Marvel used the occasion of the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards to spotlight some of its biggest upcoming projects.
Among other things, the studio unveiled an action-packed teaser trailer for Black Widow. The trailer shows Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff and Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova in an intense chase.
They’re racing through traffic and bumping into cars as they try to evade a woman on a bike. Ending at nearly a minute, the clip is sure to get your adrenaline rushing.
The teaser came on the heels of the stunning character posters Marvel Studios dropped last week.
Not just Black Widow, Marvel also released a new trailer for its upcoming series, Loki, at the award show. The short clip shows Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief in custody at the Time Variance Authority (TVA). He’s accompanied by Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius, who assures Loki he’s taking him somewhere safe to “talk”. “I don’t like to talk,” the Asgardian prince says to this, which is a clear lie, as fans can tell.
The teaser sure involves a lot of “talkey-talkey”, but is making us all the more excited for what the series will offer. Marvel also released both the clips on its official Instagram account.
Black Widow, Loki and more are part of Marvel Phase 4
Black Widow is the first solo film of Johansson’s character. Set after Captain America: Civil War, it will follow Natasha as she is haunted by some secrets of her past. Fans had been asking for a Black Widow movie for years and Marvel was all set to release it in May last year. However, the pandemic delayed plans. Besides Johansson and Pugh, the film also stars William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross, David Harbour as Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff.
As for Loki, the series is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. It will follow the titular character as he comes out of his brother Thor’s shadow and embarks on an adventure by himself. The Marvel original series also features Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.
Meanwhile, Black Widow will release exactly a month after Loki, in both theaters and on streaming.
