- Black Widow marks the beginning of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s also the twenty-fourth film in the franchise.
The film is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War.
Although this is the first Black Widow solo film, this is the eighth time Scarlett Johansson has portrayed the character.
The film had been in development since 2004, when Lionsgate had the rights to the character. However, Lionsgate dropped the project in 2006 and the rights returned to Marvel.
It wasn’t until 2014, after Black Widow’s past was explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron that Kevin Feige considered a solo film for the character.
