This movie is their first of 2020 and officially kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Far From Home being considered the book-end to Phase 3 rather than Avengers: Endgame.
Set in the year between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, it will also feature flashbacks to her training with the KGB before her defection to SHIELD.
Scarlett Johansson will make a return to the role she owns.
Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, Ray Winstone, and O.T. Fagbenle round out the cast. Cate Shortland will direct and the script is by Jac Schaeffer. Kevin Feige, inevitably, is producing.
Black Widow opens in cinemas May 1st next year.
