For his After Effects class final project, Christopher Haley made a title sequence for the not-in-existence Black Widow movie. It has an obvious inspiration, but if you’re making a spy movie, why not pay tribute to Bond?

Haley even has a full plot synopsis and cast list:

Cut off one head, two more shall take it’s place. . . For this speculative title sequence of a Black Widow film I decided Black Widow’s villain would be. . . Black Widow. Yelena Belova, to be specific. Belova believes herself to be the superior Black Widow, and in some ways she is right. Swift and ruthless, Belova is the most talented assassin to graduate from the Red Room—and now she is Hydra’s most deadly weapon. At Belova’s side is a super-soldier of her own, Alexi Shostakov—the Red Guardian, who also happens to be Natasha’s former lover. When the new heads of Hydra make a play for the power of the infinity stones it is up to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top agent to stop them.

Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) - Scarlett Johansson

Yelena Belova (other Black Widow) - Rosamund Pike

Alexi Shostakov (Red Guardian) - Samuli Edelmann

Phil Coulson - Clark Gregg

Melinda May - Ming-Na Wen
