BLACK WIDOW MARVEL. Marvel fans are certainly asking the question: do we have to wait until the end of the credits of Black Widow to discover a new scene? The answer.
[Mis à jour le 7 juillet 2021 à 11h00] Marvel fans have been looking forward to this day. Black Widow, the last film in the superhero franchise, has finally been released in France in theaters. Worn by Scarlett Johansson, the blockbuster returns for the first time to the past and origins of Natasha Romanoff. The opportunity for fans to discover the heroine’s family, made up of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Melina Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei Shostakov, aka the Red Guardian (David Harbor).
As with many Marvel movies in the past, fans are sure to wait until the end of the credits, wondering about a possible final scene after the traditional scrolling of names of people who participated in the film. And know that the wait will not be in vain: Black Widow does have a post-credits scene that heralds the future of Marvel … Fans to discover it and make their own theories now that Black Widow is available in theaters.
Reviews are mixed on Black Widow. Some media, such as 20 minutes or Le Parisien, have been seduced by the feature film centered on the super-heroine Marvel. For 20 minutes, “Marvel looks set to reach adulthood in the movies,” citing the portrayal of a heroine “hurt, both psychologically and physically.” For CNews, the latest installment in the franchise follows the classic Marvel recipe, distinguishing itself with “a brilliant cast.” This “post- # MeToo” action film (Télérama) also won over critics, Le Figaro underlining the quality of “this assumed female blockbuster where women lead the way”.
The Parisian welcomes for his part the tributes made to spy and action films to give a film “successful both on the scenes of family dialogue and on its many action sequences”. For the farewell to the super-heroine, the emotion seems to be at the rendezvous for several critics, who note “a touching and funny reunion” (TV 7 days) and “an exploration of the origins of Black Widow as breathtaking as’ moving “.
But Black Widow is not unanimous. Many critics have deplored “a few lengths” (Le Journal du Dimanche) or worse, a phrase that “smells a little warm” (Le Journal du Geek). For Ecran Large, Black Widow “replenishes a lukewarm and tasteless soup in the form of compilation of the worst Marvel”, lamenting “sad farewell for a character too often abused”. Delighted to find a big show on the big screen, Première is no more enthusiastic than that: “Yes, it’s not bad, it’s nice, it even feels a little good, but it’s not as big than it would like to be “. Now it’s up to Marvel fans to make up their own minds.
In Black Widow, available in French theaters on July 7, 2021, the public will finally discover its past and its origins. The last time Natasha Romanoff appeared on screen, it was in Avengers: Endgame, in 2019. The Black Widow sacrifices herself and dies to allow the superheroes to retrieve the Soul Stone on Vormir. Yet Black Widow sees the return of the heroine. The film is indeed not a sequel, but a prequel. The plot sits right between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, before Thanos arrives on Earth to wipe out half of the universe’s population.
As a reminder, after Captain America: Civil War (2016), the Sokovia Accords are promulgated to regulate the activities of the superheroes of the Shield and the Avengers. The team of heroes splits into two camps: those who refuse to sign, like Hawkeye, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, Wanda Maximoff or Ant-Man are imprisoned, Captain America is on the run. Conversely, Tony Stark / Iron Man, Vision and James Rhodes / War Machine agree to sign the treaty to guarantee peace. At the same time, on Asgard’s side, Thor fights the Ragnarok alongside the Hulk. The two heroes are not involved in the conflict. For her part, Natasha Romanoff initially supports the Sokovia agreements, before letting Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes escape. Considered a traitor, the Russian superheroine is forced to flee. It is after these events that the action of Black Widow begins.
Is Black Widow Natasha Romanoff’s last lap? Definitely, if the finale of Avengers: Endgame is to be believed. As a reminder, this first film starring the super-heroine Marvel takes place shortly before the attack on Thanos in Infinity War and after the disastrous fate of the heroine in Endgame. The opportunity to finally discover the past and the family of the heroine played by Scarlett Johansson on the big screen before her death in Endgame, the character sacrificing himself to recover the Stone of the Soul and put an end to Thanos’ plans.
The actress confirmed that it was certainly the last time she donned the Black Widow costume: “It feels good to leave a party when it is still in full swing, she told CBM media. Even if it remains a twinge of heart to say goodbye, if you love something, you have to know how to give it back your freedom. ” However, Marvel boss Kevin Feige cast doubt on the heroine’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in an interview with ET: “I’d love to continue working with [Scarlett Johansson] anyway, if we have that chance in the future. ”This could mean that the actress hasn’t completely closed the door to the MCU, or that she could work as a producer of other films at the future, as she may have done on Black Widow.

Why do you think this farewell to Black Widow was necessary?
She is such a popular character … The public wanted to know more about her, when she died, many said to themselves that we did not know enough about her. We wanted to dissect who she was. She feels ashamed of her actions, she felt like she had not done “enough” in her life. So we wanted to show that yes, she made mistakes, but she also brought so many beautiful things to the world. I think this is a great lesson for all of us. And it was also important for all of us that the film could speak to women, especially for Scarlett. [Johansson] : She wanted this film to be for female Marvel fans.
Natasha Romanoff died in Avengers: Endgame. Was it time to tell her story?
I didn’t think about it that way. I thought about what was interesting about this character, and what could be exciting to explore with this movie. We reflected on the events of Avengers: Endgame in relation to her spirituality, her soul, and how she had to need an ending before that.
What did you seek to explore in this character that the public had not yet seen?
His humanity I think. Every time we’ve seen her in the past, she was a supporting role to a male main cast, so we wanted to bring out her contradictions, her specific aspects that make her what she is and what she wants. She was created as a femme fatale, she was created to please others, rather than being a character in her own right.
Did you feel a form of pressure at the idea of making a film so eagerly awaited by viewers?
I was totally relaxed (laughs). Of course there was a lot of pressure, but I had a great team and I had a lot of fun.
You introduce the character of Yelena in Black Widow, which has garnered a lot of very positive reactions: did you expect such a return?
I knew the audience would react positively to Yelena. I knew she would even if she just went to the supermarket to buy milk. She’s a good character and a good actress who brings a lot of joy to this film.
If the opportunity ever presented itself, would you make another Marvel movie?
I am very busy in my life so I don’t know what might be going on.
