Natasha Romanoff sacrificed herself in Avengers: Endgame to bring back everyone that Thanos snapped away in Avengers: Infinity War. But there’s more to the former SHIELD agent’s story in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and the villainy of Thanos, and we’ll see it unfold in Black Widow. Natasha reunites with the deadly makeshift family she had before falling in with The Avengers, and there’s likely betrayal and danger in her future (or rather her past).

Scarlett Johansson reprises her titular role as the deadly assassin turned superhero, and she’s joined by Florence Pugh as her “sister” Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov, aka The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz as Melina.

We’re not sure if any other Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be making a cameo or not. There have been rumblings of Hawkeye popping up, perhaps in a flashback that finally shows us what happened in Budapest all those years ago. One MCU character we’ve already seen in the trailer is General Thaddeus E.
Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige. It will kick off the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and may have some new details that help chart the path of future movies in the interconnected comic book movie franchise.
