Marvel is pulling out all of the stops to remind fans that the long-overdue Black Widow solo movie is just two weeks away from release and to compel them to return to movie theaters to experience the MCU the way it was meant to be seen: on the big screen. Marvel has released two new extended clips containing all-new footage and a behind-the-scenes video.
In “Control” and “Fight,” we get to see more of the villainous Taskmaster, with a brief explanation of his powers, and confirmation that he has taken over the Red Room assassin program that originally trained Natasha (Scarlett Johansson) and now “controls a whole army of Widows.”
And, in the “A Spy on the Inside” video, Rachel Weisz , who plays Red Room “matron” Melina Vostokoff, answers questions about the production, with BTS photos from the set.
We also get a stylized version of Black Widow’s “hero landing” from the trailer in poster form.
Natasha: I'm not a poser
