And just like that, the social media embargo for Marvel’s BLACK WIDOW has been lifted. Fans that have been waiting patiently for Natasha Romanoff’s long-overdue solo adventure, it’s time to get hyped! First reactions to Marvel’s latest tentpole are making the rounds online, with many praising the film as an action-packed, character-driven thrill ride that launches Marvel’s Phase 4 with a bang. Oh, who am I kidding? People are going nuts for this movie, so far. I have yet to see one negative reaction to the film, which leads me to believe that the rest of us are in for one hell of a treat on July 9th.

Directed by Cate Shortland (LoreBerlin Syndrome), Black Widow takes us to the time when Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.

As a point of note, JoBlo’s reaction is coming later this evening, so be sure to check back to see what we thought.

Remember, if you live in an area where theaters are still shuttered – I’m looking at you, London, Ontario – you can rent Black Widow for $29.99 on Disney+ via Premium Access. I know it’s not the same as seeing it on the big screen, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?

How do these early reactions make you feel? Are you more hyped than ever to experience the first film in Marvel’s Phase 4 plan? Let us know if you’re seeing Black Widow in theaters or at home in the comments section below.
