Black Widow Title Sequence

Perception designed the opening title sequence for Marvel Studios' Black Widow to help tell the missing years in Natasha Romanoff's story. This grim and haunting sequence shows the capturing of Natasha, her sister Yelena, and dozens of other young girls against their will. These girls are then put through training in the Red Room to become Black Widows, and once their training is complete, we see them sent out into the world to accomplish their deadly missions. Complete with a chilling soundtrack, this sequence takes a dark path to show the loss of these girls' youth and innocence.
