Marvel releases more Black Widow footage in special look

It includes David Harbour with a very David Harbour one-liner.


Taskmaster is the big bad in Black Widow.

Marvel is ramping up its Black Widow promotion, releasing on Monday what it calls a "special look" to follow last year's teaser trailer. Instead of focusing on the antagonism between Florence Pugh and Scarlett Johansson, the 90-second look offers more glimpses of Taskmaster, an intentionally mysterious role who's actor hasn't been announced yet.

More importantly, the footage gives David Harbour's Red Guardian a chance to defend himself when Rachel Weisz's Melina says, "You got fat."

"It's mainly water weight," he replies.

Maybe more crucially, Black Widow says: "There's a new world of Widows." She speaks over a shot of dozens of suited-up women who look like they could be Marvel's answer to the Amazons of Wonder Woman's homeland, Themyscira.

Black Widow will delve into Natasha Romanoff's spy origins and will take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War. It stars Pugh as Natasha's sister figure, Yelena Belova, who's also credited as Black Widow; Weisz as Melina Vostokoff, another who's credited as Black Widow; and Harbour as Red Guardian, aka Russia's version of Captain America. Plus, Robert Downey Jr. is rumored to make a cameo as Iron Man.

Black Widow will crawl into cinemas April 30 in Australia and May 1 in the US and the UK.
