Once Upon a Time in Budapest
This weekend has been filled with so much news flowing out from D23 Expo. Some good, some bad, some in-between, I guess? One piece of news that has fans excited is the new trailer for Black Widow was shown to those in attendance at the Expo and it sounds awesome!
Now, I wasn’t in attendance, but thanks to Julia Alexander over at The Verge, we get a little peek at what they got to see. Now, I’m not going to break down the trailer here. You can go over and click the link here and read Julia’s article. Instead, let’s do the most nerd thing possible… talk about why I’m so excited!!
It’s the Budabest…
Its been ten years since Scarlett Johansson took the screen as Black Widow, and now she finally will get her solo film. Some have pointed out it may have taken too long, but nothing is as good as the present. From the description of the trailer, the film sounds like a non-stop thrill ride and that’s exactly what I was hoping for.
I feel like the easiest comparison is that this might be the MCU’s John Wick. The film takes place between Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. We will meet some new characters and some old friends. More importantly, we’ll get to see David Harbour as the Red Guardian, a Soviet Union version of good ol’ Captain America… maybe with less abs? Who cares!
The Real Budatest…
I promise that will be my last Budapest pun. Anywho! This film will be the real test for the future of MCU films and how they’ll experiment with the genres of their upcoming films.
So, are you excited for Black Widow? Do you imagine David Harbour will be amazing with a Russian accent? Let me know down in the comments below!
