As the Marvel Cinematic Universe enters its 12th year, their upcoming slate of films includes the return of fan favorites and soon-to-be-classic adaptations of some of the studio’s lesser known characters. Set both on Earth and the cosmos above, where can we expect the MCU to go next?
Where We’ve Been: Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff was the second Avenger introduced to audiences on screen in Iron Man 2, and her debut hit as hard as her fists. Although cold and disconnected by necessity, Johansson continued to enrich each successive performance as Widow by playing the icy agent with increasing vulnerability. The S.H.I.E.L.D. spy soon let the Avengers become her surrogate family — a fresh start from the difficult past she has mentioned over the course of her film appearances. Though 2019’s Avengers: Endgame may have seen her titular character sacrifice herself for the sake of the unique, the First Lady of Marvel will be seen this November for a solo prequel adventure.
