Now that Scarlett Johansson may be very seemingly capturing the Black Widow standalone film, two questions come up: Will this film look ahead or backward? And can any of the opposite Avengers be a part of her?
The film may be very more likely to be a prequel except Marvel pulls out time journey or different mystical magic. SPOILER: Natasha gave her life in Avengers: Endgame in order that the staff might retrieve the soul stone — the identical one which led to Gamora’s demise in Infinity Warfare.
So will her Marvel Cinematic Universe mates be a part of her? We’re guessing no. The film will virtually actually look again on the character’s origins, which haven’t been proven earlier than, and the opposite Avengers merely aren’t a part of that story. However we might be unsuitable. Marvel has shocked us earlier than.
Why ‘Black Widow’ will almost definitely be a solo film
Not like a lot of the different Avengers, Black Widow doesn’t have some type of supernatural or high-tech origin: Iron Man had all his Tony Stark Toys, Captain America had his tremendous serum, and the Hulk had his gamma accident, and Thor is nothing lower than a god.
The one one of many staff from the 2012 Avengers who’s just like Natasha is Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), who can be a talented fighter who doesn’t depend on superpowers and who normally eschews high-tech weapons. That’s why, if any Avenger joins her within the new film, it is going to almost definitely be Clint. Not solely are they related stylistically, however Clint was along with her when she died in Endgame. So even when they improbably go the sequel route, Hawkeye can be her almost definitely associate.
If the solo film does go the sequel route, that might contain resurrection, and that type of otherworldly occasion can be at odds with Black Widow’s gritty, all the way down to earth model. Together with her tortured background as a reformed Russian spy/murderer, Natasha has not been liable to sharing particulars of her previous. That’s why a film that reveals her origins has essentially the most potential, and why the opposite Avengers usually are not more likely to a part of her film.
How the opposite Avengers might seem
We are able to see a technique the MCU would pull off a Black Widow sequel. The trailer for July’s Spider-Man: Removed from House particularly mentions multi-verses, like the sort Sony deployed so efficiently in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which gained an Oscar for the Greatest Animated Characteristic. That’s one approach to carry Natasha again with out involving the far-out options that Physician Unusual and mates would dream up.
However, we’ve got by no means actually seen Natasha on her personal. At any time when we’ve seen her, she’s all the time been mixing it up along with her fellow Avengers or serving to out different staff members of their solo films. The MCU launched the character in Iron Man 2, and after The Avengers, she helped Steve Rogers in Captain: America: Winter Soldier, one of the crucial earthbound of all of the MCU films.
One of many causes that movie labored so properly is that it performed like a paranoid conspiracy thriller from the 70s, even to the purpose of casting Robert Redford, a veteran of that style through Three Days of the Condor. Black Widow matches into that style like a glove.
Which Avengers may pop up within the new ‘Black Widow’ movie
So, provided that Black Widow has been a staff participant we’ll check out the probability of the opposite Avengers becoming a member of her.
Iron Man: Neglect it. They teamed up as soon as, however Tony’s lifeless too, and it’s powerfully unlikely Disney would pay Robert Downey Jr. hundreds of thousands for a couple of days work.
Captain America: They teamed up earlier than, so been there, carried out that. Chris Evans has made it clear he’s carried out.
Thor: His hammer would come in useful, however a deity and a spy would make for unusual bedfellows.
The Hulk: Age of Ultron flirted with a Natasha/Bruce Banner romance, however the Russos principally dropped that concept for his or her Avengers films.
Hawkeye: The one one who actually is sensible, as famous above.
Right here’s who we all know is within the film, moreover Johansson: Rachel Weisz, David Harbour and Florence Pugh. The discharge date has not been revealed, however our greatest guess is subsequent Might.
