Hi, it’s Jay, and I’m holding the fort for Kim today, which means I get to do a trailer review. Apparently I picked a good week to take this responsibility, as there was a lot of of good trailers to choose from – it seems media companies are gearing up for a big year in movies and TV shows.
Let’s get into it right away.
My wife and I watched the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first part of this year, and as we progressed, we couldn’t believe that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow didn’t have a movie of its own yet. So as you would expect, we are very curious to see Black Widow, especially afterwards the new trailer that came out Saturday.
