New Black Widow Trailer Is Released During Super Bowl
Fans have been treated to a new trailer for the Black Widow Marvel spin-off film.
The Avengers spin-off stars sees Scarlett Johansson back as Russian killer Natasha Romanoff in her first solo Marvel film.
She stars alongside Florence Pugh, who plays her 'sis' Yelena Belova. Rachel Weisz also appears opposite Johansson as Melina Vostokoff, as does David Harbour (known to Stranger Things fans as Hopper), who plays Red Guardian.
To be honest, this movie looks like it will be unbelievable.
The Super Bowl trailer was snappy, but gives us a good look at all the action and badassery that will be squeezed into the film.
So what can we expect from the movie? Well, Black Widow - aka Natasha Romanova - was given to the KGB at birth, and was groomed and conditioned into becoming its ultimate agent.
But following the break-up of the USSR, the government tried to killer her off, leading her to become a freelance operative in present-day New York.
This standalone film will find her living in the US 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, and at some point you'd have to imagine we're going to learn about her involvement with Nick Fury's S.H.I.E.L.D. organisation.
Alongside Scarlett, Robert Downey Jr is rumoured to return as Iron Man/Tony Stark, and it looks like the world's tallest bodybuilder will also be joining the cast.
