The fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally upon us, team. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the first teaser trailer for Black Widow dropped for and, damn, it looks so freaking good.
The two minute trailer begins with a montage of Black Widow's most memorable moments. That means the first 20 seconds of the trailer is largely a mash up of footage from previous Marvel films, with Scarlett Johansson's character, Natasha Romanoff, giving a solemn monologue over the top. "I used to have nothing. And then I got this job, this family, but nothing lasts forever," she says, referring to her fellow team Avengers.
The pinnacle of the trailer is a fight scene with Florence Pugh, who is playing Yelena Belova, and in case you're wondering who Yelena is, it all becomes clear when Natasha says, "It's good to see you too, sis." The second most exciting moment form the trailer is when David Harbour's character, Alexei turns up.
There are a few under the radar details that MCU Twitter was quick to notice, comment on, and fall madly in love with. Like the fact Yelena Belova is wearing the green vest that Natasha wore in Infinity War, and also Alexei's line, "Family. Back together again."
Marvel news has been a bit light on since the launch of Disney+, The Mandalorian (and, of course, the rise of Baby Yoda), so we're excited to have our first glimpse back into the MCU. Black Widow will premiere worldwide on May 1, 2020, and we. Can't. Wait.
