Black Widow teaser

Looks pretty good. Average power level of characters being lower than the rest of the films should be interesting.

I know it's supposed to be set in the past, but I'd love it if it turned out that they had secretly undone her death in Endgame. It's not like people stay dead in the comics.
We don't know much about the Soulworld in MCU. Would be something if this was entirely a construction of the Soulworld and Natasha facing her past somehow helped her escape.

Honestly, though, I seriously doubt they'll do that. Really feels like this is more of an exploration of the character without building her into another ongoing story from here.

So, if this were a comic book, I'd be cool with that.

In the movies, though, I'm not sure why they'd do that - the Avengers, as she knew them, are done. She was solidly entrenched in the history of that group. Going forwards, there isn't a good hook to include her. So, what story are you going to tell that justifies resurrection?

I expect my wife will have zero interest in this film. I will see it because I find I'm a bit of a completionist with respect to Marvel movies. :7

I’m actually kinda excited for that. Didn’t expect to be, because it’s so far past the point where I thought a BW movie would be interesting (ya know, half a dozen movies ago at least), but it actually looks like a good movie.

I don't need to be a Marvel completionist to watch this.

Heck, I don't need to even like superhero movies to watch ScarJo do backflips* in tight leather pants!
*) haven't watched the trailer at this time; would be surprised if there's no backflips

Marvel movies are definitely "wait till they're on TV or a streaming platform I have" territory for me now. After Endgame, where I felt kinda obliged to keep up, I don't feel that need any more.

I very much wonder how it shook out when Captain America returned the Soul Stone to Vormir. Do the rules of a soul for a soul work both ways?

I'm hoping for an end credits scene that resolves that question. But I'm not holding my breath or anything.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think it'll actually shake out that way. But it's not like they haven't brought back/are bringing back other characters:

Loki
The Vision
Thanos
Gamora

There are plenty of mechanical ways to bring her back - time travel, soul gem hijinks, etc. But I would agree, there needs to be a narrative reason to do so. I'm sure they could come up with something, but will they?

Honestly, though, I seriously doubt they'll do that. Really feels like this is more of an exploration of the character without building her into another ongoing story from here.

Probably not. Because otherwise, the sacrifice to get the stone isn't really an issue. You want the stone? Put your friend in a box for a while, come back and get them out when you are done. No big deal.

This movie is many many years over-due.

Hopefully they use "the taskmaster" properly.

IIRC, the taskmaster can help tie in the MCU with the X-universe and Deadpool.

Is it too much to ask for a Marvel movie that doesn't have any fat jokes? :rolleyes:
These guys are required to be in peak condition all the time to fit into their tight suits/gear and perform - it is nice to see that they struggle (and lose sometimes) with weight. It humanizes them.
