It’s not every day President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, just comes out and shares his company secrets. But it happened Monday night during one Black widow se fest that took place on Twitter. Feige stayed online throughout and told anecdotes, gave shoutouts and answered fans questions about the film – qshows that opened up lots of speculation about what might be next for the film’s characters.
For the entire thread, click on one of the tweets below and just expand them. But here are some of the best-and most cryptic—tweets from Fej. The first has to do with the question of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) was dusted off Thanos under Infinity War. (Do not forget Black widow takes place before the event.)
“Du wiI find out, but not on this Twitter thread. Damn, Kevin, how are you going to tease us like that? To wonder when it’s probably Yelena’s next to show up Hawkeye TV show (because of Black widow‘s final credit scene), one could imagine that her Thanos story would somehow play into it. Or maybe not.
Speaking of Yelena, one of Black widow‘s sweeter connections are retcon of Natasha wearing the vest Yelena gave her in Black widow in Infinity War. Feige revealed the idea of getting the link in place early.
One of the best consistent lines in Black widow is the wanderer of the Red Guardian (David Harbor). He talks about all his showdowns with Captain America, and how it was a big deal to get Russia’s hero to fight the hero in the United States. We have not seen it, but Kevin Feige agreed that he likes the idea of the new Captain America, played by Anthony Mackie, shows up with the guardian.
But Sam Wilson will not become Captain America until long after Black widow. And was not Steve Rogers in the ice from the 1940s to 2000ss? Feige rightly notes this …
Which makes you wonder who fought the Red Guardian? Did he fight with anyone? Think back just a few more months Falk and winter soldier. Isaiah Bradley fought as an American-sanctioned supersoldier for some of the years the Guardian talked about. Plus, his existence suggests that there could have been other soldiers experimenting with. It looks like it’s a story we’ll get a lot more of in the future.
Unpacking things, Feige addressed the film’s final credit sequence with Julia Louis Dreyfus as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. This was supposed to be her debut as the character but because of the pandemic, her appearance on Falk and winter soldier come first. Nevertheless, Feige teases that she’s back, and even jokes about a connection to Loki.
It’s just classic Feige: dshout some kind of weird connection that means nothing and let the fans wonder about it for hours! Again to see more from Feige with regard to Sort Widow, click on one of the tweets above and expand them. He was online for the full twoplus hours with Black widowruntime, so there are lots of fun nuggets.
