Marvel's upcoming Black Widow solo film gets a new fan-made poster. The character Black Widow first made her comic book debut in Tales of Suspense #52 in 1964, and made her cinematic debut in the 2010 film Iron Man 2. Since then, she's been a main character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and was one of the six original Avengers. She last appeared in Avengers: Infinity War, and was one of the survivors of Thanos' destruction.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe started off with solo outings for the superheroes, before teaming the heroes up for the 2012 film The Avengers. While Black Widow appeared in several of the other heroes' solo adventures, she still hasn't gotten her own movie. With the success of the DC film Wonder Woman and the hype revolving around Captain Marvel, it wasn't a big surprise when Marvel announced they were finally giving Black Widow a solo film. Cate Shortland will be calling the shots as director, with Jac Schaeffer writing the script, and Marvel aiming for a 2020 release date. While no official marketing material has been released just yet, fans of the character have created their own versions of a Black Widow poster.
This latest fan-made Black Widow poster comes from Turkish designer Omer Kose, and was recently shared on Reddit. Kose seems to have taken the still of Scarlett Johansson from her Avengers: Age of Ultron character poster and combined it with a new background, made to look like her iconic logo. The typography of the Black Widow title is also similar to that of Captain America: Civil War.
Like most teaser posters, this fan-made poster doesn't give anything away about what the plot could potentially be, mainly since fans still don't know what Black Widow will be about. There was previously a Black Widow synopsis floating around, but that has since been confirmed to be from an old Black Widow script not connected to the MCU. Other rumors have involved Black Widow featuring the Y2K bug, and even theorized that the film may be a prequel featuring the Winter Soldier.
Regardless of what the story is about, it's about time a Black Widow movie was made. Fans are clearly interested in more female superheroes stepping into the spotlight, and many have been itching to see Natasha Romanoff get her own solo movie. The film is definitely moving forward at this point, and casting for other characters also recently began, which means fans are likely to hear more news about the Black Widow movie soon.
