(Warning: We’re going to debate the very finish of “Black Widow” right here. So if you happen to don’t need any spoilers for the top of the film, you most likely don’t need to learn this)
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 taking part in the sidekick. Scarlett Johansson has performed a major function (not cameos) in eight MCU motion pictures, 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” motion pictures to headline. Natasha has been the center of the MCU as a utility participant, primarily.
“Black Widow” picks up proper after “Captain America: Civil War” when Natasha is on the run — clearly, she died in “Avengers: Endgame,” and so it needed to happen earlier than that. During the movie, she reunites together with her previous “The Americans”-style former spy household, goes on an enormous journey to take down the Red Room — the place the place she put by all kinds of atrocities as a toddler — after which on the finish of the film escapes by some means from the grasp of General Ross (William Hurt) 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 short “two weeks later” epilogue scene through which Natasha’s smuggler pal items her a quinjet.
How did she get away? We don’t know, you don’t know, and “Black Widow” director Cate Shortland doesn’t know. Here’s what she informed us after we requested her about this complicated scene.
“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 informed 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’d 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” can be very previous 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 appear to be a subject that can have a lot purpose to come back up. But it’s one thing that Clint would most likely find yourself understanding about, so if there’s anyplace 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 reasonably 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 question one thing that the remnants of SHIELD would need both approach.
But we don’t know. Hopefully we received’t have to attend lengthy to seek out out. But in the intervening time, it’ll be way more enjoyable to interrupt down the post-credits scene, which options an look by a new-ish character who seems to be to be fairly necessary to the large image of the MCU.
