For years, fans have been asking for a solo film starring everyone’s favorite super-spy, Black Widow. But what could a film following Natasha Romanoff actually be about? There are tons of different directions it can go in ranging from a prequel to a sequel that follows the character in the years leading up to Iron Man 2 — some may call that the Red Sparrow approach.
Our friends at That Hashtag Show are now reporting that they have the first details regarding the in-development film. According to two separate sources, the film will follow Natasha living in the U.S. 15 years after the Soviet Union collapsed. Math and world history double majors will know that that plants the story in the mid-2000s, a few years prior to the events of Iron Man 2 — depending on when you think Iron Man 2 takes place (some say 2009, some say 2012).
This opens up all kinds of possibilities and will allow us to meet a more jaded Black Widow, and could even see her team up with Hawkeye. Additionally, there were supposedly some discussions about having The Winter Soldier show up. If you’ll recall, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Natasha shared a story where she had a run-in with the cyborg assassin, so seeing that particular event would be interesting (though ultimately unfulfilling, since they won’t really get to know who that character is).
Based on all this info, it sounds like the number of options actually available are virtually endless. A lot of Natasha’s past has been shrouded in secrecy, and that gives them plenty of room to take creative license and take the character in an interesting direction.
