Director Cate Shortland and the cast of the Black Widow movie then came to the stage. The director talked about how Natasha is a great heroine because she has so many secrets and vulnerability. Johansson said, "I don't think I could've played this iteration of Natasha 10 years ago... I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman and in all of her many facets, and I'm excited for fans to see the flawed side of her, or what she perceives as the flawed side of her, and I'm looking to wipe out some of the red in my ledger."

Scarlet Johanssen then introduced the trailer for the movie, which at least a portion of which will be in Budapest. The trailer featured looks at Harbour's Red Guardian and Taskmaster.
