Black Widow

Cate Shortland

The following screenings will be captioned for d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences: Sat 17 July, 17:00 and Wed 21 July, 20:15.

Although she’s been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2010’s Iron Man 2 and a core member of The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, is a character whose past we still don’t know a whole lot about. Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow (the character’s first solo film), looks set to change all of that, with a plot which will delve into the super-spy’s shady history in ways we haven’t seen before.

“gripping chase scenes, thrilling stunts… best enjoyed on the big screen”

When a dangerous enemy appears and with perpetual thorn in the Avengers’ side General Ross (William Hurt) on her case, Natasha finds herself drawn to Europe, where her path crosses with a figure from her past; Yelena (played by Midsommar and Little Women star Florence Pugh). Not exactly happy to see each other, the pair must confront their past together, and hopefully, clear a little of that red from Natasha’s ledger.

The supporting cast is excellent, including Stranger Things star David Harbour and Rachel Weisz, who are delightful as a kind of odd couple whose pasts are inextricably link to Natasha’s, and fit right into the kind of quippy, blockbuster entertainment that Marvel shine at. As well as an opportunity to finally give a fan-favourite character her due, director Cate Shortland makes the most of Marvel’s resources, packing the film with gripping chase scenes, thrilling stunts and the type of large-scale, inventive action that is best enjoyed on the big screen.
