2021 is looking better and better! Thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we’ve already enjoyed some Phase 4 content like WandaVision starring Elizabeth Olsen as the almighty Scarlet Witch alongside her Avenger and late lover Vision (Paul Bettany).
Since WandaVisionIn the epic season finale, MCU has also introduced another great series on Disney Plus – The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with the good friends or “sidekicks” of Captain America (Gasp!) Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
Now the MCU has dropped another great edition to Phase 4 – Black WidowAnd while we thought we lost the Avenger, Marvel wants us to know she’s back and ready to kick an evil a **. Let’s see.
The trailer is here! Before Black Widow was the super assassin we know and love, we’re thrown back in time and see Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) return to her family before jumping off a cliff on Vormir to grab the soul stone, the human race, and defeat Thanos. REST IN PEACE
Luckily, Marvel cried as much as we did and decided to bring the Avenger back in her own movie. The trailer indicates that the film will hit theaters in May, due to the pandemic, Black Widow has been resisted a few times, but will be officially released on July 9, 2021.
According to Marvel, the film will explore Natasha Romanoff’s history as a spy and “confront the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past ensues.” But can she deal with her past and stay true to the fact that she is an Avenger? Time will tell.
Marvel is known for wasting a ton of series and movies and calling them “stages” because they relate to the Marvel comics and end up having some crazy connections. Thus began Phase 3 of the MCU with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and ended with Avengers: Endgame to give our heroes the best sender they could. And what a broadcast it was!
Now, thanks to Marvel’s incredible cast and crew, Phase 4 has officially begun rolling out and has yet to disappoint fans. Besides Phase 4 series such as WandaVision The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, giant Marvel movies such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Eternals, and more are coming out in March 2022 to introduce us to new superheroes, villains and of course, heartbreaking plot twists!

But where does Black Widow fit in MCU’s phase 4? Well, since it’s a prequel and with a villain like the Taskmaster, we’re going to say the very beginning. According to Geek’s Den, the Black Widow will bring back a well-known Marvel villain – the Taskmaster, who appeared in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and let’s not forget his famous “secret villain school”, which will hopefully be revealed in the new movie.
Black Widow is the spin-off we’ve been waiting for since the character first appeared onscreen in Iron Man when she was hired to work with another deceased character, Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man 😭.
Let me introduce myself, Yelena Belova
While we’ve heard a lot about Natasha Romanoff’s untrustworthy past, the film will also focus on her successor Yelena Belova. Screenrant reported that Black Widow will introduce Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) as her old friend or “sister” as they take out Taskmaster and his red room. They may not be blood related, but we can certainly see some similarity in those kicka ** moves.
In fact, Black Widow director told Cate Shortland rich: “(Kevin Feige) realized that the audience would expect an origin story, so of course we went in the opposite direction. And we didn’t know how wonderful Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we didn’t know how great. “
“Scarlett is so nice,” Oh, I’ll give her the baton. “So it will propel a new female storyline,” explained Shortland.
