The ‘Black Widow’ Super Bowl Spot Introduces Her First Family
The summer movie season begins this year with Black Widow, which will give Scarlett Johansson’s spy-turned-Avenger her first solo film. Johansson stars in the movie alongside Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz, who are all seen in this Super Bowl ad. It claims that these people were Natasha’s first family, before she became an Avenger. (The movie is supposedly set around the time of Captain America: Civil War. If you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame, you, uh, know why it’s not set in 2020.)
