‘Black Widow’ Trailer: Natasha Confronts Her Past (And Taskmaster)
The latest trailer for Black Widow, which will inaugurate “Phase Four” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, features a lot of the same stuff from previous clips, including Scarlett Johansson’s reunion with Florence Pugh, who were both trained by the same Russian spy program, and David Harbour as Red Guardian, delighted that his old team is back together.
The cool new stuff in this one is mostly the fight between Johansson’s Natasha and the mysterious Taskmaster. In Marvel Comics, he’s a mercenary with the ability to copy any fighting move he sees. Hence he’s got a shield like Captain America; at some point he studied Cap’s techniques and stole them. So anything Natasha does, Taskmaster can copy. Which should make for some very interesting fight scenes — hopefully the best in the history of the MCU.
Here’s the new trailer:
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
