Marvel Studios used the 2020 Super Bowl to unveil a 30-second look at Black Widow, the Scarlett Johansson-starrer standalone movie for the titular spy. It features precious little new footage, instead revolving around a new line of dialogue from Natasha Romanoff (Johansson): “You don’t know everything about me. The Avengers weren’t my first family.” That ‘first family’ — introduced twice previously — includes father-figure Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour) aka Red Guardian, her sister-figure Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz), both of whom were also trained as Black Widows alongside Natasha.

In terms of new shots, the new Black Widow teaser trailer features a screaming Alexei, the “family” reconnecting in the aftermath of a battle, and Natasha taking on the film’s villain, Taskmaster, whose identity is still unclear since he’s only seen with a full-face mask and a shield. In addition to the family theme that Black Widow is clearly stressing on — a bit strange considering the Avengers have been played as her only family for a decade — the new Marvel movie is also about Natasha confronting her past, which leads into the only other line of dialogue in the trailer: “At some point, we all have to choose between what the world wants you to be and who you are.”
