The Marvel Cinematic Universe took a hiatus due to the pandemic, but that doesn't mean there are no pending productions. According to what the CNN website mentions, Disney decided to delay the premiere of Black Widow for 2021, due to the coronavirus crisis that prevents the industry from taking its normal course.

The delay of this film caused that, as mentioned by RPP Noticias, it is the first year without films in the franchise since 2010, the year in which Iron Man 2 was released. Therefore, we decided to find out all the information that is known about the film based on the character played by Scarlett Johansson.

All the information about Black Widow

The first thing to say is that this movie will be the first prequel within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From the Tomatazos website, they highlight that Marvel's Chief Creative Officer, Kevin Feige, clarified that this film would not chronologically follow the events of the last film, Spider-Man: Far From Home.

This is because the character who will star in this installment, according to what the El Universal website reveals, had a "definitive death in Avengers: Endgame." The fate of Natasha Romanoff, known as Black Widow, came to an end when she sacrificed herself to obtain the Soul Stone in order to defeat the archenemy Thanos.

However, the character characterized by actress Scarlett Johansson was always quite enigmatic, especially in reference to the turbulent past that she mentioned having, although we never got to know. Well, this movie will seem to delve into her individual adventures, clarifying several of the existing issues.

At the same time, from Wipy TV they emphasize that this film could clarify one of the doubts left by the film Captain America: Civil War. It is about finding out why the Winter Soldier murdered Howard and Maria Stark, Tony's parents, who plays the mythical superhero Iron Man. That is, Black Widow could be the investigator of this whole plot that involved SHIELD.

This is because, according to what Cultura Ocio mentions , Kevin Feige also clarified that this film will be located after the events of that film. That is, it will not be a prequel so overdue, so the formation of the Avengers will be present within the events of the film, although that does not necessarily imply that we see the superheroes in action.

However, there are also some rumors regarding the appearance of some figures from the Marvel franchise. In particular, El Comercio highlights that Iron Man could appear in this film, since Robert Downey Jr. is on the cast list. This could happen because this superhero also died in Avengers: Endgame, which is why a double farewell could be given.

At the same time, this story would make something clear to us: while Black Widow is dead, a character who will be introduced here could take her place. From La Voz de Durango they highlight that the actress Florence Pugh will be the replacement for Scarlett Johansson, because she will play Yelena Belova, a character who will have abilities similar to those of the protagonist of this film.

The actress also highlighted, according to what the Vanidades media collects, that Black Widow is "a film about the abuse of women." The British man mentioned that it deals with girls who are kidnapped all over the world, so women could perceive it as something painful, although there will also be a strong female power in the plot.

Therefore, despite the fact that people expected an "origin story", the idea is to show the woman at an intermediate point, by also explaining her roots. This leads to the first of Phase 4 of the MCU For now, we will have to wait to see how events unfold, but there is much expectation for Marvel's return to the movies.
