If you have watched all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you may be wondering where Black Widow falls in the timeline. There are several movies coming up in the next few months, including Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Endgame, and Iron Man 2. Obviously, there are many things to look forward to! Here are some things you should keep in mind when you are watching the movies.
Captain America: Civil War
The Black Widow movie is a Marvel Cinematic Universe film that will see the return of Scarlett Johansson. She was last seen in Captain America: Civil War when she went on the run after betraying Tony Stark. This time, she will be on the side of the rebels.
She will be playing the role of Natasha Romanoff. Her family is on a mission with S.H.I.E.L.D. but she and her sister are separated. They are forced to flee after their cover is blown.
In her new role, the Black Widow will introduce her sister, Yelena Belova, who has been training as an assassin. Their goal is to bring down the Red Room.
If the Black Widow movie does happen to come out before Infinity War, it may be too late to make it work in the current MCU timeline. Although, that’s not to say that the movie won’t return to the MCU in the future. But, that’s not something that we can definitely predict.
At least the film will be available in theaters. We’ll have to wait until May to see it. Until then, we can check out the trailer below. You can also catch the film on Disney+ with Premier Access.
Iron Man 2
Black Widow hasn’t appeared in a Marvel movie in more than a decade, which is why fans have been waiting. But a new film featuring Scarlett Johansson’s character is finally coming to the big screen.
The Black Widow movie is a prequel, albeit one that focuses largely on the period between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. It introduces Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is tasked with finding Steve Rogers. She also becomes involved with Hawkeye, aka Clint Barton.
The movie also introduces a few new characters. In addition to the Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olson, and Hawkeye, we’ll see the Red Guardian, a Soviet-born clone of Captain America.
As you might expect, there’s a lot of action in this movie, but there’s nothing as spectacular as the opening of Avengers: Endgame. That said, this movie’s post-credits scene is impressive enough for us to be willing to wait another decade for another film with Scarlett Johansson.
We’ve already seen a number of films in the MCU, but Iron Man is the biggest. So what’s in store for him in the next few films?
Although the Black Widow movie doesn’t necessarily carry over any larger implications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it does serve as a great introduction to Johansson’s character. You’ll also be able to catch her again in Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had its fair share of multiverse stories. These are plots where multiple versions of a character are involved in a single movie. Examples include Spider-Man: No Way Home and the recently released Doctor Strange.
Black Widow and Gamora are both members of the Avengers. Though they haven’t appeared together onscreen, they have worked in comics.
While the two aren’t always seen together, they have been in a few crossovers. They have also worked with Doctor Strange. However, it’s unlikely that they’ll be seen onscreen together.
Both Doctor Strange and Black Widow are characters that do heroic things for plot reasons. That’s not to say that they’re indifferent to their own survival. Their abilities are impressive.
In addition to being a hero, Black Widow is also a skilled defender. Using time bombs and upgrades, she can whittle down opponents. She can also deal undefendable damage.
There are a few other MCU characters that aren’t traditional heroes. For example, Ant-Man is a reluctant hero who takes up the mantle for the Avengers to absolve himself of his sins.
There’s no telling what we’ll see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, we can expect to see the return of some of the characters we saw in Phase 3. Such as T’Challa as Star-Lord and Killmonger as Black Panther.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a new superhero in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. After a long wait, fans finally get to see the movie. A sequel that follows T’Challa’s loss and the loved ones attempting to move forward in his absence.
While the majority of the film takes place after Captain America: Civil War, there is a post-credits scene that takes place in 2023. The movie features several characters and is tied to the Avengers: Endgame timeline.
Black Widow is also a new character to the MCU. She is played by Scarlett Johansson. While the movie is set in the post-Captain America: Civil War time period, she is also a character embedded in the Infinity Saga. It is not surprising that the Marvel Studios has chosen to reboot her. There are plenty of mysteries surrounding her background that will be revealed.
Before she became a superhero, Natasha Romanov was a Russian spy. She has a large amount of power in the film, but is not as well-known as her counterparts, Captain America and Iron Man. Throughout the film, she meets a number of important people, including the C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross.
The end credits of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hint at the future of the MCU, as it includes a post-credits scene that takes us to 2023. If you want to know more about the upcoming movies in the MCU, you can visit the Disney+ website.
