'Black Widow' trailer release date could be way sooner than you think
Update: It’s here! Watch the Black Widow trailer above. The original article continues below.
There is a disturbance in the Force, and it’s not for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. On December 7, Marvel Studios chairman Kevin Feige will attend Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in São Paulo, where Marvel is expected to reveal more about what’s to come in Phase Four, and fans are speculating that could include the debut of the first trailer for Black Widow, the first film from the studio in 2020.
On Friday, Marvel announced that Feige will attend CCXP, a popular South American fan convention that studios like Marvel and Sony have used to hype films, including Venom and Spider-Man: Far From Home. At 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (4 p.m. local), Feige “will talk about upcoming releases,” according to a tweet from CCXP’s parent company’s Omelete.
Little else is known about what Marvel will bring to Brazil. Previously, the studio has screened preview footage or brought out cast members to answer questions. Last year, Marvel’s presence at CCXP was limited to Spider-Man: Far From Home last year. Sometimes these previews are exclusive, meaning they aren’t released online and only spread through word of mouth. (In other words, there will be lengthy descriptions on Reddit by Sunday. )
With Marvel and Phase Four, this leaves additional room open for speculation regarding more casting, plot details, and even concept art reveals for any of the dozen-ish movies and shows releasing in 2020 and beyond. We could see concept art for Doctor Strange’s new costume in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, or we may finally learn that Pierce Brosnan will join Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. CCXP could also be an opportunity for Feige to discuss movies in the MCU that the studio has confirmed but not revealed at length, such as Captain Marvel 2, Blade, or even Fantastic Four and X-Men.
Popular speculation on Reddit and Twitter is that Marvel may screen footage of Black Widow. Whether it’s the same footage previewed at San Diego Comic-Con is unclear, and whether that footage is released online even more so. Given the proximity of the convention to the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (December 20), it is very plausible Disney will release a trailer for Black Widow to attach it to one of its biggest movies of the entire year. In that case, we could get our first look at the Black Widow trailer in less than a week.
Black Widow will release in theaters on May 1, 2020.
