Scarlett Johansson is back as “Black Widow” in a film that will mark the debut of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

The story will follow Russian spy Natasha Romanoff through events that took place between the films “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War”.


Audiences will see her resume contact with her sister Yelena, played by Florence Pugh, Alexei the Red Guardian (David Harbour), and Melina, a former black widow (Rachel Weisz).


All of this is good news for fans of Black Widow who have not seen the charismatic arachnid since her disappearance in “Avengers: Endgame”, released in 2019.

Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, the action movie “Black Widow” will be released in theaters on May 1, 2020. Johansson joined the Marvel Universe in 2010 in “Iron Man 2” alongside Robert Downey Jr.

Since then her character has appeared in the blockbusters “Avengers” (2012), “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015), “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) and “Avengers: Endgame” (2019). IB/NVG
