Jennifer Lawrence goes Black Widow in the first Red Sparrow trailer

Marvel is really dragging its feet on giving Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow her own movie, so 20th Century Fox and director Francis Lawrence have decided to just beat Marvel to it with Red Sparrow. This trailer doesn’t offer a ton of information about the film, but what’s here is so reminiscent of Marvel’s super spy that this might as well be a Black Widow movie with the serial numbers filed off. Jennifer Lawrence plays a mysterious assassin who was trained as a ballerina and recruited into a Russian murder school, and eventually she rebels and tries to take back control of her own life. All that’s missing is a cameo from Stan Lee and a post-credits stinger. That being said, it’s a female-led action movie, and there still aren’t really enough of those.
