Scarlett Johansson Confirms ‘Black Widow’ Is Set After Captain America: Civil War

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is confirmed to take place after the events of Captain America: Civil War.

Marvel Studios’ Black Widow will finally put Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff in the spotlight as the lead character, ten years after the character debuted in Iron Man 2. However, the death of Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff raised a lot of questions regarding Black Widow‘s place in the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter’s recent interview with Scarlett Johansson confirms reports of Black Widow taking place after Captain America: Civil War, which concluded with Natasha Romanoff being forced into hiding after aiding a fugitive Steve Rogers. However, Scarlett Johansson noted that Black Widow will still explore certain aspects of Natasha’s past before long before the Avengers fell apart in Captain America: Civil War:

“I know her better than anybody. What was her childhood like? What is her relationship to figures of authority? This character is gritty and multi-dimensional but has a lot of trauma and has led an unexamined life. In order to operate at this elite level, she has probably had to push away a lot of stuff.”

Full plot details on Marvel Studios’ Black Widow are currently under wraps, though it has been revealed that the film is set after the events of Civil War and will see Scarlett Johansson’s Nathasha Romanoff take on the villainous Taskmaster. The film will also mark the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Yelena Belova, the second modern-era character to use the Black Widow title in the comics.

Directed by Cate Shortland from a script written by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, Black Widowstars Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olivier Richters, and Rachel Weisz.

Black Widow will be released in theaters on May 1, 2020.
