Black Widow’s early reactions are in and critics seem to be loving Florence Pugh’s performance in the Marvel film.
So, Black Widow is finally going to be coming out in cinemas.
It’s taken quite some time to get to this point.
The movie’s been delayed over and over again thanks to the pandemic.
Marvel Studios and Disney were very keen to ensure that this movie was released in theatres.
It seems as though their patience has paid off as cinemas are open again and people seem to be pretty excited to see the new Marvel film.
The early reactions are in and they really heap the praise of Scarlet Johannson.
However, it’s Florence Pugh everyone seems to be enamoured with in this movie.
Black Widow’s early reactions are almost all about Florence Pugh’s performance
Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh are brilliant as Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova (especially when they are together!) in #BlackWidow. Epic spy thriller.
The relationship is so fun to watch develop and fits into the MCU history really well. You're gonna feel things. pic.twitter.com/GQiRcjvTeX

Marvel movies are back! #BlackWidow is a tense, action-packed spy thriller that truly completes Natasha’s story in a visceral & emotional way. Florence Pugh CRUSHES it & is an instant MCU icon. This is like the MCU's Bond movie w/ shades of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE & THELMA & LOUISE. pic.twitter.com/bauc2XVQlF

#BlackWidow: WHEW. It's so great to have Marvel films back and I'm not mad we had to wait! Great action, a ton of fun & a solid send-off for Natasha. Florence Pugh steals the show..get ready to welcome Yelena THEE Belova to the MCU. I love Rachel Weisz & ScarJo + Harbour bring it

I liked the movie a lot more than I was expecting to, largely thanks to Florence Pugh who absolutely never misses.

BLACK WIDOW is a worthy send-off to Natasha Romanoff and ushers in of a new era of Black Widow with Florence Pugh's Yelena.
The wait for a solo film was long, but this spy thriller manages to stand-out as one the more compelling entries to the MCU.
Full review next week. pic.twitter.com/0ADnppQziH

This is just a drop in the ocean of tweets out there praising Pugh’s performance in the film.
She plays Yelena Belova in the film and it does seem as though her role is going to be expanded in the MCU after this movie.
Given how positive the reaction has been to her performance in the film, I’m sure that Marvel Studios’ executives will be very pleased.
It looks like Yelena could end up being the future Black Widow in the MCU, and the critics are all for it.
