Marvel dropped Black Widow teaser trailer on Tuesday. Scarlett Johansson reprises her titular role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The teaser trailer gives a gist of the film, which is set to be showing part of Natasha Romanoff’s past and more. The trailer not only shows Natasha but has also introduced a few new characters. Read to know about them.
As the trailer moves a bit, we get a glimpse of a young General Ross, who is said to be De-aged by CGI. With that, the scene seems like it is from her past life, before becoming an Avenger. Ross appeared in a number of Marvel films such as The Incredible Hulk and Captain America: Civil War.
The first new face that was seen in the trailer was Yelena Belova also known as Black Widow. Yes, she has the same name as Natasha. This is because she is a product of the same training program that Natasha went through with the KGB. Yelena is actually her successor to the Black Widow mantle. Natasha calls her 'sis', but she is not her actual sister. It is said to be a term that the Black Widow trainees used to refer to each other. Florence Pugh plays it.
A man appears with a Bow and Arrow, not Hawkeye, chasing a car. The masked man is Tony Masters, well known as the Taskmaster. He is said to be the primary villain of the movie. As per the comics, Taskmaster is a legendary mercenary with genius intellect, mastery of combat arts and many more skills.
The character that is seen just after Taskmaster’s appearance is said to be Melina, another Black Widow agent, played by Rachel Weisz. In the comics, Melina Vostokoff was an agent of the Russian government and rival of Natasha. However, the movie is said to be one of the spies trained in the Red Room with others, which includes Yelena and Natasha.
