If we weren’t in the darkest timeline right now, Marvel’s Black Widow would be arriving in theaters in a little under a month.

Natasha Romanoff may have sacrificed herself for the greater good in Avengers: Endgame, but that’s not stopping Black Widow from finally getting her own movie. And neither is coronavirus.
Black Widow is still slated for release in May (for now), and Marvel Studios just released the final trailer that reveals so much more about the movie taking place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers: Infinity War.

Natasha Romanoff sacrificed herself in Avengers: Endgame to bring back everyone that Thanos snapped away in Avengers: Infinity War. But there’s more to the former SHIELD agent’s story in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and the villainy of Thanos, and we’ll see it unfold in Black Widow. Natasha reunites with the deadly makeshift family she had before falling in with The Avengers, and there’s likely betrayal and danger in her future (or rather her past).

Amy March is probably one of the most hated characters in literary history. The youngest of the March sisters who come of age during the Civil War in Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Amy was always a little bratty, a little spoiled, a little too typical of the kind of feminine girls that young female readers always abhorred. Everyone wanted to be strong-willed Jo, the “not like other girls” tomboy and protagonist of Little Women. So when Amy committed her infamous act of sabotage against Jo, she shot to the top of the list of most-hated literary characters of all time.
But could Greta Gerwig‘s upcoming Little Women give a more forgiving depiction of Amy March than she has received in the past? The new Little Women clip, which shows Florence Pugh as Amy giving Timothée Chalamet‘s Laurie an economics lesson, suggests as much.
