(This article comprises spoilers for the literal ending of “Black Widow.” So in case you don’t wish to know concerning the finish of the film, then you shouldn’t learn this text)
At lengthy final, Natasha Romanoff has gotten her personal film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in theaters and on Disney+, after greater than a decade of enjoying the sidekick. Scarlett Johansson has performed a major function (not cameos) in eight MCU films, together with “Black Widow,” which is a mark that solely Robert Downey Jr. can match — and he had the benefit of getting three “Iron Man” films to headline.
Since Natasha died in “Avengers: Endgame,” “Black Widow” in fact takes place earlier than that movie. It picks up instantly after the occasions of “Captain America: Civil War,” with Natasha on the run after the Avengers wrecked that airport in Germany. She reunites along with her outdated “The Americans”-style former spy household, goes on an enormous journey to take down the Red Room, after which escapes General Ross and his military cronies as soon as extra and heads out to assist Steve Rogers break all the opposite members of #TeamCap out of jail.
But it’s not a clear escape. “Black Widow” ends with Natasha standing amid the wreckage of the Red Room, her household and the opposite Widows safely away as black authorities SUVs strategy. Then the film cuts to black, earlier than giving us a quick “two weeks later” epilogue scene wherein Natasha’s smuggler pal items her a quinjet.
How did she get away? There will not be, so far as we all know, a solution to this query. Here’s what “Black Widow” director Cate Shortland mentioned after we requested her about that.
“That was intentional, because we wanted to leave the question of how she would get away, rather than allow the audience to get exhausted by another fight,” director Cate Shortland advised TheWrap.
“We wanted to leave you guys on a high with the question of how did she use her ingenuity? Because she did. And it was probably, I would say, she bargained her way out of that situation. But I don’t know.”
What we might usually take away from that is that we’ll discover out what occurred there in a later film. Perhaps after we meet up with Yelena (Florence Pugh) within the “Hawkeye” present on Disney+. But for the reason that occasions of “Black Widow” will likely be very outdated information within the current narrative — it takes place about seven years earlier than “Avengers: Endgame,” (when the f-year time skip occurred) — it doesn’t look like a subject that may have a lot motive to return up. But it’s one thing that Clint would most likely find yourself understanding about, so if there’s anywhere the place this complete deal may get cleared up, it’s on “Hawkeye.”
Otherwise, our greatest guess is that Natasha supplied that thoughts management antidote as a commerce, although it’s not clear how a lot use General Ross and co. would have for it, since that is the primary time within the MCU we’ve seen this particular type of management. Yelena takes nice pains to level out that Natasha had undergone psychological conditioning quite than chemical thoughts management — Bucky likewise was managed by Hydra utilizing psychological conditioning, so we wouldn’t suppose he would profit from it. But it’s little doubt one thing that the remnants of SHIELD would need both method.
But we don’t know. Hopefully we gained’t have to attend lengthy to search out out. But in the intervening time, it’ll be far more enjoyable to interrupt down the post-credits scene, which options an look by a new-ish character who appears to be fairly essential to the large image of the MCU.
