‘Black Widow’ finally premiered to tell the story of Natasha Romanoff before ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ happened. The end of the movie cleared up a few things, though it also cast some doubt on future implications for the MCU.
After several delays in its release date, we can finally take a look at Black Widow, the Marvel Studios film in which Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) tells details about what happened in Budapest and we know her past that goes back to her childhood, all with the aim of filling certain gaps in his story and doing him justice as one of the most important characters in the world. MCU. Now, it is time to explain the ending that cast some doubts, although from now on we warn you that there will be spoilers then.
NATASHA AND HER LOOK IN AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
After Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and company escaped the final stage before General Ross (William Hurt) arrived, somehow Natasha Romanoff manages to evade the character to her team again and later he meets again with Mason (OT Fagbenle), who gets him a Quinjet to go to his reunion with his old friends to rescue some from prison.
By then, the ex-spy already has the look that we saw him in Avengers: Infinity War, that is, his hair is shorter and is painted blonde. From the first part of Black Widow Natasha Romanoff’s intentions to paint her hair had been hinted at, but the surprise encounter with Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) made her give up this idea in order to escape with the antidote and meet her sister again.
In addition, they also gave an origin to the vest that Romanoff uses in Infinity War, since now we know that it is a gift from Yelena and she carries it with pleasure, in addition to being useful with all those bags she has. All this without leaving aside the fact that her family encounter helped her to be clear that families can be dysfunctional, but in the end they are important, so she finally decides to leave to help Captain America (Chris Evans) and company in secret while feel satisfied with the experience you lived.
‘Black Widow’: When will it be free in the Disney + catalog?
WILL TASKMASTER RETURN?
Maybe one of the biggest buts it has Black Widow is the development of Taskmaster, an antagonist who painted to be a tough rival to defeat, but finally Natasha unmasks and manages to free Antonia from the mind control she was subjected to. Later, she is taken by the girls who were in the Red Room to a place that they do not detail.
Although his story has an apparent happy ending, it really seemed like Taskmaster’s abilities were more exploited, being a character capable of imitating any movement. It would be interesting if they reinserted it in some way, maybe someone else manages to get the suit and perfect the technique to then be a more independent villain, although for now it seems that its development has stalled to the sadness of many fans. Of course, there is also the possibility that he has a development similar to that of Bucky (Sebastian Stan) as the Winter Soldier, trying to overcome his traumatic events, but in the intervening harming several people.
NATASHA AND HER FUNERAL
In Avengers: Endgame one of the biggest complaints was the lack of Natasha Romanoff’s funeral, who sacrificed himself in Vormir so that Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) would obtain the Soul Stone and ultimately the Avengers could defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin). As we know, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and his now iconic snap ended up sealing the fate of humanity and he did receive funeral honors for such an act, so Marvel Studios somehow compensates for the fan request to let the ex-spy have her own grave.
Yelena goes to the cemetery to pay her respects to Natasha, which in a certain way acts as a courier pass, that is, now Belova will have more participation in the MCU while Scarlett Johansson has mentioned that she does not want to return (for now) to the character of Romanoff, so evidently this scene is the end of a story that spanned 11 years and received justice through the approval of his own individual film.
VALENTINA ALLEGRA DE FONTAINE
We met Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) at Falcon and the Winter Soldier, when she recruited John Walker (Wyatt Russell) for the team she is building with men and women possessing unique abilities; He gave him a new suit to make him a US Agent. It has now been revealed that she is Yelena Belova’s employer.. Although the name of the organization that Valentina is forming is momentarily kept secret, it is rumored that it could be the Dark Avengers or the Thunderbolts.
Valentina in the comics is known for being Madame Hydra, but also for her acts of betrayal. At the time she was part of the SHIELD ranks, until it was revealed that she was a spy; even this path led her to maintain a romantic relationship with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson in the MCU). Although details are scant on how this character will impact Phase 4 of the MCU, it is a fact that it has begun to directly or indirectly influence the paths that various superheroes travel.
YELENA BELOVA ON THE HUNT FOR CLINT BARTON
Valentina entrusts Yelena with the mission of finding Clint Barton, whom she describes as the person responsible for Natasha’s death. This revelation is important because it makes sense of the announcement several months ago in which they confirmed the appearance of Florence Pugh in the cast of the series Hawkeye. It is likely that at first she has dangerous intentions against the archer, but it could also happen that she discovers that Valentina is hiding information from her about what actually happened in Vormir, finally, it is not something of public knowledge and only the Avengers know well. What happened.
Hawkeye I could have Yelena as some kind of antagonist in the beginning, but it will undoubtedly define the path that the young woman must cross to perhaps become the new Black Widow and even be part of a new team of superheroes.
