Black Widow — Scarlett Johansson’s solo journey, now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar — inevitably has a scene through the credit, as is the case with practically each Marvel Cinematic Universe film. The lone exception so far is the studio’s greatest film of all time, Avengers: Endgame, which additionally noticed the loss of life of Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff. For exactly that motive, Black Widow‘s post-credits scene would not contain Natasha within the flesh. As an alternative, it focuses on a associated character — and brings in one other character from a Disney+ sequence. Naturally, Black Widow‘s ultimate scene is tied to the MCU’s future.
Black Widow ending, defined
After the high-flying climactic act that ends with Dreykov’s floating dwelling crashing to the bottom, Natasha bids goodbye to her “household” — her “youthful sister” Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), her “father” Alexei Shostakov (David Harbour), and her “mom” Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) — as the federal government forces arrive. The three of them go away with Antonia Dreykov/ Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) and all the opposite Widows whose minds have been free of the chemical agent that was utilized by the villain Dreykov for everybody within the Crimson Room, following Natasha’s defection to S.H.I.E.L.D.
A few weeks later, Natasha meets up together with her fixer Rick Mason (O-T Fagbenle) who provides her with the Quinjet that was utilized by Steve Rogers/ Captain America (Chris Evans) to free the imprisoned Avengers on the finish of Captain America: Civil Conflict. That closes out Natasha’s standalone journey — this may lead into the occasions of Avengers: Infinity Conflict and Endgame.
Black Widow post-credits scene, defined
Black Widow‘s post-credits scene picks up following Endgame, with Yelena again in Ohio the place she lived as a child, as we noticed at first of Black Widow. She has a canine together with her and she or he is visiting Natasha’s grave. It isn’t the funeral that followers had demanded within the wake of Endgame, nevertheless it positively seems like a response to that. “Daughter, Sister, Avenger,” her tombstone reads. The grieving Yelena bends down, grabs the tombstone, and whistles — identical to they did as youngsters. Yelena’s second of quiet is rudely interrupted by somebody simply then, who’s blowing her nostril.
Seems it is Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the mysterious lady whom we first met within the Disney+ sequence The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. (It was then revealed that Louis-Dreyfus could be a part of Black Widow, so followers who’ve been intently following the information had been ready all film for her arrival.) Valentina apologises for her behaviour, claiming she’s allergic to the Midwest. Ohio is a part of Midwestern US. Valentina then provides: “What this lady [Natasha] did, actually, I am unable to even think about.”
“You are not purported to be bothering me on my vacation time, Valentina,” Yelena says in response, confirming that the 2 already know one another. “I am simply right here paying my respects,” Valentina says to placate her. Yelena is not shopping for that and says, “You realize, coming right here makes you look determined. I need a increase,” which means that she has been working for Valentina. Much like how she recruited US Agent. Louis-Dreyfus chuckles earlier than noting that she has her “subsequent goal.” Handing Yelena an iPad, Valentina provides: “Possibly you want a shot on the man accountable for your sister’s loss of life.”
Who’s on the iPad? It is Clint Barton/ Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). Wait, what now? Positive, Clint was with Natasha on Vormir in Endgame when she died, however how is Valentina spinning this absurd fabrication? Clearly, pretend information is an issue within the MCU too. However how lengthy does Valentina anticipate this lie to carry up? I might think about it’s going to take Clint two minutes to deliver up one thing he would not know if he wasn’t near Natasha. He may even argue that he provided to sacrifice himself in lieu of Natasha, although I do not suppose Yelena would obtain that nicely. (“It’s best to’ve accomplished a greater job,” Yelena would possibly retort.)
In any case, what this establishes is that Pugh can have a semi-antagonistic function on the upcoming sequence Hawkeye, led by Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, and premiering in late November on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar. We already knew about Pugh’s involvement on Hawkeye, so no surprises on that entrance, however now now we have a bit of extra path on what that entails. This isn’t the primary story although. Hawkeye is about Renner’s Clint passing the baton to Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop, simply as Black Widow did the identical from Natasha to Yelena.
Black Widow is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
