What better way to celebrate National Superhero Day (a holiday you’ve definitely heard of before just now) than to learn more about Natasha Romanoff? Marvel Studios has released a new Black Widow featurette that looks back at the life of the titular Russian spy-turned-Avenger. Scarlett Johansson, who reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow in her long-awaited Marvel solo film, assures fans that “it’s time for her story” before launching into a quick recap of Natasha’s blood-stained but illustrious career.

From her beginnings as a KGB spy and a SHIELD agent, to a renowned member of the Avengers, Natasha has had a grand life onscreen that tragically ended in Avengers: Endgame. Her long-delayed solo film (which arguably comes five years too late) will explore her time between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War as she attempts to wipe out the “red in her ledger.”

The featurette is filled with footage we’ve already seen, from Natasha’s appearances in Iron Man 2, Avengers, Captain America: Civil WarAvengers: Infinity War, and more. It shows a glimpse of footage from Black Widow, but nothing we haven’t already seen in the dozens of trailers and TV spots that were released before the film was delayed multiple times due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Black Widow will debut simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021.
