(This article, naturally, incorporates spoilers for “Black Widow”)
Like nearly each earlier film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Black Widow” has a post-credits scene, and it’s form of a doozy — it’s the primary time Marvel used considered one of these to tease considered one of its TV exhibits.
The post-credits scene begins with Yelena (Florence Pugh because the heir-apparent to the Black Widow mantle) paying a go to to Natasha Romanoff’s grave. We’ve had a few seven-year time leap from the remainder of the film as we catch as much as the current. Yelena’s try to pay respects to her spy sister are interrupted, nonetheless, by Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.
Originally, this scene would have been her massive entrance onto the MCU stage a la Samuel L. Jackson within the first “Iron Man” film. But the pandemic compelled Marvel to begin up the Disney+ exhibits sooner than deliberate, and so on this timeline we’ve beforehand met this character, Valentina, in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
On that present, Valentina’s presence was very shocking to these she spoke with, however she and Yelena clearly have a working relationship within the current — or a minimum of the current previous. “You’re not supposed to bother me on my holiday time, Valentina,” Yelena tells her. “I want a raise.”
That’s when issues get very fascinating.
“I’ve got your next target. Thought I’d hand deliver it,” Valentina says. “Maybe you’d like a shot at the man responsible for for your sister’s death.”
As she says that, she arms Yelena a pill with an image of Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye.
Obviously, we all know that Clint was not in any method liable for Black Widow’s demise. Really, he was the one particular person in the entire multiverse who truly tried to forestall it, which technically makes him the least liable for it amongst all of the individuals who knew her.
But Yelena wouldn’t know all these particulars, since that entire factor with the Soul Stone occurred method over within the Kree galaxy, and Hawkeye himself is the one witness.
This scene is clearly a tease for the “Hawkeye” sequence on Disney+ coming later this yr. Marvel has already introduced that Pugh might be in that present, and now it seems to be prefer it’s gonna be a kind of tales the place two protagonists duke it out till they notice they’ve a mutual enemy they should crew up in opposition to. Or perhaps Yelena goes to be a villain transferring ahead within the MCU.
For these of you who’ve watched “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” this scene invitations one other massive query: are we gonna see Yelena crew up with US Agent, aka Wyatt Russell’s knockoff Captain America? Valentina recruited him on the finish of that present for one thing, however Russell has not been introduced for “Hawkeye.” That one thing might be one thing else, and I wouldn’t count on any team-ups with Valentina’s budding crew till the group is rounded out with a pair extra characters.
But something is feasible within the new MCU, or a minimum of that’s the impression that Kevin Feige and co. are attempting to create right here. So by no means say by no means.
“Black Widow” is out now in theaters and on Disney+.
