Black Widow Final Trailer Review: 6 Ups & 1 Down

Is it May yet?

Black Widow
Marvel Studios

Black Widow is, without question, one of the most anticipated movies of the year. In fact, for many of us, it's one of the most anticipated movies of the past decade, simply because we have spent so long waiting for Marvel Studios to give Scarlett Johannson's unbelievably badass Avenger her own standalone film. And now, after all this time, it's finally within reach.

Yes, the Natasha Romanoff-centric MCU prequel takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, documenting what the highly-skilled assassin got up to in her time away and how that ties directly into her long-teased and mysterious past.

With the film's May 1 release on the horizon, Marvel has unveiled the third and final trailer online and there's certainly a lot to digest.

This one delves into the actual plot more than the previous trailers did and gives us more of an insight into the villain of the piece - Taskmaster - as well as a somewhat unexpected familial dynamic.

Let's get right into that digesting. But before we do, see the brand new trailer for yourself:

First, the positives...
