This is it folks! This week, we’ll all finally get to see Black Widow! And in anticipation of the release of the film, Marvel Studios has released a new featurette for the film, featuring Kevin Feige and Scarlett Johansson talking about the film’s connections to the larger MCU.
I gotta be honest as someone who has seen the film along with our amazing editor Laura Sirikul (whose review you can find here), this is an awesome movie, but I have to admit I disagree with the assessments given in the above featurette. While it’s a really fun, well crafted, fantastic movie with the best action we’ve seen in the MCU since Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it is essentially a stand-alone one, and tells a story that isn’t trying to set up that much about the MCU’s future (just my opinion).
However, given that I don’t want to give anything away, I’ll just say, you’ll see what I mean when you see it. But it’s debatable about whether or not everything they’re saying in the featurette is true.
That being said, as this is a larger universe, expect some setup. That’s all I’ll say. Let us know what you think when you all see it!
Black Widow FINALLY hits theaters and Disney+ with Premier Access, this Friday, July 9!
