It had beforehand been revealed that the Stranger Issues star was set to play Purple Guardian within the newest addition to the MCU, however we hadn’t seen a lot of him in costume. David Harbour appeared within the background of a beforehand launched poster, however that was about it. Right here, we get a number of actually beauty on the actor as Alexei Shostakov, who primarily goes on to develop into the Russian equal of Captain America. That’s evidenced by the character’s costume within the trailer, which bears plenty of similarities to Cap’s swimsuit, solely purple as a substitute of blue.
We see the character in a number of key sequences within the Black Widow trailer. Apart from the cash shot of David Harbour within the full costume combating Taskmaster, we see a shot of him in civilian garments at what appears to be like to probably be a jail, in addition to a shot of him shirtless and flexing, which provides us a have a look at Alexei’s tattooed physique. There’s additionally the joke that he makes in regards to the costume nonetheless becoming, implying that he is gained some weight because the final time he put it on.
For individuals who will not be acquainted, Purple Guardian first appeared in The Avengers #43 in 1967 and was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema. The Alexei Shostakov model of the character was a patriotic Russian hero. He was educated by the KGB to develop into the nation’s reply to Captain America, solely with out the tremendous soldier serum. As a substitute, he needed to make up for it with superior weaponry and elite coaching. Within the comics, he was married to Natasha Romanoff. It would not seem, primarily based on what the trailer reveals us, the MCU is taking issues in that route. However David Harbour does have a vital line within the trailer, which is price discussing.
“Household, again collectively once more.”
The sequence contains Florence Pugh’s Yelena, Scarlett Johannson’s Natasha and Rachel Weisz’s Melina sitting round a desk. Are all of them associated by blood? Or is it extra of an adopted household scenario? The latter choice appears extra probably. Cate Shortland (Berlin Syndrome) is within the director’s chair, so we’ll should see her tackle it. Black Widow is about to be the primary Section four MCU film and can hit theaters on Might 1, 2020, from Disney and Marvel.
