The first reactions for Scarlett Johansson Black Widow are there, teasing the character’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s hard to believe but Black Widow is finally out and real people have actually seen it. A causal delay amid COVID-19 pandemic, Marvel’s Black Widow is gearing up to make its film and Disney Plus Premiere Acess debut next month. Focusing on Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff as she reconciles with her demons and family, the film should finally bring closure and context to the character.
The first reactions for Scarlett Johansson’s final outing as a character have been released and as expected, they are overall very positive. Critics praised Black Widow for his emotional sentimentality and supporting cast, as well as his acting. Viewers especially loved Florence Pugh’s Yelena Balova, who is set to make huge strides in the future of the MCU.

Taskmaster was pretty disappointing, including the reveal of who is hiding behind the mask. Dreykov is easily one of Marvel Studios’ weakest villains of all time. Florence Pugh and David Harbor kill him, however.

Marvel movies are back! #Black Widow is a tense, action-packed spy thriller that truly complements Natasha’s story in a visceral and emotional way. Florence Pugh crushes him and is an instant MCU icon. It’s like the MCU’s Bond movie with undertones of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE & THELMA & LOUISE. pic.twitter.com/bauc2XVQlF

Marvel fans will really appreciate #Black Widow. Lots of questions are answered with lots of cool action. The big deal is we know Nat so well now, she’s hugely overshadowed by almost everyone in her own movie. Florence Pugh in particular. Still, a solid addition to MCU. pic.twitter.com/xjW6aJyQkR

#Black Widow is one of Marvel’s best solo movies.
From start to finish, the movie is awesome. Great surprises, emotional moments for the characters, jaw-dropping action, and Scarlett Johansson finally gets to put it all into the role.
Director Cate Shortland got it right. Well done. pic.twitter.com/sgEkUW63cT

Also the action is non-stop in #Black Widow and so well done. And if you like it, you can thank the Director of the 2nd Unit Darrin Prescott. You know his work in the films “John Wick”, “Black Panther” and “Captain America: Civil War”. Don’t watch on Disney +. See it in a movie theater. pic.twitter.com/SiCuL66llR

As a person who entered #Black Widow worrying that it might look like a placeholder following Nat’s fate in ENDGAME, it’s a joy to wash that worry away. This is a fantastic chapter of the MCU, filled with thrilling action, real stakes and a KNOCKOUT end credits scene !! (2/2) pic.twitter.com/jtDFVZOztJ
