Marvel's BLACK WIDOW Film is Reportedly Set Between CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
Shortly after it was announced that Marvel was making a solo Black Widow, it was reported that the story would be set two years before the events of Iron Man. We have some new information to share with you today regarding the movie that reportedly came from Sebastian Stan during a comic convention in Italy.
According to CB, during a panel, Stan revealed that the movie will be set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. This hasn’t been confirmed by Marvel, but it would be an interest time frame to set it in.
If the movie is set after the events of Civil War, you’d think that Captain America or Falcon would show up because they seemed to be spending a lot of time together in that time. After all, these three characters had their own little Avengers team in the wake of the Sokovia Accords. But Black Widow could have split from the group at a certain point in those two years to embark on her own mission or adventure.
I don’t know, it seemed to make more sense that the story would be set prior to Iron Man. The new info contradicts the previously released description of it being an internationally-set story “centering on Natasha Romanoff, a spy and assassin who grew up being trained by the KGB before breaking from their grasp and becoming an agent of SHIELD and Avenger.” I guess we’ll see.
Cate Shortland is set to direct the movie and it will star Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh (Fighting With My Family) who will play the second female lead who has been described as a “kick ass female Bond” type character, and Rachel Weisz.
