The first social media reactions to Black Widow are finally here.
Find a roundup of Twitter “early reactions” below!
#BlackWidow was better than I thought it would be!
Although there’s some excellent action, what pulled me in was the really powerful themes & character moments the film presented.
Easily Scarlett’s best performance as Nat, and Florence Pugh is brilliant as Yelena. pic.twitter.com/CDjKJm4nVq

#BlackWidow is one of Marvel's best solo films.
Start to finish, the movie is great. Excellent surprises, emotional character moments, bad-ass action, and Scarlett Johansson finally gets to pour everything into the role.
Director Cate Shortland nailed it. Bravo. pic.twitter.com/sgEkUW63cT

#BlackWidow is excellent. An exhilarating shot of adrenaline. Scarlett Johansson & Florence Pugh nail the banter & ballet-like stunts. David Harbour is absolutely terrific. Big action set pieces are thrilling, propulsive & capably constructed. Multi-layered thematic resonance. pic.twitter.com/ew9r1NXvfL

#BlackWidow pays a beautiful and long overdue tribute to Natasha Romanoff. It’s also the spy thriller fans of the character have been asking for all these years. It’s funny, thrilling and very emotional. Florence Pugh is fantastic as Yelena Belova, who is definitely here to stay. pic.twitter.com/i0jimxIJG0

I got to see #BlackWidow last night, and as someone who has been waiting since 2010 to see Natasha Romanoff get her own movie, it was well worth the wait.
The actions rips, the emotion hits and the new characters joining the MCU are standouts. MORE BLACK WIDOW MOVIES PLEASE! pic.twitter.com/R0JUHThSiF

There are visceral moments, solid humor, & surprising twists (especially for big MCU fans!) MORE PLEASE! pic.twitter.com/Oqwirnxa3X

I watched #BlackWidow yesterday and it's as refreshingly different to other Marvel Studios releases as it is to just have these big movies back. The leads are awesome and the story does some unexpected things. It's the most adult MCU release yet, but still offers a few laughs. pic.twitter.com/ib9F0rX09t

Black Widow is so disappointing. Scarlett Johansson tries, but the script, pacing, & poor character development sink the film. Starts off promising but by the second act becomes a disjointed & uneven mess. Generic, uninspired, & ultimately lacking the Marvel Magic. #BlackWidow pic.twitter.com/rGJu51aJxS

#BlackWidow is not a bad film by any means, but it isn’t a necessary one either. If it had been released before #InfinityWar maybe I’d be singing a different tune. By the time the film reaches its 3rd act it completely falls apart.

Well, it looks like the majority of the people found positive things to say about the upcoming Marvel Studios film that acts as an origin story for Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow as well as a prequel to Avengers: Infinity War.
Of course, keep in mind that early reactions for films are usually positive. No offence to social media, but you guys are usually way off when it comes to determining what the majority of critics and audiences feel about a film.
I’ll go in with an open mind. I’ve been hearing that this film has shades of James Bond and Mission: Impossible, and that’s really all I need to hear.
Black Widow hits theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on July 9, 2021.
