Football fans watching the the national championship game between the Clemson Tigers and the LSU Tigers on ESPN Monday night got an eyeful of Marvel Studios' next movie, "Black Widow," courtesy of a new trailer.
The trailer, also released online, gives a bit more back story of the standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson's titular super spy.
Directed by Cate Shortland -- Marvel's first solo female director -- the movie takes place after the events of "Captain America: Civil War" and before Johansson's character's sacrifice in "Avengers: Endgame."
We learn from that trailer that Natasha Romanoff is on the run and reunites with her spy "family," including Johansson's fellow Oscar nominee Florence Pugh as Yelena; David Harbour as Alexei/The Red Guardian and Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz as Melina.
"I was trying to do something good," Romanoff tells her "sister," played by Pugh. "Be more than just be a trained killer."
"You're fooling yourself," Pugh replies. "We are still both trained killers."
Together, they must band together to unravel a deadly conspiracy -- seemingly a new army of "widow" assassins -- and take on one of Marvel Comics' classic villains, Taskmaster, a fearsome mercenary with the uncanny ability to mimic the fighting style of anyone who crosses his path.
That skill is teased in the new clip, when Widow faces off with him on a bridge and the warrior perfectly mirrors her "superhero landing."
Marvel Studios also released a "Legacy" video, showing Johansson's history of the character going back to 2010's "Iron Man 2."
"If there's one movie people have been asking us to make for a very long time, more so than any other film," Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explains, "it's the Black Widow movie."
ScarJo says, "Very few actors can say that they've worked on a character for 10 years, and then suddenly have this chance to delve deep into the inner workings of this person"
"We're going to be able to create something is that a different flavor for the Marvel Universe," Johansson says.
"Black Widow," the first of Marvel Studios' Phase Four MCU films, opens May 1.
Marvel Studios is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
