Let’s face it, everyone cried a little when Nat threw herself off a cliff in order to obtain the soul stone and save the world, and the only thing which eclipsed her death in Endgame was the death of our beloved RDJ’s Tony Stark.
It is not the end of the road for Natasha though, not yet at least, since she has finally gotten her very own solo movie – Marvel’s Black Widow.
Before you get all excited let us remind you that Agent Romanoff is still pretty dead, and that the Black Widow movie about to release is actually a prequel, and the events of the movie take place sometime in between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It is safe to say that the upcoming movie might as well be the last time we get to see Scarlett Johansson’s portrayal of Soviet Spy Natasha Romanoff one last time.
Rumors have it that we might also be treated to a cameo from Robert Downey Jr. in the movie, and that is reason alone to go and watch it. But that doesn’t mean we should undermine Black Widow herself, she has been a prominent character throughout the first three MCU stages and has played a key part in developing the build-up to the Avengers movies. If that’s not enough, Black Widow is an MCU movie, which is seldom not absolutely awesome!
With everyone waiting eagerly for the movie, which was apparently supposed to release earlier this year in May, here’s what we know about it so far.
Black Widow Release Date
The release date for Black Widow has been postponed to 28 October in the UK and November 2020 in the rest of the theatres across the globe. Unlike other movies and shows that got postponed because of a halt in production, the only reason for Black Widow being postponed was that people would not be able to go watch it in theatres during the pandemic, and so the fixed release date was simply postponed to a date which wouldn’t have such complications.
Thankfully, November is not that far away; meanwhile, you can watch the two trailers released for Black Widow here :
Black Widow Plot
Black Widow will kickstart MCU’s phase 4 and will give us a backdrop into the life of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, who was a part of the original six Avengers.
The movie is set in the MCU timeline somewhere between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity war.
Although a prequel, the movie might give birth to the storylines of phase 4. In the trailer, we see Natasha return to Russia in an attempt to confront her past. We might get to see flashbacks of Natasha back when she was a Russian super spy.
The protagonist in this film is the Taskmaster, a notorious Marvel villain famous for being able to imitate the skills of his opponents in battle. He seems to be in charge of the black widow training academy which had taught Nat the tricks of her trade, and which might possibly be her next target. The movie will also feature new characters such as the Red Guardian, who in the comics is Russia’s attempt at recreating a Captain America, and might also feature returning characters such as Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark.
Fans are particularly excited to see Stark and Nat together on the big screen again since both characters died in Endgame and this might possibly be the last time we may see the two on the big screen again.
