The Marvel movie for our favorite female assassin Black Widow is coming out July 9, 2021, and we're all hoping that a tradition in the MCU stays alive. Even though this movie is a prequel — and in today's time, Natasha Romanoff is dead —we'd love to see a post-credits scene.
If there is one, what could it possibly show that would create the suspenseful foundation we've come to expect? Black Widow takes place between The Avengers: Civil War and Infinity War, but comes years after both of those films were released.
Is there a post-credits scene in 'Black Widow?'
Luckily for Marvel fans, we will be seeing a post-credits scene in this movie. However, it's not a traditional post-credits scene that we've all become used to. Typically, once a movie in the MCU finishes, we see a more stylized credit sequence featuring the stars before the mid-credits scene. Then, the main credits roll before one final, very short post-credits joke . But according to Inverse, that's not exactly how it will happen for Black Widow. This time, directly after the end of the movie, fans will see the main credits.
Fans will have to watch all of the regular credits before seeing the post-credits scene. Because of this, it seems like we'll be missing out completely on those Marvel-style credits. And hopefully, the scene is good enough to make people want to sit through those longer standard credits to watch it in the first place. But it's difficult to visualize how it will make sense in context when we're now in Phase Four of the MCU (and Black Widow takes place in a previous phase).
What is the 'Black Widow' post-credits scene about?
For now, we have no idea what the post-credits scene will be about or how it will enter the next movie into the MCU. There are a number of movies coming out in the next few years including Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so the scene could be connected to any one of those or none of them at all.
We know that she sacrificed herself to put the Soul Stone back in its original place in Endgame. Moving forward, the only way her fans will be able to see her is through flashbacks and memories of the remaining Avengers including her best friend Hawkeye. At one time, she also had a budding romance with Bruce Banner aka. The Hulk who has yet to have his own origin movie with his current actor Mark Ruffalo.
