Natasha Romanoff is an important character for Marvel fans as a tribute to their fallen hero who gave her life to help secure the soul stone and ultimately bring about Thanos' defeat in the Avengers Endgame. When Tony Stark, the Iron Man, snapped the previously dusted characters back to life, it was confirmed by Bruce Banner later that The Black Widow was gone for good and didn’t return with those who had previously turned to dust.
This movie explores the early life of the Russian-born secret agent who worked with Shield as an Avenger. Natasha was handed over to a Russian spy group, the KGB, upon her birth and trained to become one of the best spy assassins in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the Soviet Union was broken up, she escaped Russia to save herself from its government that was trying to kill her. No one from the KGB has an uninteresting past, and there are many secret things to be revealed in this movie.
It’s an opportunity for fans to really know the marvel character, Natasha Romanoff, and understand her life up until her death. For those who mourn the demise of their favorite character, the movie offers an opportunity to really connect with the late Avenger's life. This could be marvel’s way of giving their greatest spy a befitting eulogy and, of course, introduce other Marvel comic characters who would never come up without this story, like the Red Guardian, who is just a Russian Captain America.
No one can easily escape from the KGB without having that part of their past haunt them. As we plunge into the past in this movie, we get to explore the messy parts of Natasha’s life as a spy arising from a huge conspiracy that originates from her past encounters and relationships. Her life between the Avengers Civil War and the Endgame, and even long before she joined the Avengers, holds a lot of drama, grudges, enemies, and so much more.
We certainly don’t know everything about Natasha; we get to see the type of relationship between herself and her sister, whom we never knew about; we see that there was a whole other family before Shield and the Avengers, and Natasha is done running from her past; but are we as ready as she is to embrace it? On July 9, 2021, Black Widow will be out in theaters for everyone to see. It’s not a movie that anyone should miss.
Scarlet Johansson has been playing the Black Widow for quite some time now. It’s unclear if we’ll be seeing her again after this movie. The actress said the movie showed her as a woman who came into her own and made independent and active choices for herself. A solo movie for the Black Widow seems like something that we would long have expected to surface, seeing as she has been a core part of the Avengers movies for quite some time.
