widow? Do you think it would be able to compete with other solo movies of MCU? Let us know in the comments below.
