A Black Widow movie may not be a reality (yet), but this brilliant fan-made title sequence certainly is. It was created by Christopher Haley for his After Effects class final project. He even came up with a synopsis and cast list:
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.
Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) – Scarlett Johansson
Yelena Belova (other Black Widow) – Rosamund Pike
Alexi Shostakov (Red Guardian) – Samuli Edelmann
Phil Coulson – Clark Gregg
Melinda May – Ming-Na Wen

The addition of Portishead’s “Sour Times” was a nice touch.
