'Black Widow' new trailer: Johansson's latest reminds fans of Captain America, given the Taskmaster shield scene
The new trailer shared some glimpses from the mysterious 'Red Room', where Natasha Romanoff was trained along with several others to become a deadly spy
It's been a good time for Scarlett Johansson, who began her day with two Academy Award nominations and ended it with a new stellar trailer for her film 'Black Widow'. The new trailer shared some glimpses from the mysterious 'Red Room', where Natasha Romanoff was trained along with several others to become a deadly spy.
In the clips, Natasha fiercely proclaims that she 'won't be running from her past' anymore.
Yet, what caught fans' attention was the epic shield scene with the Taskmaster. The fans couldn't help but be reminded of Steve Rogers AKA Captain America (Chris Evans), who retired and decided to live out his life with Peggy Carter, as seen in 'Avengers Endgame'. There was some speculation on whether the Taskmaster could be Steve.
One fan tweeted a hypothetical dialogue, "Taskmaster with shield & Capt America's skills Natasha: Steve? Taskmaster: Who's Steve?"
Another wrote, "Taskmaster: *throws shield* Natasha: Steve? Taskmaster: who the hell is Steve?"
A fan tweeted, "I appreciate the character design of Taskmaster. It's not perfect, but good enough. And no, it's not Steve, as far as I know. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure."
"Taskmaster?? Shıeld???? Steve???" a fan tweeted.
One fan wanted the film to solely belong to Natasha and said, "Can you not bring Steve in the conversation, he has nothing to do with this movie, it's Natasha's story and hers only."
Meanwhile, fans can't stop raving about the new trailer. Many can be seen exclaiming on social media. They go, "Can't wait for Taskmaster and BW to go toe to toe. This looks like a cool fight. Omg," tweeted a fan.
"HIS IS SO GOOD YASSS! YELENA AND NATASHA ROMANOFF ARE SO DAMN POWERFUL WE ARE NOT READY. In this house we only stan strong women only," another fan tweeted.
A fan noted the timing of the new trailer, as both the actresses Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh are up against each other in the Supporting Actress category for the Academy Awards. "The timing of debuting new #BlackWidow footage couldn’t be more perfect: stars Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh are now Oscar nominees - and they’re facing off in the Supporting Actress category."
'Black Widow' is scheduled to hit the screens on May 1.
