Subj: Black Widow trailer

Sadly, generic Marvel trailer...

Since Cate Shortland directed psychological drama, I was hoping for something very different, for a change. The trailer reminds me too much 'Salt' & 'Atomic Blonde'.

Apparently, Red Guardian follows the same diet than Thor in 'Endgame'. So, Marvel Studios continue to recycle their ideas from one movie to the other.

The three Black Widows & Red Guardian remind me 'Charlie's Angels', 'Cat's Eye', 'The Heroic Trio' & 'Danger Girl' among other things. On the team, the MCU Red Guardian might have the same role than Ivan Petrovich had in comics.

I suppose that Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) might be revealed as a traitor and, thus, could be the MCU Taskmaster instead of Iron Maiden. Both characters were designed by George Pérez after all and Marvel Studios has the tendency to combine multiple villains into one cinematic character (Whiplash/Crimson Dynamo, Yellowjacket/Darren Cross, Ava Starr/Ghost...).
Also, Rachel Weisz said that her character is "involved in a scientific experiment".

But, even though Melina Vostokoff is the prime suspect, it could be a red herring. Yelena Belova, Rick Mason & even Red Guardian remain suspects as well.
- In comics, Yelena was once an adaptoid, Black Widow has Yelena's haircut in 'Infinity War' & 'Endgame' and the Black Widow movie is a prequel.
- Rick Mason & Taskmaster are both mercenaries with ties to SHIELD.
- Red Guardian apparently fights Taskmaster in the trailer but it could be a false trail. Both Alexi Shostakov & Ivan Petrovich became Black Widow foes in the comics.

It is also possible that more than one traitor is revealed...

IMO, so far, this trailer fades in comparison with 'The Villainess', 'Nikita' or 'Red Sparrow'.
