Kevin Feige Says ‘Black Widow’ Prequel Will Answer Unexpected MCU Questions

Kevin Feige recently shared that the upcoming Black Widow prequel will answer MCU questions you never thought to ask.

Despite no official slate announcement from Marvel Studios, it is well known that a Black Widow solo film is coming and is currently filming. Little is known about Black Widow, but the character died in Avengers: Endgame, leaving many to assume that the solo film will be a prequel. While speaking to iO9, Kevin Feige confirmed that the Black Widow film will indeed be a prequel and teased there will still be lots of MCU surprises in store:

“There’s a method to the madness. There’s always a method and doing things in an unexpected way is something we find fun. There are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn’t necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before.”

Over the years, prequels have been hit or miss, but Kevin Feige compared Black Widow to a recently successful one:

“I look at Better Call Saul as a wonderful example of a prequel that almost completely stands on its own apart from Breaking Bad because it informs you about so many things you didn’t know about before. So time will tell which way we’ve gone with a supposed Black Widow movie.”

What kind of MCU surprises do you think will be in the film? Sound off in the comments below!

Directed by By Cate Shortland from a script written by Ned Benson and Jac Schaeffer, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, and O-T Fagbenle. The Favourite star Rachel Weisz is reportedly circling a “key role” in the film.

Things We’d Love To See In The ‘Black Widow’ Movie

With Jac Schaeffer being hired to write the script for a solo Black Widow movie, it seems Marvel may finally be moving forward with this long-awaited spin-off. Of course, the development of the project will most likely depend on what Schaeffer comes up with but fans have been petitioning for a Black Widow movie for years.

Scarlett Johannsson has been portraying the famous character for nearly eight years now, since first being introduced in 2010’s Iron Man 2. With a lot of backstory hinted at in her other Marvel Cinematic Universe appearances, it is unclear whether the Black Widow movie will be an origin story or whether it will follow the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

Either way, we’ve chosen ten things we’d love to see in the Black Widow movie. Hit Next to read on.
