‘Black Widow’ Will Showcase Events After ‘Captain America: Civil War’ And A Visit From Natasha’s Past

‘Black Widow’ Will Showcase Events After ‘Captain America: Civil War’ And A Visit From Natasha’s Past. After months of speculation Marvel Studios has finally confirmed some major rumors about their upcoming film, Marvel’s Black Widow.

During Marvel’s stunningly, epic Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con 2019, a ton of information about Phase 4 of the MCU was revealed, including the formal announcement about Black Widow. Marvel shared the films: cast, director, writer, and even a special sneak peek of some footage from the highly anticipated sequel. Specifically the moment we see Natasha meet Florence Pugh’s character, Yelena Belova.

Since the film’s announcement the cast and crew has been sharing bits and pieces here and there about what we can expect from the spy/action thriller.

Black Widow‘s Writer, Jac Schaeffer, spoke with Inverse and says only a part of the movie takes place after the climactic airport battle with her fellow Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, and that Natasha/Black Widow is “very much on her own and over the events of the Black Widow movie, she has to reckon with some of the red in her ledger.”

During an interview with ComicBook.com after Marvel’s Hall H panel, newcomer David Harbour (Stranger Things) shared his excitement for the film and working with Director Cate Shortland.

“This woman, Cate Shortland, who is directing this movie is one of the best directors I’ve ever worked with,” Harbour said. “She’s so, so smart, and makes such beautiful indie movies. The fact that you’d put someone like that at the helm of one of these huge action movies — and she pays such attention to the story and such attention to character — speaks volumes. The fact that these guys are so good at what they do, and so passionate about what they do, it feels tremendous. I’m very, very happy with the situation, working on it now. It’s on a scale and on a passionate level unlike anything I’ve ever done.”

David is not the only one at Marvel Studios who is excited to be working on such a highly anticipated prequel.

In response to questions of why it took so long to produce a solo Black Widow film for the MCU, Kevin Feige shared this statement in an interview with io9, “There’s a method to the madness. There’s always a method and doing things in an unexpected way is something we find fun. There are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn’t necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before.”

Marvel’s Black Widow will usher in Phase 4 of the MCU and is set to premiere in theaters May 1, 2020.
