Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), ‘Black Widow’, an American superhero film sees Romanoff on the run and forced to confront her past.
Black Widow is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The film is directed by Cate Shortland from a screenplay by Eric Pearson and a story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the twenty-fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The first Marvel property to kick off its Phase 4 will be this prequel focusing on Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, alongside Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz.
At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative.
