The fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally upon us, team. On Feb. 2, Marvel dropped a special Super Bowl trailer for Black Widow – a follow-up to the trailers released in January – and, damn, it looks so freaking good.
The first teaser 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 Avengers.
The pinnacle of the other trailers are a fight scene with Florence Pugh, who is playing Yelena Belova, and 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.” In the new Super Bowl trailer, there’s more epic fight scenes and Natasha teaming up with her family before the Avengers, working with her “sister” and kicking serious ass in the process. We even get a glimpse inside the widow assassin school (the “new world of widows,” as Natasha calls it) and see a pyrotechnic-rich gunfight between Natasha and a masked enemy.
Watch all the trailers for Black Widow ahead and get ready for the worldwide premiere on May 1, 2020. We. Can’t. Wait.
