Natasha Romanoff has been part of the MCU since the beginning — or since Iron Man 2, at least — and 23 films in, she is finally fronting a movie of her own. Considering she died in Endgame, it’s not exactly surprising that Black Widow is a prequel, of sorts: It takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War but before Infinity War and will explore the “darker parts of [Natasha’s] ledger.”

Black Widow will also introduce comic characters such as fellow spies Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Melina (Rachel Weisz); Russia’s answer to Captain America, The Red Guardian (David Harbour); and the villainous Taskmaster. Whether we’ll get a cameo from Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is TBD. (The movie has teased a long-awaited return to Budapest, after all.)

Directed by: Cate Shortland
Starring: Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt and Ray Winstone
