Marvel fans have been clamoring for a Black Widow film ever because Scarlett Johansson attracted the super-spy with Iron Man 2 to the big screen in 2010. Not only is that the comic character getting her solo debut, but she is kicking Marvel’s new Phase 4 – as long as COVID-19 does not cause any flaws. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is quite literally currently entering a new phase, with Black Widow in the helm.
Marvel Studios has some pressing questions. It will need to reply to fans in this Stage 4 film. Like, what is next for Black Widow and her role from the MCU? Remember, her narrative arc ended with Avengers: Endgame. To help give you a better idea of the standalone Black Widow movie hitting cinemas this season, for example, how it may affect the potential of the MCU, here’s what we know about it.

- Rachel Weisz – Melina Vostokoff
- David Harbour – Alexei Shostakov aka The Red Guardian
- Robert Downey Jr.. – Tony Stark aka Iron Man

Black Widow: Plot
For the uninitiated, Marvel intends and releases movies from narrative stages that are connected. Many of the titles in each step are standalone movies on characters, plus they usually build-up toward the Avengers teaming up to take care of a hazard in the phase’s last film. Phase 3 bucked that trend slightly Far From Home as something of an Epilogue into the three phases’ Infinity Stone-driven saga.
This places Black Widow in a fascinating spot. Although it’s set a decade before, in the period of this MCU, it’ll begin a new period of Marvel films, Phase 4. It is starring a character who died in Phase 3. Thus, it’s an incredibly Phase 3-ish movie, and it’s intended to be a Stage 4 movie.
What occurred in Budapest?
There’s a throwaway scene where Hawkeye and Black Widow compare Loki’s invasion of New York. Marvel movie is set, then the moment would have happened, but fans would like to know what happened in Budapest, which was akin to an army invading New York. Maybe we will find out in Black Widow.
