Marvel’s long-awaited and highly delayed movie Black Widow has been got hyped on the social media platform. The social media reactions and the tweets of the critics are rolling on a very high note. The movie was originally scheduled to be released in 2020 but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, everything has come to halt. But finally, it has been shifted to simultaneously Disney+ premiere access and theatrical release after being rescheduled so many times.
Then there comes a question among many of the fans and critics that whether the wait will be worth it? According to many reactions, it is a big yes.
Earlier the responses regarding Black Widow were very positive, specifically nodding to Florence Pugh who makes her MCU debut as Yelena Belova, another Black Widow agent who sees Natasha as something of a sister.
Here we present some of the reactions :-
CBR’s Megan Damore called Pugh an “absolute standout,” whose future in the MCU looks bright.
Meanwhile, several members of the press nodded to the surprising amount of comedy worked into the “bleak” tone.
Many other critics brought up comparisons to action franchises like James Bond and The Bourne Identity, citing massive action set pieces and the directing style of Cate Shortland, who, like Pugh, is also making her MCU debut. Others used the comparison to Mission Impossible and Thema & Louise.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a social media embargo lift day without writer Ben Mekkler getting in on the fun with a tweet about the zaniness of the “Russian JC Penny” chase you definitely won’t be seeing in the film but will probably want to imagine nonetheless.
Black Widow will release in theatres and Disney+ premiere access on 9th July 2021.
