Black Widow Trailer Passes 1 Million Likes On YouTube, Trending At No. 2
The trailer has been received rather enthusiastically.
Marvel Studios debuted the teaser trailer for Black Widow yesterday along with an official poster to go by. It comes as no surprise that the trailer has received remarkably well. How well? While we still await view count numbers (if they will be released that is), the Black Widow trailer uploaded on YouTube has surpassed 1 million likes already and is currently trending at No. 2 (or anywhere in the Top 5-10, depending on where you live). That’s a feat that puts the trailer right up there in the league of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame trailers and should definitely come as pleasing for Marvel fans.
This Black Widow trailer has also surpassed 25 million views on its official YouTube channel, with another 20 million views coming in from its Twitter account. Counting views from a multitude of sources, I’m positive it’s garnered more than 100 million views in 24 hours although I’m not sure if the view count is high enough for Marvel to release an official number. Scarlett Johansson’s co-stars have also come to her
The trailer, meant to serve as an extended teaser (although teaser is really a stretch in this case) has showcased well what can be expected from Black Widow. Since going online, the trailer has evoked comparisons to Captain America: The Winter Soldier for its themes, genre and mostly grounded action. Marvel fans are busy dissecting the trailer looking for clues to the future of the MCU; you can check my modest breakdown here.
Black Widow is set for release on May 1, 2020 (or April 30, 2020). It is directed by Cate Shortland from a script by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson and stars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as The Red Guardian along with O-T Fagbanle and Rachel Weisz. The Taskmaster is set to appear as well, played by an unknown actor. Bookmark this hub for all news about the movie.
