Marvel’s “Black Widow” Teaser Trailer – Three New Suits
Earlier this week, MickeyBlog.com posted the first trailer, a teaser, for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow.
Have another look:
Rachel Paige of the Marvel mothership broke down the trailer in a piece entitled: 10 Major Takeaways From the ‘Black Widow’ Trailer – [Marvel] Phase Four kicks off in theaters May 1, 2020!
I want you to take a look at the entire — fact-packed — article on Marvel.com, so I am going to try on only three of those takeaways.
The new black tactical suit
In a quick blink-and-miss-it moment, we see Natasha in a brand new black suit, that appears to be way more tactical than what we’re used to seeing her in. It’s got way more armor, per se, along with a backpack strapped to her.
The white suit
Over the years we’ve seen Nat suit up in a variety of different dark, black outfits. Well, that’s all about to change as for parts of the trailer Natasha can be seen wearing an all-white suit. We might not have seen this before in the MCU yet, but Black Widow’s white suit first appeared in 2010’s BLACK WIDOW: DEADLY ORIGIN.
Congrats to Alexei, because he’s got his Red Guardian suit back!
If you were at this year’s D23 Expo, you saw a snippet of a scene where Alexei has to fight his way out of prison. Clearly, he gets out. But then he finds himself in a family reunion with Natasha, Yelena, and Melina. For the first time in a while, he tries on his Red Guardian suit and helmet, and guess what? It still fits!
As for who the character is in the comics, to put it gently, he’s “Russia’s response to Captain America”, but without any super-soldier serum. However, Alexei is still powerful at hand-to-hand combat.
Honestly, I wasn’t all that up on this movie prior to this trailer. Don’t get me wrong, I love the character, but I figured her story was, well, over (for obvious reasons).
This article, the trailer, and my (now clear) understanding that I don’t understand anything about Black Widow has me rethinking my putting Natasha on the shelf. Now I’m looking forward to May.
