Apparently the infinite delays suffered by “Black Widow” are causing the actors of this Marvel movie to reveal some of their biggest secrets, which on the one hand may delight some fans while others may classify the revelations as an uncomfortable spoiler . Anyway, now it has been David Harbor who has given details of the weight of his character in the plot and apparently he has a lot, a lot to do with Natasha Romanov’s past.
Until now it was known that the “Stranger Things” actor will play Alexi Shostakov or Red Guardian , a Soviet equivalent of Captain America (only a notable variation of the colors), according to the comics where he stands out for his fighting and espionage skills . It was also already known, according to the trailer and some interviews with Scarlett Johansson, that the film will explore the life of Black Widow before being part of the largest team of superheroes in the world.
Already in the preview, you can see David Harbor not only showing the potential of the character not only in battle but even supporting Yelena (Florence Pugh, the new Black Widow) and Natasha Romanoff by saying “We are family” and later sharing the table which sparked all kinds of theories among fans.
But now David Harbor decided to break the silence and has already given more details of the relationship of Red Guardian in the universe of Black Widow and Marvel and has confirmed that, in effect, he will be “the father” of the heroine. “The connection between him and Black Widow is that with them they started a family of spies in the United States during the 90’s. So, Rachel Weisz’s character, Melina, was like her mother; Alexei, the father and Natasha and Yelena were the girls. We see it at the beginning of the film and they function as a family, ”said the actor in an interview with Comic Book.
But while the trailer already showed a bit of that, David Harbor did not stop and revealed a little more of the jumps in time that we could see in the film through Red Guardian, Black Widow and Red Room, the program of Soviet training where Natasha was trained. “(He and Natasha) have known each other for a long time and lost contact for almost twenty years. When the story is picked up, Alexei knew Natasha deeply as no one else did as a child. He took it out of Red Room and put it back because he believed in their cause, “the actor has advanced when speaking of” Marvel’s Black Widow: The Official Movie Special Book “, a book that apparently contains many secrets of the film such as costumes and other spoilers.
This title also contains an interview in which Scarlett Johansson reveals that the film will reveal the intriguing mission that Black Widow and Hawkeye carried out in Budapest and that it has become one of Marvel’s biggest questions .
Black Widow will premiere until May 2021 after postponing its premiere several times due to the COVID-19 crisis.
