Total Film Magazine has unveiled their new Black Widow subscriber's cover, and it features Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff striding with a purpose, batons in hand.
This appears to be a zoomed-in version of the first theatrical poster, but it does provide a much better look at the Academy Award-nominated actress as Marvel's Fallen Avenger.
Black Widow is still set for a theatrical release despite a recent rumor that Disney might be considering sending it straight to streaming, but we're still not sure when that's likely to be.
We'll keep you updated, but for now be sure to check out the cover below along with some recent shots from Johansson's EW photoshoot and a cool new promo pic featuring Taskmaster.

A new shot of Natasha alongside her "sister" (Florence Pugh) and "mother" (Rachel Weisz).
Although they're not blood-related, there does seem to be a strong family dynamic at the heart of the movie. “I thought it would be a straightforward action movie," says David Harbour, who plays the "father" in this equation. "And then it wound up being a real character study of a dysfunctional family.”
Scarlett Johansson #1
Although fans have been asking for a standalone Black Widow adventure for many years, Johansson reveals that she actually wasn't all that interested - until she met director Cate Shortland, who was intrigued by the character's resilience.
“We just bonded over stories about trust and about intimacy and about women surviving,” Shortland says of her initial chat with the actress. “You didn’t have to be a superhero to identify with a woman who has had a really tough childhood and has survived and has a huge heart and helps other people.”

Black Widow does take place before the events of Avengers: Endgame (obvioulsy), but it sounds like it's going to have more to offer than the usual blockbuster prequel.
“A prequel that simply filled in the blanks of things you already know is not very exciting,” says Feige. “How does she get her Widow stingers for the first time? How did she learn to do a flip? That doesn’t matter.”
Johansson poses for EW's cover, not in character as Black Widow, but certainly taking some inspiration from the Lethal Avenger's moniker.
Finally, we have an awesome new promo shot of the mysterious Taskmaster keeping his target in his sights.
We still don't know who'll be playing the villain (though one cast member may have spilled the beans), but we do know that he's going to be a very formidable foe.
