Set in the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War but before the events of Avengers: Infinity War/Endgame, Black Widow will see Scarlett Johansson playing Natasha Romanoff for – presumably – the last time, following her demise on Vormir

The film will also set up Florence Pugh’s Yelena for future adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Black Widow was originally scheduled for release in May 2020, but has since been delayed a number of times due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It will now launch simultaneously in cinemas and on Disney+ with Premier Access on 9 July, 2021.
