‘Black Widow’ Post-Credits Scene: What It Means For Marvel’s Future
The following post contains SPOILERS for Black Widow. In fact, it’s almost all spoilers. The whole thing. This sentence you’re reading right now is a spoiler. Sorry.
You know how Black Widow ends: Black Widow dies. Or, rather, she already died, retrieving the Soul Stone in Avengers: Endgame. Almost all of Black Widow takes place before those events, revealing a previously untold adventure that Natasha went on between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. The only scene set after Natasha’s death comes during the closing credits. For the purposes of Marvel fans wondering where things are headed in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that’s the most important part, because it’s the only one that teases future movies and shows.
Exactly what that scene means and what it could be leading to is the subject of our new Black Widow video. In it, we break down the characters in the post-credits scene, what they’re doing, and what their alliance could mean for the Hawkeye TV series, and the rest of the upcoming MCU. Watch it below:
