The First Teaser Trailer is out for the Black Widow standalone movie from Marvel. It is going to be released in May 2020 and we are really excited about it. The film takes us back in time and introduces us to a number of characters that we have not seen before. Black Widow movie might initially seem confusing because we saw the character die in Avengers: EndGame. But this movie actually takes place in the past and appears to explore her somewhat mysterious backstory. In the timeline for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this movie is set to take place right after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Here is a detail description about Characters & Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Teaser Trailer, who they are, and what we know about them. In addition to an explanation of a few other key Easter eggs.

About Characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Black Widow

Let's briefly start with the main character Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff because obviously, it's her movie. In that movie, Black Widow was forced to go into hiding as she became a wanted criminal when she betrayed Thaddeus Ross and the US government by helping Captain America escape from the German Airport with Bucky Barnes aka the
Winter Soldier. Thaddeus Ross appears briefly at the start of the trailer for Black Widow along with a number of troops. It seems he's trying to hunt down Black Widow. We covered very little about her because every Marvel Fans know about her. So Black Widow is main among all the characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer.


About Characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Yelena Belova

The first person that Black Widow reunites within the teaser trailer is Yelena Belova played by Florence Pugh who she calls her sister. Bulova first appeared in the comics and Inhumans number 5 and there's no record that she is not real sister. It's possible they use that term of endearment because when they were younger they trained together in the Red Room, a place where female spies were groomed to be Soviet agents. It seems from the trailer that the two have a messy history which explains this fight scene and is also backed up by the comics. At a point, Bulova was even sent to kill Natasha. In the comics Bulova as Natasha's successor eventually becoming Black Widow. When Black Widow is killed by Hydra's Captain America look-alike, Bulova reassumed the Black Widow identity and fights for the good guys. Because the Natasha died in EndGame as far as we know, it seems highly likely that Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova will be our new face for Black Widow. So Yelena Belova has some significance among all the characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer.

About Characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Red Guardian

Now let us talk about Red fatty guy. This guy's name is "Red Guardian". Now in the comics, there were several people who wore the mantle of red Guardian but actor David Harbor of "Stranger Things(A Web Series)" Fame is listed as Alexei Shostakov. The second person to assume the mantle of the legendary Soviet fighter. One thing that remains to be seen is if Shostakov often Natasha were ever married. Because for a period in the comics they were together. It's possible because right before they were introduced to the character, we hear the line saying Natasha "It's gonna be a hell of a reunion" and later in the trailer Alexei says "Family, Back together again" which could mean that they were an item at one point in the MCU timeline. We know that he is not Natasha's father because, in EndGame, we learned her father's name is Ivan. Although Ivan is probably a reference to Ivan Petrovich who in the comics is just not adopted father who took her to be trained as a Soviet spy. Black Widow and Red Guardian were both trained as Soviet agents, so it's likely their paths would have first crossed during that time. In the comics, Shostakov was a pilot but was chosen for an experiment when the Soviets realized they should have a rival soldier to Captain America. They went so far as to give him a shield that magnetically returns to him. And looking at his costume in the teaser trailer you can see similarities of his suit with Steve's suit. So Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian also has some significance among all the characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer.

About Characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Melina Vostokoff

We also get a brief glimpse of Melina Vostokoff played by Rachel Weisz. We don't learn much about her from the teaser trailer. Literally, all she says in the teaser trailer is "You got Fat" to Alexei Shostakov. But she is playing a potentially important character "Iron Maiden". We don't see it in the trailer but that character is often wearing a skin like metal exoskeleton which increases her strength. Hopefully, we'll get to see her like this in the movie. Like Belova and Natasha, she also was trained in the Red Room but was always out shown by Natasha which created hatred between the two characters. Like Yelena Belova, Melina Vostokoff was also sent to kill Natasha. Iron Maiden is a character with an interesting history in the comics, having been part of a group called the Femizons and lieutenant for Superia (A notable Marvel villain). So Melina Vostokoff also has some significance among all the characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer.


About Characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Taskmaster

Who is the guy with the bow and arrow wearing a skull-like mask in the trailer? Well, that's taskmaster a villain who has photographic reflexes and is able to instantly replicate the physical movement of his enemies. Gaining deadly archery abilities from Hawkeye. Once if the taskmaster has mastered an opponent's physical movements, he can then predict his opponent's next attack. Taskmaster first appeared in the comics "The Avengers" number 196 published in May 1980. His real name is Tony Masters and he was born with photographic reflexes which allowed him to effort replicate the movements of top athletes after seeing them on television. And during one mission he injected himself with a syringe containing an experimental Nazi version of the Super Soldier serum. Yes, that serum which transformed Steve Rogers into Captain America. The syringe enhanced his reflexes and allowed him to instantaneously mimic the fighting style and movements of his opponents. However, a side-effect of the serum was severe memory loss causing him to forget that he was ever in SHIELD. In the comics, he is capable of holding his own against Captain America, spider-man, and more. So it makes sense that he appears to be fairly evenly matched with Red Guardian in the trailer. At the end of the trailer, it appears that his henchmen are chasing after Black Widow as the skydiving soldiers have masks that resemble Taskmaster's mask. So Taskmaster also has some significance among all the characters in Marvel Black Widow Trailer


On top of all the characters, there are also some Easter eggs in the teaser. So let us talk about them.

Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Trailer-1:

Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Budapest

The opening shot of the trailer shows Budapest. Black Widow has mentioned Budapest several times in Marvel(MCU) movies, referencing a mission that happened in the city with Hawkeye several times throughout the Infinity Saga. The first time it's mentioned is in Avengers during the Battle of New York. Next time we hear about Budapest is in Captain America Winter Soldier when Alexander Pierce warned Romanoff that all her dark secrets including Budapest would come out if she exposed Hydra and shield. The final time that we hear about Budapest is during Avengers: EndGame. So it appears that something important happened to Black Widow while she was in Budapest with Hawkeye. However, all of the previously referenced events happened before the Black Widow movie occurs in the MCU timeline. Maybe we'll learn about Natasha's history with Budapest in the movie.

Another reference to the MCU is the opening line of the trailer Natasha says "I used to have nothing family, then I got this Job, this Family". This is a line from Avengers: EndGame from a conversation she had with Steve Rogers after five years had passed since Thanos did the first snap.

Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Trailer- Red Room

Throughout this post we have is referenced the Red Room a couple times. We even get a small glimpse of this infamous location in the teaser but it's not the first time we have heard of it in the MCU. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Red Room was already mentioned where Natasha says to Bruce Banner- "In the Red Room where I was trained, where I was raised, they have a graduation ceremony, they sterilize you.

Next, we see a shot of walking, which is from the first Avengers movie when she brings Captain America inside shield's airship(Helicarrier) for the very first time. 

Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Trailer-7:

Easter Eggs in Marvel Black Widow Trailer-3

One final Easter egg is that it appears the vest that Yelena is wearing in the trailer is the same vest that we see Natasha wearing in Avengers: Infinity War. This seems like an apocalyptic sign for Yelena but we'll have to wait until the movie is released to find out for sure.
