Black Widow was recently delayed due to COVID-19 concerns, and the movie is now set to be released in Eternals‘ November slot. That’s obviously disappointing, but it’s good that it finally has a release date, and we now just have to hope that it’s able to meet it as planned despite current world events.
During an interview with Total Film Magazine (via Screen Rant), Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige dropped more hints about what fans can expect from the first Phase 4 movie, and pointed to it filling in some gaps in the Infinity Saga’s storied history…specifically those between films!
Acknowledging that they have “hinted at [Natasha Romanoff’s backstory] throughout all the other films,” he promised that “we approach it in a completely unexpected way” in Black Widow. He even explained that, “She’s been up to a lot all along – in between when we see her in the other movies – some of which will be surprising to people.”
The events surrounding Iron Man 2 seem likely, of course, but Black Widow must have also done a lot in the time between Captain America: The Winter Soldier (where she exposed many of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s secrets to the world) and Avengers: Age of Ultron. It seems we’ll just have to wait and see for now.
