New “Black Widow” Clip Teases Natasha & Yelena’s Potent Sisterhood

“You got a plan?”

It’s a valid question coming from Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), the sister (of sorts) to Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Natasha is behind the wheel as she drives the two of them away from a motorcyclist in pursuit. The motorcyclist has a gun and is taking dead aim at the sisters, and Yelena wants to know if Natasha has gamed this scenario out at all. This fresh clip from director Cate Shortland’s Black Widow teases the first big Marvel movie to hit theaters since the pandemic hit more than a year ago, and the first film in Marvel’s Phase 4. It’s also a reminder of why seeing a film like this in the theater is an unbeatable experience—as thrilling as the clip might seem on your computer screen, it’ll be orders of magnitude more engrossing on a big screen.

Set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow centers on Natasha’s attempt to deal with her past and the people she left behind when she became an Avenger. This puts her back in contact with Yelena, as well as Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour). It won’t be long, however, until the four of them will have to face a mysterious force determined to bring Natasha down, and anyone else colluding with her.

Black Widow hits theaters and Disney+ Premiere Access on July 9. Check out the clip below.

Here’s the official synopsis from Marvel:

In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller “Black Widow,” Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises.

Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina.
