Black Widow Title Sequence

For his final project in an After Effects class, Christopher Haley made a speculative title sequence for a Black Widow movie. I hope he got an A in the class. I love the way it evokes a James Bond spy film and separates Black Widow from the normal Marvel superhero style and makes it something unique. The song is “Sour Times" by Portishead. 
Cut off one head, two more shall take it's place. . . For this speculative title sequence of a Black Widow film I decided Black Widow's villain would be. . . Black Widow. Yelena Belova, to be specific. Belova believes herself to be the superior Black Widow, and in some ways she is right. Swift and ruthless, Belova is the most talented assassin to graduate from the Red Room--and now she is Hydra's most deadly weapon. At Belova's side is a super-soldier of her own, Alexi Shostakov--the Red Guardian, who also happens to be Natasha's former lover. When the new heads of Hydra make a play for the power of the infinity stones it is up to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s top agent to stop them.
Marvel has movies scheduled through 2020, but sadly, a Black Widow film is not among them. Maybe in a few years, Haley will be in a position to direct one. (via Daily of the Day)
