Disney and Marvel Studios dropped another tantalizing morsel on the upcoming Black Widow movie at the fan-facing event, showing off an extended preview of footage that offered people in attendance a new glimpse at David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov (aka the Red Guardian).
Harbour, along with Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow, aka Natasha Romanov) and Florence Pugh (Yelena Belova), piped in via teleconference for the event, checking in on a chunk of new film footage that showed Harbour, in one scene, greeting his fellow comrades.
“Family — back together again,” a costumed Harbour quipped to Johansson and Pugh in the new scene, while sporting a red hood and other Russian-looking finery. The new footage also highlighted a little bit more of Black Widow’s fight with Taskmaster, first previewed earlier this summer at San Diego Comic-Con.
The Cate Shortland-directed movie reportedly will feature more female assassins alongside Natasha, as co-star Rachel Weisz (who plays Melina) revealed to Comic-Con fans earlier this summer. As for Harbour's take on Alexei, the erstwhile Stranger Things police chief told SYFY WIRE last month that his version of the Red Guardian will "surprise you with his flaws, and with his complexities. I kinda don’t want to give it away, because I want you to be surprised as well.”
Black Widow stealths into theaters everywhere beginning May 1, 2020.
