As we know Black widow’s trailer has been out and fans are expecting much more from Scarlett Johansson’s movie. After Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) sacrificed her life in Avengers: Endgame, fans were expecting a prequel about her life telling how she turned into Black Widow. But the trailer and the news have made it clear that it is not just a traditional prequel that explains origin of Black Widow explaining how she flips or how she got her widow stingers. Instead the movie revolves around her time as a superhero.
In 2012, during Avengers press tour, a Black Widow prequel was in discussions but the plans went otherwise. Fans wanted a movie consisting life of Natasha Romanoff, starting from how she was trained, her time in Red Room, carrying out missions before she was recruited by S.H.I.E.LD. by Hawkeye, but the movie instead is around the period between Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. Natasha Romanoff is running from her old life, as seen in the trailers it seems to be a dangerous conspiracy. As she cannot call upon her allies for help, Natasha have to make her childhood Russian allies whom she went undercover with as a child.
Although not the origin of Black Widow, the movie will highlight Black Widow spy skills to fight enemies. She will face her family that she had left. The trailer shows an unidentified villain that has taken control of the Red room and is forcing the recruits work for him.
The movie also shows the guilt that Natasha is having on abandoning Yelena, which urged her decision to go to Russia and take back the Red Room in the movie. Natasha is seen having dinner with her family although happy but nervous as well. Although not origin the movie explains how Natasha has a violent past before Avengers.
The movie is expected to be the biggest movie of the year with a wonderful opening. The movie was originally set to release on May 1, 2020, after Global health concerns Disney pushed back to November 6, but now Disney pushed back further and decided to release Black Widow in May 2021.
