On Friday, ComicBookMovie.com was among the outlets present for the Black Widow global press conference. We'll have lots of great content to bring you from that over the coming days, but one question saw Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige asked whether future movies could follow Black Widow by delving into the past of the characters who inhabit the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After all, it could be fun to pick up with Bruce Banner between the events of The Incredible Hulk and The Avengers, or even someone like Gamora before she appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy.
As for Feige's take on future movies following Black Widow's example, he said: "Well, certainly this film and this story is a particular case for Natasha, but 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, this particular cast, is very personal, very specific, to Natasha."
Natasha Romanoff died in Avengers: Endgame, so it was necessary to revisit her past in a Black Widow movie. While Marvel Studios does constantly seem to look ahead to the future, going back to fill in some gaps in the MCU's history would be no bad thing, and might even set up some new stories.
Black Widow is set to be released in theaters and on Disney+'s Premier Access on July 9.
