For months we have been wondering about the temporal setting of Black Widow, and now that we know that the film will be a sequel to Captain America: Civil War, screenwriter Jac Schaeffer has revealed some interesting details regarding the new chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
During the presentation in Hall H at the Comic-Con 2019 in San Diego, the exclusive previewed movie made it clear that the film had to do with the “Budapest mission” often cited by Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton, but it would also have been set even after the events of the battle of Berlin seen in the Russian film.
Schaeffer, in an interview with Inverse, said that only part of the film will take place after Civil War and that Natasha will ” have to deal with some problems of her past “.
In practice, there is a good chance that the film has a sort of “structure to the Lost” and develops on two different temporal levels. Before Black Widow was officially announced, in fact, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had declared: ” There is a method also for madness. There are always different ways to do things, and we like to do them in an unexpected way. are different ways to make a prequel movie, one that answers questions that you don’t necessarily ask yourself, one that explains things you’ve never known before“.
In short, it is very likely that the film on Natasha is something that no one expects, despite the many information that is emerging these days.
