AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #45: “DARK MARVEL” VARIANT by DOALY
At the moment of this posting, the BIG GAME is on and I’ve just returned from a day long convention at the Javits Center covering for my other website “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” so I don’t even know where the game actually is in terms of play. What I do know though is that we have a “Big Game” spot for the upcoming Marvel Studios feature “Black Widow” and since I’ve recently discussed here brand-new comics series that is coming soon (discussed HERE) and the awesome action figures from the film that are available (discussed HERE), I figured why not post this brief trailer clip. After the clip you can peruse the premise, casting and review the posters that have surfaced so far. We still don’t have any new ones to share but when they come to light I will likely give them a post of their own to tie all these other items together. Now get thee to watching.
The Press Release:
Announced this morning in an exclusive interview with IGN, Eisner-nominated writer Kelly Thompson (Captain Marvel) will be launching a new Black Widow ongoing series this April! Drawn by rising star artist Elena Casagrande (Catwoman), BLACK WIDOW #1 will feature a deadly mystery that only the Marvel Universe’s greatest spy can solve.
Beyond San Francisco’s Golden Gate, Natasha’s entire world will be upended as she finds herself up against some of her most formidable villains. But what happens when they’ve found a way to take her out – even more permanent than death? Readers can expect all the intrigue and heart-pounding exploits that Natasha Ramonoff is known for as well as appearances by characters like Red Guardian and Yelena Belova! With this new series, 2020 will be Black Widow’s greatest adventure yet!
“I think Black Widow is an incredibly rich character in that she works well in a lot of different genres, but that can also make her a little tricky – if you try to do too much with her instead of committing to a clear vision I think you can run into trouble,” Thompson told IGN. I’m very interested in the duality of Natasha… so look for that to be a recurring theme in this first arc as she struggles against that and leans into it. We have some high profile guest stars (and of course some impressive villains) but this story has to stand on its own for a lot of reasons that will become clear immediately in issue one… which starts off feeling like a classic Natasha story and then quickly becomes quite unlike any story we’ve ever seen for her before.”
“Kelly Thompson is one of my favorite writers. She really knows how to get to the core of what a character is,” says Associate Editor Sarah Brunstad in the BLACK WIDOW Launch Trailer. “This new series asks the question: What would happen if some of Black Widow’s greatest enemies come together and figure out how to put her out of commission for good?”
“Natasha’s fought so many different villains over the years but she’s never had that one definitive villain in her life but now we’re bringing her past back to haunt her so to speak with the Red Guardian,” CB Cebulski adds. “What Kelly Thompson is doing, pulling together all these amazing elements of Black Widow’s past to bring her in the future makes it a must-read comic of 2020.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t know about you readers, but I have been a fan of the Black Widow since I used to read her adventures when she was a part of the regular “Daredevil” series back in the 1970’s (yes I realize I am dating myself in that disclosure). I am also pretty stoked for the upcoming film and the subsequent action figures that are coming from Hasbro and have already been talked about here on the website. This new series will likely be a very good one and as I close up these thoughts I wonder what you think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
Though we’ve had a number of posts go by since the Marvel Studios “Black Widow” film teaser trailer went live, if you saw it you likely loved it and cannot wait for the film. If you didn’t see that trailer click HERE to on point because the studio has just recently revealed a “Special Look” clip. Down below the video you can peruse the premise and casting once again and since no additional posters have yet been revealed I just used the ones from the other post. Check it out.
