“Black Widow” is going to be an extra big spectacle – but many Marvel fans in Germany won’t get any of that
On October 29, 2020, “Black Widow”, the latest Marvel blockbuster, will hit cinemas, which will also have loads of IMAX scenes in its luggage. It’s just stupid that there are hardly any IMAX cinemas in Germany …
Originally scheduled for April 30, 2020 and then – like so many other films – postponed due to Corona, Cate Shortland’s “Black Widow” is now set to hit German cinemas on October 29, 2020. And the 25th film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will, judging by the trailers, offer spectacular action fireworks, which are now set to be even bigger than they already are. Literally.
Almost 30 minutes of the Marvel blockbuster are supposed to be IMAX scenes in which you can then see a whole 26 percent more picture. This is now reported by Heroic Hollywood. There are no further details on which scenes will be extra large on the screen, but as a rule these are mainly panoramic and spectacular action scenes, of which there should be plenty in the comic book adaptation:

Those format changes during a film are used to make certain images or scenes appear even larger and more powerful. A stylistic device that Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight”, “Interstellar”) has been using for several years, for example.
The only problem: If you want to experience full IMAX enjoyment, you also need an IMAX cinema. And there are not ten of them in Germany. This inevitably means that many people in this country do not live in the immediate vicinity of an IMAX cinema and sometimes have to take long journeys to see “Black Widow” in this format. Undoubtedly a knockout criterion for many moviegoers, whose love for the cinema is likely to reach its limits.

This is what awaits you in “Black Widow”
Scarlett Johansson has already made eight appearances as Natasha Romanoff alias Black Widow, who has always been considered one of the most mysterious characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The solo film ten years after her hero debut in “Iron Man 2” should finally shed some light on her story – because in “Black Widow”, which is mostly set between “The First Avenger: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War” above all, she has 123Movie grapple with her past, which is far from over.
Also there is shooting star Florence Pugh (“Little Women”, “Midsommar”) as Yelena, whom Romanoff met during their training together, as well as “Stranger Things” sheriff David Harbor as the Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as the seedy Melina. Marvel fans can also look forward to an appearance by the villain Taskmaster.
Anyone who wants to take a closer look at the Marvel heroine in preparation for “Black Widow” will get their money’s worth with “Black Widow Anthology” *. The volume, which is over 300 pages long, contains a number of selected Black Widow stories from the past 50 years as well as some exciting background articles on the figure and its history.
