Marvel Studios has released a new Black Widow clip and TV spot for their long-awaited MCU film, which is scheduled to finally make its debut this Friday, July 9 in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access. The clip features David Harbour’s Red Guardian as he breaks out of prison with the guidance of Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha. However, it won’t be an easy escape for Red Guardian as he gets surrounded by guards and prisoners. Meanwhile the TV spot features some bits of new footage highlighting the chemistry between Oscar nominees Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh.
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, the upcoming film will serve as the first feature in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4. Joining Johansson are David Harbour as Alexei/Red Guardian, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff. Joining them are William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross, Ray Winstone as Dreykov, and O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason.
Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland (Lore) from a screenplay written by WandaVision head writer Jac Schaeffer, who is continuing her partnership with the studio after recently signing an overall deal with Marvel Studios and 20th Television.
