A recent post online may have revealed the plot synopsis for Marvel’s upcoming Black Widow solo movie.
Fans have been wanting to see Scarlett Johansson play Black Widow in a solo film since her first appearance in Iron Man 2. Her awesome fighting style and personality have made her a fan-favorite MCU character for almost a decade. It seems that the former Russian spy is finally getting her own solo movie which, according to a recently leaked plot synopsis, will be both a prequel and a present-day story intertwined.
A character like Black Widow lends herself to numerous types of stories to explore. She has a very dark past as a Russian spy that would make very a great origin story, or you could do a Mission: Impossible type of spy action film. We’ve seen Black Widow do everything from fight in the streets to riding alien ships in The Avengers, so tonally she could be taken in any direction. A new plot synopsis for Black Widow suggests that the film will be a mix of a few different times in Widow’s life. Check it out below along with an image of the whole production listing.
“At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kell her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is a freelance operative. The standalone film will find Romanoff living in the United States 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union.”
The story seems to be covering a majority of the character’s life, so it will be interesting how Marvel is able to cram it into a two-hour runtime. Because it seems to take place almost entirely before Iron Man 2, the plot still leaves the character’s Avengers 4 survival in question. Though she survived the finale of Infinity War, next year’s follow-up is most likely to have some heavy gut punches of its own.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Black Widow as more information becomes available. Hopefully, we’ll see the OG Avenger make it past the end of Avengers 4 but all of that will be answered when the film finally hits theaters next May.
