Did Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow Cameo in the New Loki Disney+ Trailer?

Black Widow and Loki

At Disney's Investor Day, we finally got our a deep look at Disney+'s upcoming Loki series. 

This trailer was our first glimpse of what 2012's God of Mischief is up to after he disappears with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. The footage heavily emphasizes that the mysterious Time Variance Authority will to be a pivotal part to the show's story. It's unclear how Loki will use the Tesseract in this solo series, but he clearly does something with it to trigger the TVA to get involved.

There is mass destruction throughout the trailer, notably in one specific shot that looks like to be New York City and the Avengers tower in ruins. The clip of Loki using the Bifrost also indicates we may get a cameo appearance from his brother Thor, or the master of the Asgardian transportation system, Heimdall.

While cameos from Asgardians are likely, it is entirely possible that a certain Earth-bound Avenger might have popped up Loki's debut trailer.


There's much more speculation to be had about the first footage from Loki, but fans are already noticing a possible Easter egg from the trailer...

At 2:02 in the official first Exclusive Clip of the upcoming Loki series, a woman is seen sitting in a dark, rocky area.

Based on her short hair and black suit, this mystery woman looks notably similar to Black Widow from Avengers: Infinity War. 

Here's the full first look:

However, upon closer inspection from fans, it this woman appears to actually be Sophia Di Martino's character, who will seemingly be portraying either an alternate female version of Loki himself or the iconic Marvel villain Enchantress.

The full trailer can be watched below:



Loki is bound to explore different timelines and realities, some possibly where a female Loki exits. This opens up endless opportunities for the characters that we could see surrounding Loki.

This sounds like something that would be more likely to happen in an episode of What If...?but with the multiverse confirmed to factor into both Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessMarvel Studios clearly is not afraid to use alternate realities and characters to tell their stories during Phase 4 and beyond.

Loki is set to stream on Disney+ in May 2021.
