After multiple delays, Natasha Romanoff's solo adventure, Black Widow, will finally release on streaming and in theaters on July 9. This heralds a long-awaited return to the cinema for MCU fans who haven't witnessed a Marvel movie on the big screen since Tom Holland's Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019. 

The press tour for Black Widow has well and truly kicked off in anticipation of the film's release next month. Actors including Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbour are doing the media circuit and have dropped plenty of exciting teases and even some new clips from their upcoming Marvel film. 

Many of the Black Widow trailers released to date have showcased its action-heavy scenes. However, these new promos show that the family dynamic between Natasha and her Russian family will bring some humor to the table

A new 30-second promo for Black Widow has surfaced, featuring a new scene in which one very prominent superhero team is referenced. 

The Avengers joke appears right at the end of the teaser when David Harbour's Red Guardian teases Natasha by saying "You should've brought the Avengers." Yelena then punches Alexei in the face for his remarks, and he responds with "good punch, honey."

It appears one of the major themes in Black Widow will be digging into Natasha's family. However, having been an assassin, spy, and avenger, the character has called plenty of groups her family during her time in the MCU. 

The family fans will be seeing more of in Black Widow is the quartet of Natasha, Yelena, Alexei, and Melina who are reunited in this movie after many years apart. This group of characters seem to have had a huge impact on Natasha's life and, if the clips released of the group so far are anything to go by, it looks as though her sense of humor runs in the family.

Along with this latest joke from Alexei, another recently released clip showed Yelena calling out Natasha for becoming a "total poser." So, it seems her Russian companions may have some opinions about Natasha's time with her other family, the Avengers.
