It’s not much of a Marvel Studios movie without some sort of chase, whether that’s on foot or in a car – or even in the air. But for the upcoming “Black Widow,” starring Scarlett Johansson, fans can expect to see the Avenger with her sister Yelena (Florence Pugh) jump into a car to outrun an assassin. Check out the clip below.
Normally, I refrain from posting these clips as they as just tiny morsels of the film that doesn’t do much to excite. By now, you are going to see this movie, or you are not. And it’s most likely the former, given that it is our first Marvel Studios film that we will see in a year. Heck, even a guy like me who wasn’t remotely interested in this feels a little excited about a new Marvel movie after not seeing a new one in over a year.
But the clip itself is underwhelming. Of course, we don’t need to understand why Natasha and Yelena are being chased, but it’s something that just dives right into the action. Even the ADR sounds a bit off. Still, this is just one small clip and not a representation of the film as a whole. Other aspects from the trailers that leave me intrigued on how Black Widow helps lay out the groundwork for Phase 4 – especially now that we know she dies in the second act of “Avengers: Endgame.”
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Black Widow:”
In Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises.
