According to Kevin Feige, the events of Black Widow will change the way we look at Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. The Marvel Studios president spoke at CCXP (per JoBlo) and said that the film, which occurs after the events of Captain America: Civil War, will recontextualize Natasha’s actions in the end of the Infinity Saga.

“We knew that we wanted to bring her story to a conclusion in the most heroic way possible in Endgame, but also that we wanted to explore a part of her life that we hadn’t seen before. It occurred to us that we had seen her adventures in the Avengers movies, but a lot of stuff happened in between those movies that we never saw, we didn’t hear about, we didn’t learn about. And [with] that, we wanted to do a movie with Scarlett Johansson because she is Natasha Romanoff and not do a story with a younger Black Widow for the whole film.”

He continued, “But we had this thought of exploring a little bit of her past that we hadn’t seen before and how that impacts the adventure she had between Civil War and Infinity War. And in fact, there are things that she does in Infinity War and Endgame that you’ll see in a new light once you see the Black Widow.”

Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson in the lead role alongside Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz and releases on May 1st, 2020.
