Black Widow Season 2 Plot
Black Widow Season 2 Plot is set in 1995. super soldier Alexei Shostakov and Black Widow Melina Vostokoff work as Russian undercover agents, posing as a family in Ohio with Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova as their daughters. They steal S.H.I.E.L.D. intel and escape to Cuba where their boss, General Dreykov, has Romanoff and Belova taken to the Red Room for training. In the following decades, Shostakov is imprisoned in Russia while Romanoff and Belova become successful, dangerous assassins. Romanoff eventually defects to S.H.I.E.L.D. after helping Clint Barton bomb Dreykov’s Budapest office, which apparently kills Dreykov and his young daughter Antonia.
Romanoff and Belova break Shostakov out of prison to learn Dreykov’s location, and he directs them to Vostokoff, who lives on a farm outside Saint Petersburg. Vostokoff alerts Dreykov and his agents to arrive to take them, but Romanoff convinces Vostokoff to help them and the pair uses face mask technology to switch places. Dreykov escapes as other Black Widows attack Romanoff, but Belova exposes them to the antidote. Romanoff copies the locations of other Widows worldwide from Dreykov’s computer as the facility begins to explode and fall. She retrieves two surviving antidote vials and frees Taskmaster from the locked cell. Vostokoff and Shostakov escape via a plane while Belova takes out Dreykov’s aircraft, killing him.
Black Widow Season 2 Cast
Black Widow Season 2 Cast has not been confirmed as of now so we do not have the confirmed cast list who will be seen in season 2. But we can tell you about the ones who are expected to be seen in season 2. Here presenting you the list of the main characters who will be seen in Black Widow Season 2.
- Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff – An Avenger, highly trained former-KGB assassin and former agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. She described the film as an opportunity to show the character as “a woman who has come into her own and is making independent and active choices for herself”, while being in a dark place with no one to call, and felt the character’s vulnerability set her apart from the other Avengers.
- Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova- A sister to Romanoff who was trained in the Red Room as a Black Widow. Belova is unapologetic and confident in personality herself, curious, and emotionally brave. The character is a skilled fighter but does not know how to live a normal life.
- David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov- The Russian super-soldier counterpart to Captain America and a father figure to Romanoff and Belova. He is both comically and tragically flawed.
- O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason- An ally from Romanoff’s S.H.I.E.L.D. past who is romantically interested in her. He is a “finder for people who aren’t so affiliated with armies” who assists Romanoff in that manner. The film’s final scene, in which Mason provides Romanoff with a Quinjet, was added as part of reshoots in early 2020 after test audiences liked seeing Romanoff and Mason together.
- Olga Kurylenko as Antonia Dreykov- Dreykov’s daughter who completes missions for the Red Room. She has photographic reflexes that allow her to mimic opponents’ fighting styles and uses techniques from superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, etc.
- Ray Winstone as Dreykov- A Russian general and the head of the Red Room. He is a coward who is “puppeteering things” from the shadows and does not care about hurting others.
- Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff- A seasoned spy trained in the Red Room as a Black Widow and a mother figure to Romanoff and Belova who is now one of the Red Room’s leading scientists.
