Black Widow Film Prequel Might Really Take Place After ‘Avengers: Endgame’


Iron Man wasn’t the one Avenger who sacrificed himself to make sure Thanos’ defeat in Avengers: Endgame. Black Widow plummeted to her demise on Vormir in order that Hawkeye may get the Soul Stone, and she or he was nonetheless lifeless on the finish of the film. Contemplating that Scarlet Johansson’s tremendous spy character is getting a solo film, this presents a fairly large impediment for Marvel’s writers, however a brand new concept argues that Black Widow truly got here again to life on the finish of Endgame earlier than setting out on a brand new mission to seek out her father within the Black Widow film.

Often known as Natasha Romanoff, the previous Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a Russian tremendous spy previous to becoming a member of the group and, later, the Avengers. Very similar to her backstory, although, there isn’t a lot details about her untitled venture. Set images did reveal manufacturing underway in Norway and within the images, Scarlett Johansson is sporting Black Widow’s signature pink hair, minus the blonde ideas she had in Endgame (little question a degree to point out how little she cared about her look whereas grieving). Followers have speculated (and so have we) that the movie may happen at any level after Captain America: Winter Soldier and earlier than Captain America: Civil Conflict. However what if the movie takes place after Endgame? Loopy, proper? However not unimaginable.

Redditor u/preorom theorizes that Crimson Cranium needed to deliver Black Widow again to life after Captain America returned the Soul Stone. But when that’s what occurred, why didn’t she seem to her mates on the finish of Endgame?

“She wished to deal with one thing in her previous,” writes u/preorom. “As you understand Crimson Cranium instructed her father’s identify. Ivan. So she’s going to seek out her father.”

Natasha additionally nonetheless has her time journey gear and sufficient gasoline for a minimum of yet one more journey. So it’s doable that as a substitute of returning dwelling she may go even additional again in time to trace down the daddy she by no means knew about. (On this state of affairs, David Harbour might even play her absentee dad Ivan.)

It might be straightforward to learn this concept and scoff at the concept Black Widow’s sacrifice may very well be undone. In spite of everything, her solo film may very well be a prequel detailing her days as a Soviet spy previous to her introduction in Iron Man 2 and it’s not like every of the MCU movies have completely delved into her historical past. So there are a whole lot of unknowns relating to Natasha’s life that may very well be explored. Whereas the movie may turn into a prequel, any comedian guide fan is aware of it’s all the time doable to resurrect characters, and Black Widow would possibly show no totally different.

This concept works primarily to fill within the gaps and emotional dissatisfaction with Black Widow’s arc in Endgame. For instance, Tony was given a correct funeral service whereas Natasha barely garnered greater than a point out after her sacrifice.

There’s additionally the truth that Crimson Cranium introduced up the identify of her father, Ivan, and she or he revealed she hadn’t even identified his id. Why deliver him up in the identical scene as her demise if that wasn’t going to come back into play within the Black Widow movie? Endgame gave us a brand new glimpse into her previous by mentioning Ivan, so there’s positively extra to that story. Moreover, Section four of the MCU remains to be an enormous thriller, so something’s doable.

Might the Black Widow film happen after ‘Captain America: Civil Conflict’?

Maybe Crimson Cranium brings Natasha again as a result of he is aware of she has extra to perform. If she’s on a covert mission, she wouldn’t be capable to contact the remaining Avengers, so being on her personal would make sense. As to how she’d be capable to come again to the current from Vormir, properly, Black Widow was nonetheless sporting the Quantum Realm swimsuit when she died, so it’s protected to imagine she will nonetheless use it. Whereas Natasha’s demise remains to be a sore spot post-Endgame, she is lastly getting her personal solo film and it’s lengthy overdue.

Black Widow doesn’t but have a launch date.
