Natasha Returns From the Dead
Another much less doubtless however not insane principle is that the Black Widow film will reveal that Natasha just isn’t useless. While the film has been framed as a prequel, that doesn’t rule out the chance of no less than half of it being set after the occasions of Avengers: Endgame—a story construction that was usd in Captain America: The First Avenger, which, whereas principally set throughout World War II, sees Steve get up in modern NYC in its remaining minutes. In reality, a Black Widow body story or epilogue set submit the occasions of that film appears doubtless.
If that is the case, we may get an replace on Natasha that sees her dying scene from Endgame difficult indirectly. While discovering out that Natasha isn’t actually useless, or has been returned from the useless indirectly, would undercut the burden of Endgame‘s stakes and sacrifices, Natasha’s sacrifice on Vormir has lengthy been a contentious plot level. While some discovered the Vormir scene (which did bear some reshoots) extremely transferring and satisfying, others, together with myself, had been disenchanted to see the solely unique feminine member of the Avengers not solely killed off, however to have her dying framed in a method that appears to recommend her life as a single, childless lady was price lower than Clint’s as a father and husband.
Past that, it felt bizarre to have such an elaborate funeral for Tony in Endgame, with out having some sort of ceremony to acknowledge Natasha’s dying, which was additionally instrumental in saving the world. While Endgame‘s lack of a funeral for Natasha could be explained away by good, old-fashioned sexism, it also could be a clue that the MCU Powers That Be have continued plans for Natasha, and therefore didn’t need to spend time on saying goodbye to the character on display. Given that multiverse and time journey are well-accepted components of the MCU, it is vitally attainable we may see Natasha once more. And the Black Widow film can be the right place to have that reveal.
