After a long wait, the new movie from Marvel has already arrived for the public! The film focused on the character's story Black Widow made its debut simultaneously in theaters and in the Disney + at the Premier Access on July 9th, when fans finally got to know more about the avenger's past, little explored in the MCU so far.
In the movie, first of phase four of Marvel Cinematic Universe, a dangerous conspiracy linked to the past of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) will make the heroine face a darker side of her story. Pursued by a relentless force bent on defeating her, she will have to deal with her old life as a spy and people from her past that she left behind before becoming part of the Avengers.
Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, Black Widow has a strong cast alongside Johansson: Florence Pugh, as Yelena Belova; David Harbor, in the role of Red Guardian/Alexei; and Rachel Weisz, who interprets Melina Vostokoff.
And for those who have already checked out the feature or will still be, nothing better than traveling to the past to recall some of the highlights of the character's journey throughout the MCU films and also some important characteristics of her personality. Even more so if you got lost at some point after watching the Black Widow. Does not contain SPOILERS.
1. Dark past
Precisely because so little is known about the past of Black Widow is that fans are eagerly awaiting to learn more about her story. As a child, Natasha was recruited by the KGB, the secret service of the former Soviet Union, which turned her into a great fighter and one of its main spies. The new feature explores that past, covering his training journey with the Russians before switching sides and working for the SHIELD. In addition, it also introduces her former "family" of spies and how she got separated from them.
