The Marvel Cinematic Universe resumed its march forward in theaters with the release of “Black Widow” last month. The film could have ended otherwise since an alternative ending exists and is revealed in video. Attention, the article contains SPOILERS!
End clap for Black Widow
Scarlett Johansson blames Disney / Marvel for releasing Black widow simultaneously on Disney +, which tarnishes its end of story in the MCU. If the character has been around for a long time and has even died in Avengers: Endgame, he had the right to his own film to launch phase 4 in theaters. A project that allows you to learn more about your personal history, to introduce her heiress (Yelena Belova played by Florence Pugh) and provide him with the opportunity to bid farewell to the public. With us, Black widow was only released in theaters on July 7th.
The scenario takes place after the events seen in Captain America: Civil War and tells how Natasha Romanoff reconnects with her past by moving away from the Avengers. The film obviously brings a lot of useful information in the context of the extended universe but does not greatly advance the next narrative lines.
An alternate ending exists
Black widow ends with Natasha who can fly aboard a ship thanks to Rick. She admits to wanting to find her other family, the Avengers, to try to fix everyone and get some out of prison. However, the film could have ended otherwise. Thanks to its digital release, we can lay our eyes on an alternative ending that was not chosen. It radically changes from the one we have because it shows the heroine back in Ohio. The land of his childhood, where the film opens, precisely. She stops in front kids playing the Avengers then exchanges a sign with a little girl.
We don’t know exactly if this scene could have served as an ending or if it should complement the one we know. But it turns out to be interesting because it highlights the new generation and the fact that these superheroes are a source of inspiration for children. Marvel is also expected to embark on the Young Avengers project at some point.
Pictures are better than words, this alternate ending can be seen below:
