Black Widow’s plot leaks
The Black Widow leaks we saw in early and mid-2020 detailed the alleged plot of the movie. That happens with most Marvel movies, and many of those leaks turn out to be false. But some of them may contain genuine information. What is different about Black Widow compared to other MCU movies is the pandemic.
The health crisis forced Marvel to delay Black Widow to give the film the theatrical debut it deserves. And while Marvel was able to do little to change the overall plot of the film, the delays could have allowed the studio to change the post-credits scenes.

Black Widow Credit Scenes – January 2020 Edition
The Black Widow plot leak in mid-January 2020 claimed that the movie had two credits scenes, as follows:
I saw two post-credits scenes.
One is Florence Pugh and Skullguy giving William Hurt the flash drive and him telling them that they are just getting started.
Final credit is Hawkeye in a present assumption because he’s all tattooed and shit. He is at Nat’s grave with his children.
The July 2020 Credit Scene Variation
A leak from mid-July 2020 gave us a similar version:
Post 1 credits are Yelena entering a dark warehouse. A group of soldiers point weapons at him. She casually raises her hands and tosses the device onto a table. Sitting at the table is Thunderbolt Ross.
Taskmaster is there and Yelena gets angry saying that he killed her friend and that that was not part of the plan.
He removes his helmet to reveal a bandage and points out that she returned the favor by shooting him in the head. She points out that it’s not the first time she’s done that.
She tells Ross, “I think that frees me from our bargain.”
And Ross responds ‘oh no, we’re just getting started’.
The ending credits scene is Clint looking at Natasha’s grave with his children. Nice and cuddly moment, but honestly a bit of an emotional whiplash from the twisted spy movie that preceded it.
The actual Black Widow credits scene
A few months ago we learned that the incredible cameo of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was not supposed to appear first on the Marvel broadcast show. Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, you know, we’ll call her Val, was supposed to debut in Black Widow.

A Vanity Fair report said Val was supposed to appear first in Black Widow. The story also said that Marvel had “even greater ambitions” for Louis-Dreyfus. At the time, we had no idea where Val would show up, but a new Black Widow review tells us exactly where we’ll see her. If you have come this far, it should be very clear that you are in the credits scenes. From The Hollywood Reporter:
A post-credits recruiting scene featuring a surprise cameo from a big-name star seen in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier indicates possible future installments that will bring at least one key character here into the adjacent SHIELD fold.
The unexpected reveal from THR’s review gives us enough information to conclude that Val will appear in the Black Widow credits scenes. And who better than Florence Pugh Yelena Belova for Val to recruit her? Or is it the supposedly amazing Taskmaster who goes to work for the Contessa? We’ll have to wait and see.
It is unclear if we are seeing more than one credits scene. But the gist of Val’s scene appears to be similar to previous leaks. Marvel could have gone a different route for obvious reasons, choosing to replace William Hurt with Louis-Dreyfus. However, that is just speculation.
Black Widow opens July 9 in theaters and on Disney + Premier Access.
