  • The film will take place after The Avengers.[29] and showcase the character's origins in a flashback similar to The Incredible Hulk.
  • The film may in fact take place before The Avengers and showcase the character's origins similar to Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.[24][30]
  • The Budapest story from The Avengers will appear.[24][31]
  • The film will be a Red Sparrow-styled prequel, where it will be set 15 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, set in the Year 2006.[32]
  • The plot will include the Y2K virus which everyone was fretting about back in 1999 before it quickly became apparent that hitting 2000 was no big deal.[33]
  • CONFIRMED: The film will take place after Captain America: Civil War.[34]
  • The film will be a start of a franchise.[35]
  • Following CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is lured back to Budapest and reunites with her “sister” Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh). The Red Room Program created by Natasha’s surrogate father, General Ivan Petrovich, trained them both to become Black Widows. The Red Room is now led by Melina Vostokoff, another operative who is abducting young women to turn them into a new generation of Black Widows. Natasha and Yelena set out to stop her, aided by Natasha’s old lover Rick Mason, a fixer for international spies who previously worked for SHIELD. Natasha and Yelena are pursued by Taskmaster, a mercenary affiliated with Vostokoff, who is capable of mimicking his opponents’ fighting patterns. To face him, Natasha and Yelena recruit their “brother” Alexei Shostakov, a boisterous, drunken supersoldier originally meant to be the Red Guardian, the Russian counterpart to Captain America. Action scenes include Natasha and Yelena fighting in a rundown apartment; Natasha and Yelena fleeing on a motorcycle while Taskmaster chases them in an armored tank; Natasha and Yelena breaking Alexei out of a gulag; and Natasha infiltrating the Red Room headquarters and fighting Vostokoff in a laboratory. Flashbacks chronicle Natasha's childhood, training, escape and eventual recruitment by SHIELD.[17]
  • Suits include the standard suit, a white stealth suit for snowy environment and a reinforced combat suit.[17]
  • The main plot twist is that Mason is Taskmaster.[17]
  • Movie ends with Natasha reconnecting with Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson.[17]
  • Movie sets up Yelena as the new Black Widow in the MCU. She is more morally ambiguous than Natasha, setting up a new dynamic.[17]
  • Starts right after Civil War, meant to fit perfectly into rewatch chronology. There's a lot of fleshing out parts of the MCU you didn't know need fleshed out. Like Winter Soldier in that regard. Ties into Ant Man and the Wasp in a surprising way.[27]
  • There are flashbacks to Nat's past lots of Red Room stuff with young her Yelena, Melina and Alexei. They all have trauma from their past and it's what bonds them

Drive of the plot is stopping Melina from reactivating the Black Widow program and ruining the lives of more young women, and Nat getting this device that is basically like the "blocking" system in Black Mirror and will make her Cap and Falcon impossible to track. The movie is very dark, very John Wick, and very much an obvious (sometimes heavy handed) passing of the torch to Yelena. Yelena will be a new status quo of a Black Widow who is the most ruthless MCU hero yet and it's questionable whether she will stay good or bad Natasha realizes through the events of this movie how important the family she gained in the Avengers is. And that's why she goes back to Cap and Sam at the end.[27]
