Marvel released the very first trailer for Black Widow today, and together with new costumes for Natasha Romanoff, fans got to see some new faces in the film. The trailer featured our very first look at Stranger Things star David Harbour’s Red Guardian and it looks like fans are going crazy over the Soviet’s version of Captain America.

Taking to Twitter, fans are posting about Red Guardian, calling Harbour a cool cat and a beast. Sure, he might be a little bit on the fat side now, but the Stranger Things star looks powerful and fun in his suit as the Soviet superhero.

Check out some of the posts that fans have been sharing about Red Guardian down below:

We’re not entirely sure what relationship Red Guardian has with Black Widow, but the trailer for the movie implies that he’s part of Natasha’s family. Maybe he’s her brother, or maybe he’s part of her defacto superhero family when Black Widow was working for the Soviet.  

In a previous interview with, Harbour opened up about what he loves about Red Guardian.

"That's one of the things I really like about this character," Harbour told the entertainment news outlet, The one thing we do is know is that he's the counterpart to Captain America on the Russian Soviet side, but that way we have a lot of play with who he is and we are playing with him."

Based on the trailer, it seems like Red Guardian has a different kind of humor to him. We can’t wait to see more of the hero in Black Widow.

Black Widow premieres May 1, 2020.
