Complete Storyline and information about Black Widow
Before Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) became part of the Avengers as Black Widow, the KGB trained her to be a spy and assassin for hire. In the meantime, however, she has gone her own way and left the Red Room Soviet training camp far behind.
But a dark path leads Natasha back to the roots of her past, where she meets people with whom she shares a history: There are reunions for her with other Black Widows, such as young Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), who was once like a sister to her, and the experienced Melinda (Rachel Weisz). But she is also no stranger to Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour), whose best days as the Russian Captain America counterpart Red Guardian are long behind him.
Background & info on Black Widow
Black Widow is set between the events of The First Avenger: Civil War (2016) and Avengers 3: Infinity War (2018) and is the 24th film in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
Lionsgate had already acquired the film rights to the Black Widow comics by Stan Lee, Don Rico and Don Heck in 2004. In 2006, however, they reverted to Marvel unused.
Ten years before the 2010 Black Widow film, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff was finally introduced into the MCU in Iron Man 2. This was followed by further appearances in The Avengers, Captain America 2: The Return of the First Avenger, The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Avengers 3: Infinity War, a Captain Marvel guest appearance, and Avengers 4: Endgame. After eight appearances, Black Widow (only the second Marvel superhero ever) received her own solo film.
Before Florence Pugh was cast as Yelena Belova, Saoirse Ronan, Alice Englert, Dar Zuzovsky and Emma Watson had also been considered for the role. (ES)
