What will Black Widow be about?
Black Widow takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. "Where we find Natasha in her life at this point is very specific," Johansson told Entertainment Weekly. "She really is in a dark place where she's got no one to call and nowhere to go. She's really grappling with her own self. When something huge explodes and all the pieces are landing, you have that moment of stillness where you don't know what to do next -- that's the moment that she's in. In that moment, you actually have to face yourself."
Also, per concept art revealed at D23, she gets a new white suit.
The film introduces fellow spy Yelena (Florence Pugh), Red Guardian (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz). Furthermore, the film will focus on the conflict between Black Widow and long-standing Avengers enemy Taskmaster, a villain who can perfectly master any physical skill that he observes.
Despite only having been in the early stages of filming, Marvel brought a short teaser trailer to San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The clip featured what seems to have been a playful, albeit violent spat between Natasha and Yelena that ends in the pair taking vodka shots and catching up. The sequence takes place in what appears to be Budapest, long a source of fan inquiry thanks to Hawkeye's cryptic quip to Black Widow in the first Avengers movie: "You and I remember Budapest very differently!"
There aren't many plot details past that. However, the film promises to flesh out Natasha's backstory within the MCU, something sorely needed given that she's arguably the primary Avenger we know the least about.
At Marvel Studios' Comic-Con panel, Johansson said, "I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman, in all of her many facets. I'm excited for fans to see what she perceives to be the flawed side of her, and I'm looking to wipe out some of that red in my ledger."
