'Black Widow' on top three movies-to-watch list when theatres reopen, fans say 'time to bow to the queen'
Wonder Woman 2, Tenet and Dune were some of the other films on fans' list
'Black Widow' may have a November release, but that hasn't stopped fans from picking the first film of MCU's Phase 4 in their list of top three films to watch in theatres this year. While this was the main reason why 'Black Widow' trended heavily on Twitter, fans also delved into certain aspects of the film that just garnered more attention by the minute. The other movies fans added in their list was 'Wonder Woman' and 'Tenet'.
"Black Widow, Wonder Woman 2 and Tenet, Hands down!" tweeted a fan. "Black Widow, Wonder Woman, and Candyman. I can’t stress how excited I am for Candyman when it comes out. A classic redone by one of the best directors out right now? I’m in 100%." wrote another. "Because she’s amazing. go watch black widow on November 8th," wrote one of the fans. Even 'Dune' and 'No Time to Die' made it to the list of a few fans. "Black widow, tenet, and a toss-up between dune and no time to die," opined another.
"Back in March I was very much, “hold tight good brothers and sisters, let’s wait for the theatrical experience. Our time will come.” Now I’m about a month away from 'Just drop Black Widow on Disney+, and Nolan forgive me for watching Tenet on my iPhone," read a fan tweet. Some fans were just happy 'Black Widow' was trending. "Black Widow is trending so let’s take a moment to appreciate our Queen," a fan said.
"2020 happened because it knew we would not be able to handle this queen's energy that early in the year so it's making us wait. I mean just look at these shots! Bow down to your queen Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow!" remarked a fan. "I’m just savoring the fact that Black Widow finally has her own movie," read one of the tweets. "Black widow trending right now just shows the true love we all have for what’s coming, and how much it means to so many of us. I love you nat," wrote a fan.
Earlier this year, Scarlett Johansson, in an interview with EW, shed light on the character that has been nothing but complex. She also answered the most popular question surrounding the film: Why did it take so long to be made? "For anyone who said to me, ‘Oh, this [Black Widow film] should’ve happened five or 10 years ago,’ I’m like, it would not have been as substantial. We just would not have been able to do it. This film is happening now as a result of what’s going on in the zeitgeist, and I think it’s pretty cool."
The movie will mark the first MCU installment directed solely by a woman — Cate Shortland. The Australian director is known for 'Berlin Syndrome' (2017), 'Lore' (2012), and 'Somersault' (2004). The first MCU Phase 4 flick also stars Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh and David Harbour alongside Johansson.
'Black Widow' releases on November 6, 2020.
