It was Marvel Studios’ turn at the Brazilian CCXP expo today with studio chief Kevin Feige on hand to show off various things from the 2020 line-up of Marvel titles. First up, “Black Widow” scored a new poster which you can see below, while some new footage was also shown at the presentation.
Said footage included more scenes with David Harbour’s Red Guardian and a scene in which he asks Natasha if Captain America had asked about him. It was also confirmed the character used to be married to Rachel Weisz’s character Melina. Another scene had Florence Pugh’s Yelena taking a shot of vodka and running toward a motorcycle saying “My sister, an Avenger”.
Also shown was the very first footage from “Eternals” which met a very good response from the crowd. That footage was not finished, rather ‘raw footage’ without finishing touches as the film is still in production. Confirmed details include the story spanning 7,000 years and the apparent inclusion of the Deviants who are said to look very different than their comics counterpart.
That footage starts with Druig walking out a door and meeting assembled Eternals in their armor. That was followed by a clip of the various cast members in different locations. Sersi and Ikarus hold hands in one scene suggesting a romance (and potentially shooting down the talk of Ikarus being the first openly gay MCU character), Ajak rides a horse, and Kingo dances in a Bollywood-inspired scene.
There was also some stills from “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” series, and a better look at “WandaVision” with Feige confirming that series will introduce her full Scarlet Witch persona:
“[We have] the opportunity to tell their story, and show more of what Wanda can do, more of what makes Vision, Vision, and most importantly, reveal a name that I’m not even sure we’ve said in the MCU yet, but we make a big deal of in the show, is the fact that Wanda is the Scarlet Witch. And what does that mean, that she is the Scarlet Witch? That’s what we play into with this show in ways that are entirely fun, entirely funny, somewhat scary, and will have repercussions for the entire future of Phase 4 of the MCU.”
Feige has previously said that of all the upcoming projects, it’s the “WandaVision” series and the “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” film that tie in together the most and explains how it will impact all the MCU going forward:
“The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.”
“Black Widow,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “Eternals” arrive next year with “WandaVision,” “Loki” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” coming early 2021.
