The marketing for the Black Widow film has naturally been on the upswing since the start of the year and we were curious to see if Marvel Studios would purchase any Super Bowl time for it. The film is the first part of the Phase 4 era of films, which hasn’t made clear its intentions yet and could seed something significant into it. The big game gave us a bit of fresh material in a 30-second spot that goes for the serious side and hopefully will draw more people into checking it out more.
The film is set for a May 1st, 2020 debut.
The film is set to star Scarlet Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz.
We learned previously that Cate Shortland has signed on for the project after working on the Nazi drama film Lore previously. The Australian director doesn’t have a huge slate of films in her list but it factors into how Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige have worked previously when exploring projects like this, often to great success.
Plot Concept: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Natasha Romanoff is on the run from the government following her disobedience to the Sokovia Accords and for aiding Steve Rogers finds herself on her own and is forced to deal with “some of the red in her ledger”.
