No, the adventure of ‘Black Widow’ does not happen between ‘Civil War’ and ‘Infinity War’

Viewing the films and series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney Plus following the chronological order, as the adventures occur in linear time, is an easily arguable error. There are scenes that cannot be understood like that at all, and the emotional reaction that is planned in the spectators regarding what the characters face becomes less effective. But it is also impossible. And the reason for this is found in Black widow (Cate Shortland, 2021).

Its plot is not located in the timeline of the saga between the films Captain America: Civil War Y Avengers: Infinity War (Joe and Anthony Russo, 2016, 2018), contrary to what has been said so far. And, to realize the reasons, one has only to pay attention to certain dialogues in which the protagonist Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) participates.

The most relevant antecedents

Marvel studios

The movie Civil war narrates the dispute between Marvel superheroes by the Sokovia Accords, which sought to control their actions after the catastrophe in the country during The Age of Ultron (Joss Whedon, 2015). Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) group is against, and that is why it is persecuted by the US Government with Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) at the head and the help of the Avengers in favor of the international treaty, with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) up front.

At a certain point and after a spectacular clash, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) are imprisoned in the Raft, a maximum security prison in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. And, in the last sequence of the film, the loyal Steve Rogers gets them out of there without exposing us many details of how it achieves it. Except for the use of brute force, of course.

The references to ‘Captain America: Civil War’ in ‘Black Widow’ are the key

The point is, Natasha Romanoff suggests in the movie that she can’t ask the “superscientist” who wears the Iron Man suit for help, and says that the Avengers “have divorced”; the context of Civil War, obviously. And the answer to the circumstances of the rescue at some point in the ocean can also be found in Black widow for others allusions.

At certain times, they refer to Natasha Romanoff’s friends imprisoned on the Raft. Y the final scene The film explains that Rick Mason (OT Fagbenle) provides him with the Quinjet, which also flies in Infinity War, to be able to go to these facilities and free the four superheroes. We must therefore understand that Scarlett Johansson’s heroine is next reunited with Steve Rogers and together they head to prison; and that she might stay in the vehicle to get away quickly while Cap does his thing.

Date of high on Disney Plus now and save thanks to the annual subscription, with which you can enjoy its entire catalog of series and movies.

All of it serves as justification She doesn’t even consider turning to any of her friends to tear down the Red Room and the terrible Dreykov (Ray Winstone). An idea that is not silly because we are talking about four people available for such a mission: Natasha Romanoff herself, Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexei Shostakov (David Habour) and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz); Against all the personnel under the villain’s orders, the lethal Black Widows and, in addition, the ruthless Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko).

And, of course, such narrative clues are decisive in locating these adventures, not after Civil war, but during the same.
