The solo movie of Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Widow’ is coming in 2020 to tell the origin story of one of the enigmatic Avengers. Scarlett Johansson stars as Natasha Romanoff, better known by her alter ego, Black Widow, who has lived many secret lives before becoming a part of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Directed by Cate Shortland, ‘Black Widow’ will be in cinemas on May 1, 2020. After the introduction of the character in 2010-released ‘Iron Man 2’ (as Natalie Rushman), she has been constantly featured regularly in The Avengers and Captain America film series.
So far we have seen Black Widow and her journey from a spy, an assassin to an Avenger. The last we saw Natasha Romanoff is in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and since then audiences mourn the loss of such a prominent character. In the film, she makes the decision to sacrifice herself for Barton to acquire the Soul Stone.

The story is set in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. As an origin story, in the trailer, we are introduced to Natasha Romanoff’s past where she reunites with other characters, including her sister-like Yelena Belova (second Black Widow), as well as Alexei aka the Red Guardian.
‘Black Widow’ is going to start yet another chapter in Marvel’s multiple superhero film franchises, after the final chapter of the Avengers film series. However, we certainly can expect a lot more, as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has bigger plans, including the upcoming The Eternals – scheduled for a November 6, 2020 release.
