The first teaser of Marvel Studios 'Black Widow' has been released. Scarlett Johansson returns as the iconic spy Natasha Romanoff from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Black Widow is the founding member of the Avengers team and the only woman member until the arrival of Scarlet Witch in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'. 

This is the second woman-centric film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after 2019 blockbuster film 'Captain Marvel'.

Florence Pugh plays the role of Natasha's sister Yelena Belova and she reunites with her. 

The film follows the events of 'Captain America: Civil War' where Natasha is on the run because she betrayed Iron man and Black Panther. 

Her character sacrificed herself to help the Avengers fight Thanos in 'Avengers: Endgame'. Scarlett Johansson made her first appearance in 2010 film 'Iron man 2'.

The film is directed by Cate Shortland and co-stars  Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, and OT Fagbenle. Robert Downey Jr will probably make an appearance as Iron Man since the film follows the events of 'Captain America: Civil War'. 

Johansson herself has been cam[paigning for a solo Black Widow film since 2015 after the success of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' but Marvel studios were reluctant. 

The success of 'Wonder Woman' and 'Captain Marvel' encouraged the studio to go ahead.
