Though the release date for Black Widow was pushed back from May to November this year, Marvel has continued to roll out merchandise promoting the Scarlett Johansson movie, and the latest of these is a Build-A-Bear stuffed toy based on the titular superheroine.
Billed as an adult collector’s item, Build-A-Bear’s Black Widow plushie is a color brown teddy bear with green eyes and red hair. Standing around 16 inches tall, the plush toy is dressed in an Avengers suit that resembles one of Black Widow’s costumes seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Completing the stuffed animal’s spy look are two plush batons attached to her front paws, and a comic book graphic of Black Widow printed on her left back paw.
Priced at $35, Build-A-Bear’s Black Widow plushie is an online exclusive that can only be purchased from the Build-A-Bear website.
Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, Black Widow picks up after the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, with Natasha Romanoff (Johansson) finding herself alone and forced to confront a dangerous conspiracy connected to her past. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Romanoff, aka Black Widow, must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. The first film in Phase Four of the MCU, Black Widow also stars Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov, aka Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff, among many others.
Black Widow is now scheduled to open in U.S. theaters on November 6th after it was delayed earlier this year from its original May 1st release date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
