Black Widow was destined to start phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and bring back Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff for the last time. However, the coronavirus pandemic postponed its theatrical release date on more than one occasion.
In fact, fans even raised the possibility of it coming through Disney Plus; a move similar to that of Warner Bros, which released Wonder Woman on HBO Max. However, the idea was discarded and the study confirmed that Black Widow would see light on May 7, 2021.
Months after the announcement, Variety revealed that if the forecasts for spring – which depend on the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccine – do not improve, the premiere of said film could be extended until 2022. This would again alter the calendar of marvelitas premieres, whose phase 4 has already started with the launch of WandaVision on Disney Plus.
The last time we saw Black Widow was when he sacrificed his life so that the Avengers could defeat Thanos in Avengers: endgame. Following this tragic event, fans thought the film was an origin story, but they couldn’t be more wrong.
Black Widow – official synopsis
Contrary to what many fans believed, the prequel will not touch the life of Black Widow before she became a spy, but instead will address one of her latest adventures.
After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Natasha Romanoff experiences loneliness, so she decides to resolve aspects of her past that still haunt her.
