It seems that production for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow has been pushed back according to a recent report from Pursue News.
The Black Widow movie was expected to start filming sometime this month but, according to the report, principal photography will start in the United Kingdom in June and its expected to be finished by September.
This news comes as no surprise at all since Marvel Studios and president Kevin Feige may have a lot on their plate before August. With Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home releasing between March and July, the Disney/FOX merger still wrapping up with no official news of how characters like the X-Men or Deadpool will specifically be handled in the future and no official statements on the line-up for the next MCU movies coming up, Feige and his team could use the time being to sort out how the Black Widow film really fits in their plans.
Even though Marvel fans want the movie to happen, some have already stated that it may be happening a little bit too late. Scarlett Johanson’s Natasha Romanoff has been around since Iron Man 2 secretly working for Tony Stark as a spy for Nicky Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. In Avengers she became part of the team and, since then, her character has evolved from being a reformed assassin to somewhat of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ conscience. Her story arc during these films seems to be explained well enough for her to need a solo movie at this point, but the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame could show us a different and more exciting future for the former spy.
It’s more than likely that the role of Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow will be reprised by Scarlett Johansson but there’s still no news on who might star alongside her. The plot of the film hasn’t been revealed yet either although there have been rumors that it will be R rated. Next time we’ll see Natasha Romanoff will be in Avengers: Endgame in April.

Here’s Every Hero Who Appears In The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe’s population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos’ decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.
Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.
The First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos’ decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans’ contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she’s been assessing the consequences of Thanos’ actions. Standing by Captain America’s side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.
Although Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can’t fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.
Nebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos’ wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos’ and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.
The new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.
After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers’ front door.
While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos’ decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
