At this point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which began with Iron Man (Jon Favreau, 2008), no one can be surprised that Black widow (Cate Shortland, 2021) hit theaters and on the Disney Plus platform with a post-credit scene.
The twenty-three films above have a; even to The Avengers: Endgame (Joe and Anthony Russo, 2019) they added another eliminated as such some time after they had released it; and the three television series launched to date, WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki (Jac Schaeffer, Malcolm Spellman and Michael Waldron, 2021) have the corresponding ones after several episodes; not forgetting the last one, of course.
So it would not be reasonable for this adventure of the skilled Natasha romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) break such a pleasant marvelite tradition.
The intervention of an enigmatic character
What the Australian director Cate Shortland (Lore) tells us in Black Widow – with the collaboration of the screenwriter Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok) according to a story devised by the aforementioned Jac Schaeffer (TiMER) and Ned Benson (The disappearance of Eleanor Rigby) – is what leads the protagonist to definitively destroy the Russian program that had turned her into such a relentless fighter. To her already his fake sister Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), with whom he reconciles in the meantime; as well as with her false parents, Alexei Shostakov (David Harbor) and Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz).
For this reason and in the only post-credit scene, Belova going to visit the empty tomb by Natasha Romanoff; And he does so at some point after his sad and inevitable sacrifice during Avengers: Endgame. It was on the planet Vormir, and to achieve the blessed Gem of the Soul; as Thanos (Josh Brolin) had murdered Gamora (Zoe Saldaña) in Infinity War (Russo Brothers, 2018).
Together with Yelena Belova he suddenly appears in the cemetery Countess Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), whom we met in the chapter “Truth” (1×05) of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. They give us to understand then that the first works for this dark character, accepting commissions as presumably John Walker (Wyatt Russell).
‘Black Widow’ prepares us for ‘Hawkeye’, the Disney Plus series
The aforementioned sets a new goal for you, catch the “responsible” for the death of Natasha Romanoff: the good guy Clint barton (Jeremy Renner), who tried to sacrifice himself instead of her as we all remember well. So the post-credit scene from Black widow gives us part of the plot kernel of Hawkeye (Jonathan Igla, 2021), one of the next Marvel series on Disney Plus: the reasons why Hawkeye will come into contact with the sister of his long-awaited friend.
It seems probable that Yelena Belova will pursue him to fulfill the mission entrusted to her by the countess and, surely, with a certain furious obstinacy for your personal involvement. But we do not know if this Black Widow character is aware of the true circumstances of Natasha Romanoff’s death or if, in any case, he blames her for being present and not having prevented it; or for not having tried harder for that purpose.
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. It includes unlimited access to all premieres already Star. You will also be able to see the content of Marvel and Star Wars and the great animated films of Pixar.
It is an unfair prospect, of course. Clint Barton fought as much as he could with her in Avengers: Endgame to be the one who rushed from the top in Vormir. But perhaps the mysterious aristocrat has managed to manipulate her into believing him to be guilty to such a degree and turning the heroic archer into her next prey. Or maybe he’s just trying to grab you because of your work commitment and from there, in any case, get out a bond for mutual loss. We’ll find out in Hawkeye.
