‘Black Widow’ Won’t Be The Last MCU Prequel According To Kevin Feige
After a year of sitting around, unchanged, we are just a few weeks away from the debut of Marvel’s highly anticipated Black Widow; and it seems, based on recent reports, that Black Widow won’t be the last MCU prequel.
Natasha Romanoff has been a presence in the Marvel cinematic universe for over a decade; appearing in countless films, and giving fans a glimpse into the mysteries of her past through the fierce and determined warrior she is in the present.
Avengers Endgame saw the end of Natasha’s story, as the longtime Avenger, and one of the original six, sacrificed herself for the soul stone; a crucial piece of returning the half of life Thanos snapped away.
In Black Widow, fans are getting one more chance to revisit the character- and see Scarlett Johansson masterfully return to the role she has perfectly embodied for so long- in a prequel story that takes place between Captain America Civil War, and Avengers Infinity War.
It appears that Black Widow won’t be the last MCU prequel according to Kevin Feige.
Kevin Feige, the mastermind behind the flawless continuity of the massive universe, noted Marvels willingness to return to the past for future prequel fans; while also noting that Marvel stories really have no need to hold to the time stream, with stories in the past, present, or future all being in play for the Studio.
Feige stated, “the notion of exploring the past, present, and future of the MCU is certainly in the cards for all of our characters. This particular story of this particular cast is very personal, very specific to Natasha.”
This concise statement says all that fans need to hear in regard to future prequels; if Marvel can find a story to tell that has all the emotional depth and connectivity that their past stories have had, then a prequel story is absolutely on the table.
Marvels signature action, character development, and abundant heart make their films incredibly unique; for Feige, making them personal to the character, and capturing that heart, will truly impact whether the story gets told.
