The final trailer for Black Widow has hit the internet ahead of the movie's May 1 debut and fans are getting their first look into Natasha Romanoff’s secretive past.

The new trailer focuses on two different parts of Natasha’s past: her time in the Red Room and life with her family.

According to The Verge, Natasha learns in the new trailer that Taskmaster, Black Widow’s primary villain, is responsible for brainwashing a new class of soldiers. It’s up to Natasha and her family, specifically Yelena (Florence Pugh), to help take him down for good.

Along with Taskmaster, viewers are introduced to several new characters in the latest trailer such as David Harbour who plays Alexei — The Red Guardian, a sort of Russian Captain America — and Rachel Weisz as Melina.

For those who follow along with the MCU timeline, The Verge said that Black Widow will be set in the two years between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War when the teams reunited to try to defeat Thanos.

Black Widow hits theaters May 1.
