Distinguished readers of all persuasions and callings, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is back in theaters. It’s hard to believe it, but Marvel’s Black Widow is the first MCU movie to debut in theaters since 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. But with great returns come great responsibilities, like clearing out a familiar red spot in our cinematic ledger. That’s right, it’s once again time to ask the question: to 3D or not to 3D?
Now if you want to know whether or not Black Widow is worth your time as merely a movie experience, that’s not what we’re covering here. To learn that lesson, you’ll need to head to Sean O’Connell’s official review and get the goods there. Meanwhile, we’re about to take a deeper look at Scarlett Johansson’s big MCU prequel, and shares some thoughts about whether or not you should spend the extra 3D ticket money, or if you’d be better off settling some old debts yourself.
Normally, a Marvel movie like Black Widow is a shoo-in for a top score in the Fit department. With all of the action you’d expect from a film such as this, there’s plenty of opportunity to dazzle the audience with visual feats in the third dimension. However, Black Widow is much more introspective than most of your typical entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; which means there’s fewer set pieces to show off through. For this reason, the film loses some Fit points.
