When will the Black Widow trailer release? Filming for Natasha Romanoff's solo movie is currently underway with Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as the titular character. The Marvel Cinematic Universe movie will hit theaters in 2020.
The Black Widow movie will mark the first MCU installment to be solely directed by a woman, with Cate Shortland at the helm. Interest in developing a Black Widow film has lasted for well over a decade, and development started to noticeably move over the last year as cast and crew announcements began. With filming rumored to last until November, when can fans expect the Black Widow trailer to arrive?
Black Widow is set to release on May 1, 2020, making it the first film in Phase 4 of the MCU. Based on previous timelines used by Marvel, the Black Widow trailer should be expected in late November or early December. Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame all had May release dates and trailers in that window.
Marvel has only released certain plot details for Black Widow. Following Natasha's death in Avengers: Endgame, the film will be a prequel set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, exploring the time when she was on the run following the Sokovia Accords. The movie will likely also shed some light on Natasha before she joined as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Audiences have followed her journey as an admirable member of the Avengers, but little has been revealed about her past. She's previously hinted at some of the red on her ledger - we even saw a glimpse in Avengers: Age of Ultron's visions - and that will hopefully be properly explained in the Black Widow movie. A quick name-drop from Red Skull during a scene in Endgame has also led speculation that the Black Widow movie will introduce Natasha's father, Ivan; even Natasha doesn't know much about her father, or at least has forgotten.
Aside from that speculation, there have been a number of cast announcements: Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Red Guardian, and Rachel Weiz in an unknown role. Marvel will most likely start to ramp up marketing at D23 following the official announcement at SDCC 2019. When it does, that's an indication that the Black Widow trailer is not far behind.
