The first reactions to the upcoming “Black Widow” movie have surfaced on social media, and a lot of the reviews appear to be positive.

The reviews — which released at 10 a.m. MT — give a look at the upcoming Marvel prequel film, which will tell the story of Black Widow as she returns home to fight alongside her family. The film takes place after “Captain America: Civil War.”

“Black Widow” star Scarlett Johansson told in an exclusive interview that she always wanted to make sure the film — though in some ways a prequel — pushed the MCU story forward.

  • “Post-‘Civil War’ felt like a good time to start. We never intended on doing an origin story,” Johansson said. “I never wanted to do an origin story because I just didn’t want to go back, back. I wanted to move forward, even though we are going back, but it all makes sense when you see it. It felt like a good time because Natasha, she has always been, she’s always worked for someone. She’s always been a part of some operation. She’s always had some safety net. Not necessarily, I don’t know if safety net is the best way to put it, but she’s always been an operative, and she’s actually never really had to, for better or worse, make any decisions for herself.”

First, I’ll point to this social media review, which comes from a very specific writer you may have heard of:
