After a for much longer than anticipated wait, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has returned to the large display with “Black Widow.” It’s laborious to consider it’s been two years for the reason that launch of “Spider-Man: Far From Home” — 2019 seems like each a lifetime in the past and simply yesterday — however the Marvel juggernaut is as soon as once more in full swing in theaters and on Disney+.
And meaning post-credits scenes, proper? Those bonus scenes throughout and/or after the credit have been a staple of the MCU for the reason that very starting, with “Avengers: Endgame” being the one film to not have one. And even the Disney+ collection have been getting in on that apply.
“Black Widow” is just not an exception. At the very finish of the credit is a tease for a future MCU factor: In this case, it’s the “Hawkeye” collection that’s coming to Disney+ later this 12 months.
The remainder of this put up will focus on the content material of the bonus scene. Which is to say there shall be spoilers.
In the epilogue earlier than the credit, set two weeks after they introduced down the Red Room, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) lastly will get that quinjet she’d been asking her buddy for the entire film. This is sort of actually the identical quinjet she flew round with Captain America and Falcon throughout “Avengers: Infinity War,” in order that’s a pleasant little nod.
If you, like everybody else, are questioning why Natasha wasn’t in jail, nicely, we don’t have a solution for you. Director Cate Shortland advised TheWrap that the film is being deliberately obtuse about that. One assumes meaning we’ll get these particulars another time. But sadly, the post-credits scene doesn’t shed any gentle on this.
The post-credits scene does, nevertheless, stay up for Florence Pugh’s future within the MCU as Yelena. We’ve warped forward in time to the post-“Endgame” current, and we see her visiting Natasha’s headstone in a cemetery — however she’s not alone for lengthy. Enter Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Valentina, who we first met throughout “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
As we noticed there, Valentina is recruiting. For what goal, we don’t know, however clearly her motives are suspect if she’s grabbing a knockoff Captain America and mendacity to Yelena proper off the bat.
See, Valentina pulls in Yelena by providing to assist her get the person chargeable for Natasha’s dying: Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye. And Black Widow’s greatest buddy.
Now, we know that Clint tried to sacrifice himself for the Soul Stone particularly so Natasha wouldn’t need to — in that approach, he’s maybe much less chargeable for her dying than anybody else within the universe.
So Valentina is clearly untrustworthy, however we’ll have to attend a bit longer to seek out out what she’s really attempting to do right here.
The undeniable fact that Marvel is utilizing “Black Widow” to tease one of many TV reveals is fairly attention-grabbing, and proves that they are surely dedicated to having the movies and collection work together forwards and backwards in an actual approach — versus how the earlier MCU reveals solely ever bought one single significant reference throughout all the films. Expect extra of this as we get extra MCU motion pictures.
