Natasha Romanoff is one of my favorite MCU characters and Black Widow highlights why.
Scarlett Johansson is better than ever and this just makes me yearn for even more of her, but it also makes you truly appreciate the hero that Black Widow was. #BlackWidow

Cate Shortland’s style and voice is all over this movie btw. And I appreciated that Black Widow feels smaller in scale than some of the other Marvel solo movies. It favors character exploration over big game changers. It’s intimate in the way some of my favorite BW stories are.

In particular, fans are loving the performance of Florence Pugh, whose Yelena Belova character looks set to take over the mantle of the MCU’s Black Widow for years to come:
Florence Pugh is a superstar, David Harbour is a scene stealer, and Rachel Weisz is Rachel Weisz. Cast is *excellent*.
Will #BlackWidow crack your Top 5? Probably not. But is it a worthy addition to the MCU and a touching, propulsive farewell to a beloved character?
