Let’s break down Black Widow’s first trailer.
Surprise! Marvel has dropped the first trailer for Natasha Romanoff’s solo movie, Black Widow, and it’s jam-packed with never-before-seen footage, new characters, and all sorts of hints as to just what our favorite super-spy might’ve been getting up to back in that weird, vague time period between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. We get our very first look at Rachel Weiss’s Melina Vostokoff, Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, and David Harbor’s Red Guardian, as well as not one but two brand new costumes for Natasha herself and a few up-close-and-personal moments with the movie’s villain, Taskmaster.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an MCU movie if the trailers gave everything away, so there’s still plenty of mystery to speculate on–but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to do our best to pull out every shred of information from these 2 minutes and 9 seconds. We’ve combed through the trailer frame-by-frame and come up with some critical details, hints, and clues as to Natasha’s story. Let’s break it down.
