After the death of Natasha Romanova, the producer decided to close the story of the Black Widow with a solo film where she focused on the character’s past. We will see his transformation into an agent of the KGB and his possible betrayal of the same organization.
There are several important characters that we will see in the film as Melina Vostokoff, one of the agents who ends up transforming into Iron Maden. Possibly, we will see it in the other productions of the UCM.
We will also learn more about Red Guardian, a version of Captain America but from Russia. The new character is somewhat out of shape but the suit still fits him and maintains impressive strength.
Finally, “Black Widow” will tell us about the relationship between Melina Vostokoff and Natasha Romanova. Both share a scene in the latest trailer where they are seen as children. The second holds a gun while Melina hides from fear.
“Black Widow”: first reviews and criticisms of the MCU movie
“Black Widow” was expected to be one of the first phase 4 productions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; However, the production company had to move the release dates after the cinemas closed after the COVID-19 outbreak.
On July 9, this film will be released in theaters and through Disney Plus, within the premium program. Recall that other Disney films, such as Mulan, used this form of release due to the coronavirus.
A little over a week after the premiere, critics have already shared their first opinions. These are some of the most prominent criticisms of the specialized media.
“The movie will be the ideal return to the cinema for any viewer, even those who are casual fans of the MCU. While it’s hard not to dwell on the fact that Black Widow should have been made a decade ago, the new movie still manages to be a well-placed addition to the franchise and the perfect send-off for Scarlett Johansson and Natasha Romanoff, ”Brandon details. Davis for the middle Comicbook.com.
“… Audiences entering ‘Black Widow’ may still wonder what exactly they are going to see the main character do. In Scarlett Johansson’s appearances in the MCU thus far, going back to “Iron Man 2,” she has been an incredible fighter in sleek leather with some signature razor moves. I was wondering, or maybe fearing, that “Black Widow” was going to be two hours away. It’s not; it’s much more interesting and absorbing, ”Variety explains that it’s more than you think it really is.
“Bad accents abound and no amount of fun can save the third act cliché of a giant flaming object falling from the sky, but overall,” Black Widow “amounts to a satisfying addition to the” The Bourne Identity “franchise. Of course, it’s actually a solid start to the latest cycle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the appeal of the MCU has always come from the way it plays with existing formulas with amounts of arranged action scattered throughout, and the Entry number 24 arrives. all those rhythms with style to spare ”, another action film and secret agents according to Indiewire.
“The movie is, in a word, ambitious. It’s a superhero movie, but also a spy action thriller, a dysfunctional family drama, a farewell, and most of all, a movie about recovering from abuse. Much of it doesn’t feel like a Marvel movie at all, thanks to the darker tone used to tell the story of a Russian show that kidnaps young girls and trains them to become killers. There is no catalyst event that gave Natasha superpowers, not a radioactive spider bite or a gamma bomb. And Natasha has already defected to SHIELD, though viewers will be clear on why she joined in the first place. The film focuses on stating why he continues on the path of heroism, beyond escaping the confines of his past life. Though resolved on a hopeful note, it leaves an aftertaste of intense tragedy in one of Marvel’s original Avengers. ” IGN highlights how ambitious this project is.
