Black Widow is a movie that many of us have been waiting for since May of 2010, when Natasha Romanoff came crashing into the life of Tony Stark and took over as one of our favorite movie heroes. Now, with the trailer drop for her standalone movie, Twitter has been reacting as if this isn’t something we’ve spent nearly ten years waiting for.
Many of us have taken to our accounts to share our love for the character, the trailer, and the new characters that are coming into our lives now that Natasha is going back to her roots to explore her past. She may have found a new family before Captain America: Civil War, but her family from her past with the Red Room is coming back, and it’s exciting to see!

The reason why I’m excited for #BlackWidow is because I’ve grown up reading the comics & fell in love with HER ORIGIN STORY.
She has been conditioned to be this cold & ruthless spy but overcame that & found/built a new FAMILY.
Such a complex character!

One of the best parts about this, though, is the reactions pointing out that this was a movie that should have happened back in 2012/2013.
I can’t think about Black Widow without thinking about how WILD the fandom would have gone for this movie… in exactly 2013. https://t.co/3YTDqKuf5o

I really do think that the time for this movie has passed but I do wonder what it’ll add to the MCU. We probably couldn’t have had a new Black Widow running around the MCU, say, back in 2013. https://t.co/DseQ40PL1U

Ben Whishaw overshadowing a Black Widow trailer on my feed? What kind of 2012 pipe dream is this?

Ahh I’ve watched this so many times today already and I can’t believe we’re finally getting a Black Widow movie. It really feels like 2012 https://t.co/ly9jKwe2dq

Internet: Here is a Black Widow movie trailer
Me: omg did we just travel back in time to 2012 when people actually wanted such a thing!?

To be fair, this is one movie that, yes, is arriving a lot later than we wanted, but it’s something that I, along with a lot of Twitter, am excited for. Black Widow comes out in May 2020, and I can’t wait.
