A solo Black Widow film has been hypothesised ever since ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. Fan theories on what the plot would be, and even fan made posters were created in the hopes that Marvel Studios would listen to the requests. And they finally have…after they released ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
‘Black Widow’ sees Scarlett Johansson return as Natasha Romanoff, aka. Black Widow and takes place between the events of ‘Civil War’ and ‘Infinity War’.
This film looks incredible and it’s great to see Scarlett Johansson finally take the lead on the big screen. I’ve always thought she was a fantastic actress and I’m glad another female Marvel character has a solo film. The action scenes look exciting, and it’s also great to see David Harbour (Stranger Things) be introduced into the Marvel Universe.
Natasha’s background also looks interesting, if a little strained. Hopefully the film will delve more into her backstory of why she sees the Avengers as her true family.
While the film looks fantastic, the timing of the film is wrong and takes away the impact of ‘Avengers: Endgame’. It’s all a lot, but just a little too late.
‘Black Widow’ will be in cinemas 1st May 2020.
