Black Widow has been a long time coming. On top of the fact that Scarlett Johansson's solo film should have been created a long time ago, the film has also been the victim of delay after delay—all thanks to you-know-what.

Thankfully, after so long, the film is finally set for release in just under a month, on July 9. Sadly, it will not be getting the classic theater-only release. However, there's truly no one to blame for that, just simply the fact that theaters haven't quite healed up. Though, maybe it's time to accept that hybrid film releases are potentially a better option

All of that aside, it's almost time for fans to witness Natasha Romanoff's origin story, and her untold events before Avengers: Infinity War. For those still pinching themselves in disbelief that the moment is actually weeks away, rest assured—real tickets are on sale for showtimes in theaters across the world. 

Out of celebration of the film's impending release, Marvel has a special treat for fans.


In anticipation of its upcoming July 9 release, Marvel has revealed a brand-new poster inspired by the Scarlett Johansson-led film. The art is by Adam Stothard and showcases what seems to be the main face-off between Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and the film's villain, Taskmaster. The poster can be seen below:

The hype for Black Widow is once again picking up steam. With the film so close to release, it's almost hard to believe that fans will actually be getting to see the film. It seemed like a pipe dream as of last year.

Thankfully, it really is arriving. In fact, critics have already been able to see the film. According to their reactions, while the film doesn't seem to reach the highest tiers of the MCU, fans should still be in for a major treat—one that apparently does some great stuff for Natasha Romanoff's character.

For those overwhelmed with excitement about the first Phase 4 film, rest assured there will be plenty to see leading up to its release. This includes several more posters, as this piece of art by Adam Stothard seems to only be the first of at least a few that Marvel plans to show off.
