If things had gone according to plan, Black Widow would’ve hit theaters by now. But of course, 2020 is not a normal year, and the long-awaited solo film devoted to Scarlett Johansson‘s spy-turned-superhero was pushed back to November. But we don’t have to wait that long to learn what sounds like an important plot detail: the passing of the baton from Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff to Florence Pugh‘s Yelena Belova.

Birds of Prey scripts

Stuck inside with hours to spare, ordinary people resort to baking bread or taking up embroidery. But celebrities and stunt people are getting a little more creative with their extra time and isolation.

Black Widow Trailer

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. A villain calling himself Taskmaster has taken over the assassin group known as the Red Room, the organization which turned Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) into a weapon. We’re not sure what his plan is exactly, but it likely has something to do with toppling governments and taking over the world. Standard villain stuff. Watch the new Black Widow trailer below.
