Black Widow Poster Shows Off David Harbour's Red Guardian, New Costume For Natasha

Ready to get tangled in the Black Widow web?

During the madness of D23 Expo on Sunday, August 25, Marvel Studios' director of visual development Andy Park revealed the poster he created for Marvel's forthcoming Black Widow movie

The one-sheet, shared to Park's Twitter account with a heartfelt caption expressing his gratitude over designing the poster, features Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in a sleek new suit — plus first looks at David Harbour's Red Guardian (a.k.a. Alexei Shostakov), Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova, and Rachel Weisz's Melina, a spy trained in the Russian Red Room who gets involved in a mysterious scientific experiment. 

Not only does the poster show off the stunning new Black Widow costume — fit with a gold-decorated holster belt and matching gauntlets — and a few of the film's main characters, but it also includes the nefarious Taskmaster, seen at the top of the image. 

Elsewhere on the poster, just behind Yelena (another spy who is described as being a sister-figure to Natasha), are a few other women whose identities we don't yet know. It's likely that the women are spies within the Red Room initiative — and they must be pretty important to Natasha's origin story if they're included on an official piece of promo. 

The suit seen on this first Black Widow poster isn't the only costume Natasha will rock in the forthcoming flick. She'll also don an all-white get-up, as seen in the Black Widow footage unraveled at D23 during the Walt Disney Studios panel on Saturday afternoon. 

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously hinted that Black Widow is set to answer many lingering questions about Natasha's past, telling io9, "There's always a method, and doing things in an unexpected way is something we find fun. There are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn't necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before." He then added, "I look at Better Call Saul as a wonderful example of a prequel that almost completely stands on its own apart from Breaking Bad because it informs you about so many things you didn't know about before. So time will tell which way we've gone with a supposed Black Widow movie."

At the very least, Black Widow will detail how Natasha came to know Alexei, Yelena, and Melina; what she endured while training in the Red Room; and how she defeats the terrifying Taskmaster (because, let's be real, she's Black Widow and we know she's going to win that fight). 

Directed by Cate Shortland and also starring O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, and Olivier Richters, Black Widow will crawl into theaters on May 1, 2020.
