10 black widow solo fan fan theories

With the release of Avengers: Finale and Spider-Man: Away from Home, the Infinity Saga and the third phase of the MCU have come to an end. Many of our favorite Marvel characters have undergone tremendous changes in their storylines, some will develop, others will never return. One of the biggest victims was Natasha Romanoff, who gave her soul for the Soul Stone. Of course, this was a noble act, but he questioned the plot of the solo film “Black Widow”, which was supposed to be released during the fourth phase. The past of the Black Widow is as mysterious as she is; many dangers, tricks and secrets are hidden in him. Given the events of the Final, many suspect that her solo album will be a prequel, while others suggest that the scriptwriters will go to great lengths to bring her back from the World of Souls and that in fact she is Skrull’s secret agent. Here are 10 fan theories, from logical to truly strange, about the possible plot of the movie “Black Widow” 10. The program “Widow” Many assume that the solo album “Black Widow” will be a prequel dedicated to the life of Natasha before her joining the Avengers. According to the comics, Natasha Romanoff was taken along with dozens of other orphaned girls, and they became part of the Black Widow Ops program. Natasha, like the others, sacrificed her former identity to learn how to become an extra-class killer in the Red Room, the secret training center of the Soviet Union. The program was developed during the Cold War following the success of the Winter Soldier program. Natasha was injected with the same serum as Captain America, in order to create the perfect female spy. Given the fate of Natasha in the “Final”, this version is quite acceptable. 9. Her past with Hawkeye Although much has not been revealed at the MCU, it is clear that Hawkeye and the Black Widow have a rich history. In the comics, they were assignment partners, platonic friends, lovers, and ex-bride and groom. The MCU chose to leave them friends, and bring Natasha with other candidates, such as Captain America and Bruce Banner, and marry Clint Burton. The film “Black Widow” could deeply study the relationship of Natasha with the shooter, especially since many comics emphasize that they have a lot in common. Both have a difficult past related to the abuse of power by certain individuals. She gained redemption by serving in the Shch.I.T. This definitely added emotional intensity to their collaborative scenes in the Final. 8. Ivan Petrovich In some variations of the background of the Black Widow, after her parents died in a fire, she became an KGB operative. According to other versions, she was adopted by Ivan Petrovich, who replaced her father and mentor (until she had to kill him, because he became obsessed with her). In the Final, when she with Falcon Eye comes to Wormyr behind the Soul Stone, the Red Skull calls her “Natasha Romanoff, daughter of Ivan.” Clint seems surprised to hear the name of her father, whom she, according to her, did not know. It is understood that the Red Skull was referring to her adoptive father, which we can learn more about in the upcoming film. 7. This is a psychological thriller Given that the Black Widow comics are heavily focused on espionage, it would be logical if the film turned out to be a tense psychological spy thriller in the style of the Manchurian Candidate, Mission Impossible, or Black Swan. It may be dedicated to the tasks of the Black Widow, who turned her into one of the most efficient killing machines in the world. What about an unexpected plot twist and placement in the World of Souls? She might even meet in limb with Gamora, who was sacrificed by Thanos. Perhaps they will unite and find a way to get out, but for this they will have to go through real hell. 6. She fights with the Red Skull. Even if the Black Widow somehow regains consciousness in the World of Souls, even if she finds Gamora and they unite to escape, the Red Skull will be waiting for them on the other side. Who knows what the scale of his cosmic power is and whether Natasha can repulse him in her current state? Other powerful creatures are imprisoned in the World of Souls (for example, the Magus), perhaps she will fight the Red Skull using their abilities. Although the Finals explicitly stated that the Black Widow could not be resurrected, strange things were happening in the Marvel universe. 5. The Soul Stone has returned, and it is with it In the “Final”, Captain America, together with the Pima Particles, goes to the past to return all six Infinity Stones to the correct timelines. One of his “stops” should be Wormyr, where he will return the Soul Stone to his guardian, the Red Skull. If this happens, doesn’t Natasha come to life? It was said that Natasha from this timeline cannot return to the current one (where Thanos won and the Avengers must cancel it), because it will affect Clint’s timeline: it may come out so that he doesn’t reunite with his family (or this, or in the timeline in which the Avengers defeated, another Thanos appears).
