David Harbour teased one of Marvel’s craziest super teams might be in Black Widow

May 13th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Stranger Things and Black Widow star David Harbour has taken to Instagram to let everyone know that the movie will be hitting cinemas on July 9th… but he also did more than that; he teased a potential appearance of one of Marvel’s coolest – and weirdest – teams.

Harbour plays Red Guardian in the movie, sort of Russia’s version of Captain America and a surrogate father to Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow… but he may also be part of something else. Something weirder. Something… bigger.

Harbour wrote: “Ursa, Yelena, Nat, CD, Sputnik, I and all the rest of the winter guard look forward to sharing a popcorn bag and a big ole screen in a dark theater with ya on July 9”

All these are characters in the Winter Guard in the comics, Ursa, CD (Crimson Dynamo) and Sputnik are, so far, unknown characters in the MCU but it seems that Black Widow may have some history with this characters.

Oh, Ursa is a human/bear by the way. Which is awesome.

In the comics The Winter Guard, left, were set up to be Russia’s Avengers, so their inclusion here could be very exciting stuff especially if we do get to see Ursa Major,a humanoid bear, Sputnik, a machine-controlling synthezoid and the Crimson Dynamo who is Russian Iron Man.

We have seen clips in the trailers for Black Widow that seem to be taking place outside a prison or some sort of holding facility… perhaps this is where we see the team or at the very least, see them teased, setting up future adventures.

Whatever happens, it could be very exciting to see these guys on the big screen.

You can see Harbour’s original post below.

Let me know what you all think about this development and if you’d like to see this super team onscreen.

Black Widow will arrive in theaters and on Disney+ on July 9.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
