Watch: Leaked Black Widow Footage Teases Natasha’s MCU Adventure


Black Widow might be the deadliest spy in the world, but she’s also the most delayed. Natasha Romanoff’s solo adventure was originally due in May 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic saw its release date repeatedly pushed back further and further. Now, finally, it’s coming to theaters and Disney Plus next month, and it’ll be the first MCU movie we’ve gotten since Spider-Man: Far From Home.

That long delay means it’s been almost two years since we first saw footage at Disney’s 2019 D23 Expo, but after a lot of promos, it seems Disney’s marketing team can still find the occasional new moment to surprise us. Right now, there’s a fresh Black Widow featurette playing in theaters in which Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and David Harbor answer questions and debate who’s the more effective spy, and it includes some never-before-seen clips.

Twitter user @natsbatons surreptitiously recorded it and shared a bit of footage for all of us to enjoy, which you can see below:

Once Black Widow is out of the gates, prepare for an onslaught of MCU movies. The rest of 2021 will see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home hitting theaters, while 2022 will have another four titles: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Marvels.

With all that (not to mention the various Disney+ shows), it’s tempting to worry that audiences will become tired of the constant conveyer belt of Marvel content. Then again, all of these projects look promising and there are no signs of superhero fatigue at the box office.

So, roll on Black Widow, as I’m positively itching to settle down in a multiplex for some MCU action. It’s certainly going to feel good to see that Marvel Studios logo on the big screen after so long away.
