The first trailer of Marvel Studios' Black Widow unveils the first look of David Harbour's Alexei Shostakov a.k.a Red Guardian. Check out the photo below.

Red Guardian is the Russian counterpart of Captain America. His suit is similar to Captain America suit but instead of blue and white, it's scarlet and black. The trailer also confirms that Red Guardian is an ally to Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova.

In a previous interview, Harbour teased his character.

"That's one of the things I really like about this character," Harbour said. "There's an openness to interpretation. 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."

Harbour added, "Initially when I heard the pitch she (director Cate Shortland) was like 'He's this and he's this.' And I was like 'Yeah, I got it.'...he spins and he twists and he turns in ways that make sense and in ways I don't expect characters to go there. I expect characters to be a color or a flavor and we get to know them and this guy is really rich."

David Harbour will debut as Red Guardian in Black Widow on May 1, 2020.
