Audiences have continued to be captivated by the MCU on the small screen thanks to the likes of Loki Y WandaVision, but after many delays and much waiting, the franchise finally returns to the majesty of the big screen with Black widow. Reviews of Marvel’s latest big-screen presentation are now available, and Black widow sounds like not just a worthy story about the foundation Avenger, but also a triumphant return to theaters.
Jamie Jirak from Comicbook.com found Black widow to be the perfect ending to Scarlett Johansson’s time in the MCU (although she argues that the movie came a bit late) and urges audiences to see it on the big screen.
“Black Widow will be available to buy on Disney + Premier Access, but if you have the opportunity to see it on the big screen, you should take advantage of it. The film will be the ideal return to the cinema for any viewer, even those who are just casual fans of the MCU. While it’s hard not to dwell on the fact that Black Widow should have been made a decade ago, the new movie still manages to be a well-placed addition to the franchise and the perfect send-off for Scarlett Johansson and Natasha Romanoff. “
Variety echoed many of these sentiments, finding Black widow to be a much deeper and more interesting Marvel outing than fans of the franchise perhaps expect.
“… Audiences entering ‘Black Widow’ may still wonder what exactly the main character will see. In Scarlett Johansson’s appearances in the MCU so far, going back to ‘Iron Man 2,’ it has been an amazing fighter in fancy leather with some signature razor movements. I was wondering, or maybe fearing, that “Black Widow” would last two hours of that. It isn’t; it’s much more interesting and absorbing. “
Meanwhile, Eric Kohn of Indiewire appreciated the film’s tribute to the Bourne franchise and was excited about the rest of Marvel’s Phase 4.
“Bad accents abound and no amount of fun can save the third act cliché of a giant flaming object falling from the sky, but overall,” Black Widow “amounts to a satisfying addition to the” The Bourne Identity “franchise. Of course, it’s actually a solid start to the latest cycle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the appeal of the MCU has always come from the way it plays with existing formulas with amounts of arranged action scattered throughout, and Entry number 24 hits all those grooves with style to spare. “
David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter couldn’t help but compare Black widow with the other female-driven Marvel installment, Captain Marvel, and the reviewer eventually found the former to be a much more satisfying experience.
Directed by Cate Shortland with propelling excitement, humor, and pleasantly understated emotional interludes, this independent version proves to be a star vehicle for Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, with top-notch support from Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbor. Squad of superheroes into high-octane espionage suspense Territory, makes a female-driven MCU entry far more satisfying than the smooth and bombastic Captain Marvel. “
IGN praised the film for its ambition before stating that, knowing Natasha Romanoff’s sacrificial ending, the film is shrouded in tragedy.
“The movie is, in a word, ambitious. It’s a superhero movie, but it’s also a spy action thriller, a dysfunctional family drama, a farewell, and overwhelmingly a movie about recovery from abuse. Much of it is not. It feels like a Marvel movie, thanks to the darker tone used to tell the story of a Russian show that kidnaps young girls and trains them to become killers. There is no catalytic event that has given Natasha superpowers. – No radioactive spider bite or gamma bomb. And Natasha has already defected to SHIELD, though viewers will be clear on why she joined in the first place. The film focuses on stating why she continues on the path of heroism, beyond simply Escaping the confines of his past life – on a hopeful note, he leaves an aftertaste of intense tragedy in one of Marvel’s original Avengers. “
The feeling that Black Widow should have been done much earlier in Marvel’s cinematic timeline, it’s something many argue, and Collider’s Matt Goldberg thinks the story would have been more fitting if it had focused much earlier on Black Widow’s career, rather than on. just use the character to introduce Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova.
“While the family dynamic is fun and the mission is standard Marvel fare, Black Widow finally feels like she’s telling the wrong story, but she has no choice given her location in the MCU timeline. If this movie had come out. In the mid-2010s, they might still have gone the prequel route, but they told the story of Budapest and his fateful encounter with Hawkeye / Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner). We know that’s a major turning point in his life. , and it would have been great to see how she developed and changed her direction from hired assassin to SHIELD agent. Instead, the story we’re getting is more of a backdoor pilot for the Yelena Belova show. I can only hope Marvel does. better with Yelena than with Natasha. “
Eventually, The Independent found the movie flawed, but couldn’t help but fall in love with the female-centric storytelling … even if it took Marvel that long.
“Despite all of Black Widow’s flaws, the things he does well build a more hopeful future for the women of the MCU, one with stories that not only invoke real and relatable experiences, but actually tell them. women behind the camera. It’s a shame Natasha never had this from the beginning. “
Directed by Cate Shortland from a script by Eric Pearson, Black widow sees Scarlett Johansson reprise the role of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, for what will probably be the last time. The supporting cast includes Florence Pugh, David Harbor, OT Fagbenle, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, and Rachel Weisz. Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Natasha Romanoff is on the run and forced to confront a dangerous conspiracy linked to her past. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Romanoff must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships they left in their wake long before she became an Avenger.
Black widow It is scheduled to open in the United States on July 9, which will be simultaneous in theaters and through Disney + with Premier Access. The film is the first in Marvel Phase 4.
