Black Widow is finally releasing this July–both in theaters and via Disney+ streaming–and the movie’s latest trailer gives us a hint at Natasha Romanoff and the family, sort of, that she had prior to joining the Avengers.
“You don’t know everything about me. I’ve lived a lot of lives before I was an Avenger,” Scarlett Johansson’s Romanoff says in the trailer. “Before I got this family. I made mistakes choosing between what the world wants you to be and who you are.”
The trailer shows how Romanoff will need to examine her past, showing a younger version of the character briefly before an adult Romanoff and Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) confront each other and gunpoint and engage in close-quarters combat.
We also get a brief look at David Harbour’s Red Guardian, who praises his girls’ abilities before an action sequence culminates in a car chase. That’s where the bow-wielding Taskmaster makes an appearance, firing an explosive arrow that lands under a car and sends Romanoff flying into the air.
“One thing’s for sure: I’m done running from my past,” she says as she skids down a skyscraper.
Black Widow releases June 9. This will be over a year past its original May 2020 release window, which was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a little over two hours, so you can probably make it through the film without a bathroom break, unlike the last few Avengers movies.
