Black Widow’s new trailer reveals Taskmaster’s villainous mission

The ‘final’ trailer also takes us back to Natasha’s childhood

Black Widow got a new release date last week and now it has a new “final” trailer. With all the movie’s delays so far, it seems that Marvel doesn’t want to give much more of the plot away, so this latest trailer has a few new scenes and plenty that we’ve seen before.

The trailer starts out with some familiar narration from previous previews of the movie. Black Widow talks about how she had a previous life, one from before her time as an Avenger. And while previous trailers have focused on people she knew from her past life like, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz), this is the first time that we’ve actually seen flashbacks all the way to Natasha’s childhood, and just how far back her connection to these characters goes.

Of course, there’s more than just history in the trailer as well. There’s also our best look yet at Taskmaster, the movie’s apparent villain. Taskmaster is sent to hunt down Natasha and it seems like he can match her every move, including fighting in midair on what appears to be a destroyed airplane or satellite. The entire back half of the trailer is filled with action and it seems that Black Widow might take us all over the globe to finally learn about Natasha’s past.

As an added bonus, the trailer ends with a fantastic new Russian-inspired version of the Avengers theme.

Black Widow has been delayed for over a year now, but is currently set for release on July 9, when it will hit theaters and Disney Plus via Premier Access.
