This is the first entry in that specific character’s franchise and it’ll be a big change coming from the team-ups. The film will star Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widows), David Harbour (Alexei aka The Red Guardian).Florence Pugh (Yelena), O-T Fagbenle (Mason) and Rachel Weisz (Melina). The movie will be directed by Cate Shortland.

This is the first entry in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It will bring in Taskmaster, and will feature some elements of flashbacks. You’ll get a glimpse of the character after Captain America: Civil War, feeling fresh after she betrayed Tony Stark. She’s aiming to wipe her ledger. It will fully explore her past as a character and how she picks up the pieces to become whole.
