You’d think that Marvel would’ve picked a more prime time to drop the highly awaited Black Widow trailer than midnight but it’s nonetheless. The trailer mostly delivers the goods as we see one more outing from the dearly departed Natasha Romanoff as she tracks down the demons of her past. Let’s get into the breakdown, shall we?
Unsurprisingly, the trailer opens with Nat’s poignant line to Steve from Avengers: Endgame, a callback to her last appearance. Weirdly enough, the line is intercut with flashbacks to the Helicarrier scene in the first Avengers film and Nick Fury when the word ‘family’ is mentioned. That “Nothing lasts forever” line is a deleted line from the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. Some odd callback choices but thematically aligned with what the rest of the trailer showcases.
We jump to Budapest, the infamous location of Nat and Clint’s skirmish. Even though I don’t think we’ll see the actual ‘incident’ take place in the film, I’m guessing whatever happened then will be referenced.
Nat’s on the run from the powers-that-be aka Thunderbolt Ross himself. We’ve known his appearance in this film for some time but it’s still a nice surprise to see him in the trailer. Albeit, unsettling due to the de-aging CGI done to William Hurt‘s face which was surprising, to begin with since Hurt didn’t look all that young when he appeared in Captain America: Civil War, the time period this film is set in. Unless this scene is set way before any of his MCU appearances.
She rendezvous with one Yelena Belova, played by the lovely Florence Pugh. The reunion is not without turmoil as the two Widows duke it out, mirroring each other’s moves, highlighting the similar training they received in the Red Room.
It’s unclear what exactly they’re after or what organization is after them apart from Ross. We see one of the few new suits Nat dons as she stands around a crash site, about to be surrounded by Ross’ people.
This scene in the trailer where Natasha, Yelena, and an unnamed third person jump on a falling structure is reminiscent of the Bourne franchise.
This frozen location looks similar to the Siberian HYDRA facility that held Bucky and the Winter Soldiers but given how both stories are in the same time period, I wouldn’t count on them being the same facility. Putting together this scene and subsequent scenes in the trailer, Natasha and Yelena are there to break out an old comrade.
Initially introduced in the only Marvel TV show recognized by the films, Agent Carter, we see a very modernized version of the Red Room. All those synchronized Widows in their gear looks absolutely badass.
Hot off their heels in the Budapest chase is Taskmaster, who we finally see in action for a second. Not gonna lie, I kinda wish they showed him in his full hooded caped garb.
So the frozen fortress is a gulag housing David Harbour‘s Red Guardian, who pretty much steals the entire trailer. Harbour hamming it up as a crazy Russian is now one of the things I’m looking forward to the most in this film. Just from his appearance in this trailer, I hope he doesn’t bite the dust by the end of this film.
It’s a mini family reunion for the Russians. Nat and Yelena are in their white suits while Harbor suits up in his Red Guardian armor that looks pretty cool live-action. We also finally see Rachel Weisz‘s Malena. It’s also been pointed out by the folks on Twitter that Yelena’s vest is identical to Nat’s vest in Avengers: Infinity War. We hope it’s not a remembrance for Nat.
It’s a showdown between Red Guardian and Taskmaster. If the comics are any indication, we know who’s gonna win in that fight. If they water down Taskmaster and have him get pummelled by Red Guardian, I’ll be immensely disappointed.
I wasn’t expecting a crazy aerial sequence to feature Nat of all people but she has shown the ability to do absolutely go through batshit moments no other mortal would withstand (i.e. her hitching on a moving Chitauri ship in the first Avengers). This is the money shot of the trailer and it looks insane. If I had to guess, this is the 3rd act sequence that ends with her being surrounded by (presumably) Ross’ people in that crash site.
Also, that title card looks really cool.
The last few days have been absolutely chock full of news and rumors about Marvel’s Disney+ shows, and we at MCUExchange have been more than happy to eat it all up like candy! One of the shows that has the fans most excited is Moon Knight, and while there is nothing confirmed for casting or even a release date yet, we now have a double dose of new rumors to help us with the wait. Two new reports from MCU Cosmic and DanielRPK have revealed that the new MCU hero will be doing battle against two of his most famous villains from the comics: Bushman and Werewolf. These can only be classified as rumors at this point, but the implications are exciting nonetheless!
Jack Russell originated back in the ’70s in “Werewolf by Night,” where Moon Knight made his original debut as something of an antagonist against Russell before moving to hero status a short time later. It was reported back in August that Marvel had been planning to use the character in one of their future movies or TV series, and it seems to be narrowing in on Moon Knight, which would be a great fit and would lead to some very exciting potential storylines for all the characters involved.
The Bushman news is expected for the series, seeing as he was the character that nearly killed Marc Spector in the first place and fully pushed his transformation into the white cape and cowl. Both villains could also lead into connections with other MCU properties, most notably Blade, and the thought of Mahershala Ali doing battle with either of these adversaries in the future would have all of us fans shaking in our boots with anticipation.
With both Bushman and Werewolf by Night rumored to have some kind of a role in Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight, the possibilities get more exciting by the day as we continue waiting for the official release on Disney+!

Finally, after months of waiting and years of anticipation, the first trailer for Natasha Romanoff’s solo outing, Black Widow is now here along with a poster! Check out the trailer below!

So that looks pretty intense. It’s exciting to finally see a glimpse of Yelena Belova, Taskmaster, and David Harbour‘s Red Guardian, who looks hilarious. Thunderbolt Ross appearance at the beginning is also super cool to see. Those aerial sequences look also absolutely stunning and it’s crazy to see that at a Black Widow film nonetheless. Also, that white suit looks dope. We’ll be breaking this down further in a separate article so stay tuned.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is deep in production and many eagle-eyed fans have been taking set photos recently. The said photos have spread in social media like wildfire and it shows several teases for the MCU Disney+ series. It already revealed first looks at Sebastian Stan‘s new look as Bucky and a grand introduction of the government’s Captain America replacement, US Agent. And now, a new report from our friend Charles Murphy revealed several set photos taken by a fan which revealed signage from a fictional company which includes a line that says, “Rebuilding Your City After the Blip.”
It is already a given that the Blip has made a big impact on the lives of everyone in the MCU. We already saw it touched upon during Spider-Man: Far From Home and the Disney+ series presents a good avenue to explore different sides of how it affected the lives of many. There is no telling if the signage could just be a random ad from the street or the fictional Samson Development company would play a major role in the series. However, we could expect a lot of references to the events of Avengers Endgame since the series is a great opportunity to dig deep into the current state of the world.
In a previous interview with Discussing Film, series writer Derek Kolstad, said that it will be ‘fun to explore the post-Blip world.’
In a post-blip world, while touching upon the darkness of it all, there’s got to be some resilient fun to it.
It is true that the Blip gave a traumatizing experience to many but it can also give stories of hope and resilience in which Falcon and the Winter Soldier can address. This presents an avenue to explore different street-level stories of post-Blip experiences which can help serve as an added inspiration for Sam and Bucky. It will also be intriguing how they will address the return of Baron Zemo in the mix especially if he has been blipped or not. Either way, Zemo could use the Blip as a tool to serve his plan and cause paranoia once more given that a looming viral threat is rumored to emerge as one of the conflicts of the series.
