New Hasbro BLACK WIDOW Figures Give Glimpse Into May's Film - Potential SPOILERS

Hasbro has released images of a new wave of Marvel Legends Series 6-inch figures "in celebration" of and inspired by May 2020's Black Widow starring Scarlet Johansson.

As in past Hasbro Legends lines tied to movie, some of these figures will be plucked straight from the film (identified by the packaging), others will just be interpretations of Marvel Comics characters that seem like they'd be at home in the film.  

As their boxes indicate, Black Widow, Taskmaster, Yelena Belova, and Red Guardian are interpretations of the movie characters, although interestingly Hasbro's version seems younger, less gray and trimmer than David Harbour's Alexei Shostakov from the trailer. 

The absence of Rachel Weiz's Melina Vostokoff is an interesting footnote and will likely fuel Melina-Taskmaster theories. 

The Crimson Dynamo 'build-a-figure' is also of note, given parts of him are included in both the movie figures and the 'inspired by' figures. If we have to speculate, Newsarama would lean on Crimson Dynamo being in the film based on this.

As to whether any or all of Winter Soldier, Crossbones, and Spymaster play a role in the film remains to be seen. 

All figures (except Crimson Dynamo) are $19.99 and will go on sale this spring.
