The Direct Podcast: Black Widow Review

Black Widow, Florence Pugh, Scarlett Johansson, The Direct Podcast
By Liam Crowley




It's here! It's actually here!

The 737-day theatrical drought for the Marvel Cinematic Universe has reached its end with Black Widow finally htting theaters (and Disney+ Premier Access). With nearly two years of marketing and anticipation, did Natasha Romanoff's solo flick live up to the hype?

We break down all elements from the Scarlett Johansson-led spy thriller. How does the latest MCU prequel factor into the greater universe? What is its impact on the franchise going forward? Will any of these characters pop up again in Phase 4?

Aside from the storyline implications, we review the movie in full. What worked? What could've been better? Does it live up to the MCU's gold standard?

Thanks for rocking with us. Keep those iTunes reviews coming so we can bring you more bonus episodes like this!
