A new video from the set of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow film could reveal the movie is set after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
Production on Marvel Studios’ Black Widow film is currently underway and a new video from one of the shooting locations offers the latest look at Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff. Of course, the Black Widow film was widely believed to be a prequel but the latest set video and photos have prompted some to speculate that the film will also be set in between the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
The theory is at least partly based on the fact that Scarlett Johansson’s hairstyle and the color is the same as Black Widow’s in Avengers: Endgame, which jumps ahead five years after Thanos’ decimation early in the film, leaving a vast amount of time in lives of the Infinity War survivors unexplored. Fans can check out the set video featured below to see Scarlett Johansson’s hairstyle and determine whether or not they think the film is set after Avengers: Infinity War.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
