despatched Natasha Romanoff on a long-awaited solo mission when the film (and its thrilling post-credits scene) hit theaters and on Friday. Director ‘s movie sees the superspy (Scarlett Johansson) confronting her shadowy previous.
That previous life contains fellow espionage brokers Yelena Belova, Melina Vostokoff and Alexei Shostakov (Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz and David Harbour), with whom she reunites.
The primary journey — seeand unanswered questions article for extra on that — jumps again to the interval simply after , however the post-credits scene takes place at a newer level within the timeline. Let’s check out some SPOILERS.
Someday after Natasha gave her life to get the Soul Stone and assist thwart Thanos’ dastardly plans in, Yelena takes her canine Fanny to go to her grave. That is presumably in Ohio (their shared childhood house) and the grave seems to be underneath a cherry blossom tree, identical to the tree that Dreykov stated Natasha’s organic mom was buried beside.
The phrases “Daughter, Sister, Avenger” are inscribed within the gravestone.
This quiet second is interrupted by Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who blows her nostril and says she’s allergic to the Midwest. Val has Yelena’s subsequent goal: Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye.
“Possibly you would like a shot on the man chargeable for your sister’s demise,” Val says, earlier than handing her a pill with Clint’s picture on it. “Type of a cutie, do not you assume?”
It looks as if thesimply bought its villain (or one among its villains, at the very least). We do not know why Val desires Clint useless, however he might be simply the primary goal in a plot to switch the Avengers along with her personal pawns.
Someday between the occasions of Black Widow and the interval after Avengers: Endgame, Yelena began working for Val — she bemoans Val exhibiting up throughout her “vacation time.” We beforehand noticed Val within theepisodes of Disney Plus present The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, when she recruited fallen Captain America John Walker and gave him the title US Agent.
Val stays a giant ol’ query mark. Within the comics, Val worked for SHIELD however was revealed to be a Russian sleeper agent. She additionally infiltrated Hydra for SHIELD and assumed the identification of Madame Hydra, however her true allegiance lay with the Russians (perhaps).
We do not but know who MCU Val is working for and what her plan is, however her comics historical past provides loads of choices. She might be serving to to revive Hydra or working for some clandestine extra-governmental group.

Given her recruitment of extremely skilled individuals who’ve had a tough time — Yelena spent years as a brainwashed killer and Walker misplaced the defend for— it is attainable Val is making an attempt to create an MCU equal of the comics’ Thunderbolts or Darkish Avengers. Each of those superteams had been made up of villains, unbeknownst to the world at massive.
It is doubtless Yelena will attempt to kill Clint solely briefly throughout his collection, in a traditional “heroes battle because of misunderstanding, then staff up” comic-style state of affairs, since he got here to blows with Natasha as he tried to die in her place — he and Yelena will in all probability find yourself mourning her loss collectively. The present (which may also) is scheduled to hit Disney Plus .
