Marvel fans have been on the lookout for any plot details they can get from the mysterious Black Widow production, helmed by director Cate Shortland. David Harbour has been attempting to oblige fans, releasing spoiler-y content on his Instagram page last month.Marvel fans also have been reading into comments from O-T Fagbenle in recent interviews, trying to learn if his character is in fact the alter-ego of the villainous Taskmaster. Fagbenle has teased a potential romantic connection between his character and Romanoff — potentially the first such relationship for Black Widow since her love story with Hulk alter-ego Bruce Banner was left unrequited in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
Inferno doesn’t appear to share any direct ties to the 1989 crossover of the same name. Instead, this series will build on perhaps the biggest loose end from Hickman’s work so far. Mystique is determined to see her wife Destiny resurrected alongside the rest of the mutant race. And with Professor Xavier flatly refusing that request, Mystique is ready to burn the nation of Krakoa to the ground to get what she wants.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe super-spy actioner’s release was famously pushed back due to COVID several times, before moving to its current release date of July 9, 2021 — both in theaters and on Disney+ (with a Premiere Access fee of $29.99). The Black Widow movie will be the first feature film release from Marvel Studios since Spider-Man: Far From Home — starring Tom Holland — premiered in July of 2019.
Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson in a return to the role of original Avenger, Natasha Romanoff for the first time since trading her life for the Soul Stone in Avengers: Endgame (2019). The film also stars Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/ Red Guardian, O-T Fagbenle as Agent Mason. And of course, Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff.
