The first official trailer for Marvel’s long-awaited Black Widow solo film has been released.

Ten years later (yes, it’s really been that long) Marvel has finally granted that wish.Continue reading Black Widow trailer drops some hints about her past
A little later than expected, but Seth and Train are back to talk the Marvel Phase Four announcements from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
We speculated in our last episode on what Marvel might be doing for Phase Four of the Cinematic Universe. After a bunch of reveals at San Diego Comic-Con, we now have the full lineup for the next two years.
It is worth noting that only films slated for 2020 and 2021 were announced. There were no definite indications of theatrical releases for 2022. The possibilities of Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and Avengers 5 are still very strong.
For each of the announced movies or series, we’ll give our main speculation points and pair them up with what was confirmed during the Hall H presentation.
Confirmed: Pugh will be Yelena Belova, David Harbour will be Alexi Shostakov aka Red Guardian, the Russian equivalent of Captain America.
New Speculation: Yelena Belova may be Taskmaster instead of Crimson Widow
Confirmed: Several roles were announced, none of which were Thanos or Warlock. It will take place on Earth, and Kevin Feige described it as “full-on Jack Kirby“.
- Angelina Jolie as Thena
- Richard Madden as Ikaris
- Kumail Nanjani as Kingo
- Salma Hayek as Ajak
- Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos
- Dong-Seok Ma as Gilgamesh
- Lia McHugh as Sprite
- Lauren Ridloff as Makkari
New Speculation: Nobody will care that Ajak and Makkari have been gender-swapped.
Confirmed: Mandarin is the villain
Further Speculation: Since the Ten Rings were teased way back in the first Iron Man, this may take place over a period of time. There could be an explanation as to why Ben Kingsley played an imposter Mandarin.
Speculation: The show will be standalone and not directly tied to the rest of the MCU, and Baron Zemo will be the villain
Confirmed: Will not be standalone, and will be part of Phase Four. Baron Zemo is the villain and will have the mask.
Speculation: Will take place before Vision’s death in Infinity War.
Confirmed: Takes place in current time, so maybe Captain America was able to revive Vision in his post-Endgame quest. Monica Rambeau is in the show, perhaps to become a new Captain Marvel or Miss Marvel.
Speculation: Possible origin story or another story from the past. Loki’s escape during Endgame could play a factor.
Confirmed: Takes place after Loki’s escape in Avengers: Endgame. This will be the classic evil Loki and not the sympathetic character he became in Phase Three.
Speculation: Dr. Strange will be one of the focal points of the MCU on par with how Iron Man was for the first three phases.
Confirmed: Scarlet Witch will be in the film, so it may tie in with the WandaVision series.
Speculation: Could be directly related to Guardians of the Galaxy 3 given the styles of directors James Gunn and Taiki Watiti. Plus Thor left with the Guardians to close out Endgame.
Current Speculation: Thor himself will be a supporting role, and it could still tie into Guardians 3
1:01:05 – Hawkeye (Fall 2021)
Speculation: Clint is back to adventuring now that his family is safe. We may see Kate Bishop.
Confirmed: Kate Bishop will be major part of the show
1:13:00 – X-Men and Deadpool (Phase Five?)
Marvel did not outright say any immediate future of the X-Men franchise, including Deadpool. But it seems like X-Men may wait a few years and get rebranded for Phase Five.
Since her first appearance for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Iron Man 2, Black Widow has been rumored to get her own movie. Well, nearly 10 years later, that movie now has a major component added to becoming a reality.
The Hollywood Reporter has published that Australia’s Cate Shoreland has nabbed the coveted directing duties for the film. The yet unnamed spin-off will take place before the events of previous MCU movies, and will presumably tell the story of Natasha Romanov’s journey from Russian spy to Avenger.
No release date is announced yet, and no other actors have been revealed other than Scarlett Johansson.
