In a few weeks, Black Widow, the new Marvel movie will finally be released in theaters. Alongside this, in Disney+ streaming, production will also be available through the Premier Access feature. Some people, however, have already checked the film and expressed themselves through social networks with their criticism and initial impressions.
Brandon Davis, from ComicBook.com, for example, shared with his Twitter followers that this was the best solo film by a hero made by Marvel so far.
“From beginning to end, the movie is great. There are excellent surprises, emotional moments of the character in violent action and Scarlett Johansson finally manages to put it all down on paper. Director Cate Shortland nailed it,” he wrote.
#BlackWidow is one of Marvel’s best solo films.
Start to finish, the movie is great. Excellent surprises, emotional character moments, bad-ass action, and Scarlett Johansson finally gets to pour everything into the role.

In addition to Johansson, the cast of Black Widow it also features guest appearances by Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbor as Alexei, O-T Fagbenle as Mason and Rachel Weisz as Melina. Executive production is once again by Kevin Feige, directly responsible for the Cinematographic Universe at Marvel.
To Alisha Grauso, from the Screenrant, these names are extremely competent in their roles in production. “Black Widow it shows exactly why Natasha Romanoff was the element that held the Avengers together,” she pointed out, still citing the very inventive action sequences that stand out in a moving script.
“Yelena will be the new fan favorite after this movie. Florence Pugh and Scarlett Johansson are phenomenal together as two “sisters” used and abused by a system they need to destroy,” he added.
#BlackWidow shows exactly why Natasha Romanoff was the glue that held the Avengers together. Shades of John Wick fight scenes & inventive action sequences wrapped in a heartfelt & poignant story about family & how the world treats girls. Excited to see Yelena carry the torch.

And Perri Nemiroff, from Collider, considered the film as a good deal. “I was a little worried to see how this story would play out knowing what happened in Ultimatum and if that would lower the stakes, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, this is the kind of prequel story that seems destined to improve other portions of the MCU,” he wrote.
Dug #BlackWidow a good deal! I was kinda worried about watching this story unfold knowing what’s to come in Endgame, that it might diminish the stakes, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, this is the kind of prequel story that feels bound to enhance other installments of the MCU. pic.twitter.com/sFcwHzW30Y
