SALT LAKE CITY — Marvel Studios has released a handful of posters in the wake of D23, and they each give an interesting look at “Black Widow,” “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”

The poster for “Black Widow” — which was posted to Twitter by Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park — shows Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) in a new, more detailed uniform with gold accents on her wrists and belt.

Behind the hero is (clockwise from left) Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Taskmaster — a villain who can learn any skill through observation, according to IGN — Rachel Weisz (Malina) and David Harbour (“Stranger Things”). Harbour plays Red Guardian in the movie, and you can see him here in costume with a massive beard.

Park also posted his take on “WandaVision” as well, which shows Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen) in a 1950s-set living room. Half the image is desaturated, while the in-color portion includes a look at both heroes’ comic-inspired appearances through shadows.

Out of any upcoming Marvel project, “Wandavision” is a wild card — Polygon notes Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said the movie is a tonal cross between “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and, well, other “Avengers” movies. The cast also includes Randall Park as FBI agent Jimmy Woo (from “Ant-Man and the Wasp”) and Kat Dennings as Darcy, Jane Foster’s (Natalie Portman) friend from the first two “Thor” movies.

Adding to the fact that the show will lead directly into the horror-tinged “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” it remains to be seen exactly how the show will wrap up all these disparate Marvel players.

Finally, CNET notes the official Disney Plus Instagram account posted a first look at Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan in their titular Disney Plus series “Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” While Bucky doesn’t appear to have anything new going on, it’s worth noting Sam Wilson is still Falcon and not Captain America.

In “Avengers: Endgame,” Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) passed his shield on to Falcon, which presumably included the Captain America moniker. But, according to IGN, Mackie said this isn’t the case.

“I’m not Captain America. Just because (Steve) told me to hold his shield, he didn’t say ‘you’re Captain America now.’”

According to CNET, “Black Widow” will arrive in theaters on May 1, 2020, while “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” will release on Disney Plus sometime fall 2020. “WandaVision” will arrive the following spring in 2021.
