Remember when Black Widow died in Avengers: Endgame? Dumbfounded fans may have seen it coming but it still ached when she fell to her death in Vormir. But, we bet that a lot of people, especially those who have not read the comic books, have little to no in-depth knowledge about the character's lore. Limited information was available about her in her stint in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For one, she was among the founding members of the Avengers. Luckily, a standalone film about one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most prized agent premieres in April 2020. And on December 2, 2019, the first official trailer has become available on YouTube. The two-minute clip contained enough teasers and details to get fans hyped for 2020. But what and who is in Marvel's Black Widow movie?
The trailer opens with a clip of Budapest, so fans might finally see why the place is frequently mentioned on Barton and Romanoff's banters. And we mentioned lore a while ago. Since this film is a standalone movie, it is safe to say that the Red Room would have an extensive run through since it was Natasha's training ground, so we'll watch out for that. Meanwhile, a clip featuring a new character named Taskmaster was shown for a brief period. Could this mean that he(?) will be the antagonist of the movie? Also seen in the movie was David Harbour, who recently appeared on the big screen as the Dark Horse comic character Hellboy. In this film, Harbour will star as the Red Guardian. How significant will Red Guardian be to Black Widow's story? If you want to know more details about the trailer video to get you excited, feel free to browse and read through the list we have collated below.
Marvel seemed successful in implying that Budapest is a very important place in Black Widow's backstory. It started in 2012 when Black Widow and Hawkeye likened fighting the Chitauri with what happened back in Budapest. And again, the two made a reference to Budapest when they were on Vormir to retrieve the Soul Stone. With Budapest included in the start of the trailer, will we see a flashback on what really transpired back there?
Unlike Natasha Romanoff's compact costume from the earlier Marvel Cinematic Universe films, her outfit in her standalone film feels more battle-ready as it appears bulkier. It also has straps that could've been attached to a parachute or something, given the fact that there is a visible plane crash behind her. This look first appeared in the official D23 concept art poster.
Black Widow has always been known to don her trademark suit. But in the official trailer for Marvel's Black Widow movie, a clip shows that she had used a white costume. The costume was designed by the Red Room program to help their agents dominate fights in a snowy place. But based on the dialogue on the trailer, it seems that Romanoff wore it while she infiltrates the Red Room training grounds.
The trailer also previewed Taskmaster. Nobody knows who or what is Taskmaster. Based on the comics, Taskmaster is a hitman who can imitate anything that he sees. Marvel comic fans familiar with the character in the comics will be baffled, as the mask worn by Taskmaster in this film is a lot different than in the comic books. But as seen in the video, where Taskmaster uses a bow and an arrow, does it imply that the assassin and Hawkeye had already encountered in the past?
David Harbour, who is widely known today as Jim Hopper on Netflix's Stranger Things, joins the MCU as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian and fans are given a sneak peek of his character in the Black Widow trailer. Based on the comics, Shostakov was an Astronaut who submitted to be Russia's weapon against the Avengers. Many are theorizing whether Red Guardian is also a super-soldier. Has the USSR succeeded to recreate the super-soldier serum?
