Black Widow Was Meant to Set Up a Falcon and Winter Soldier Connection

Natasha Romanoff is on the hunt to find Mephisto. Perhaps. Image courtesy of Marvel StudiosMarvel is given a lot of credit, perhaps too much credit, for the idea that its cinematic universe was meticulously planned years in advance. This grand plan that we all follow as if by necessity more than the planning power a studio worth billions. But with the events of the past 18 months, it is clear that some of that planning was not successful. Kevin Feige says that only a small amount of it has been implemented.AdvertisementOn The Red Carpet, Black Widow's premiere was discussed by Feige. This film was originally intended to launch Marvels Phase 4 plans. However, the pandemic caused it to be delayed multiple times. Feige also spoke out about Marvel Studios reaction to covid-19's impact on the rollout. Black Widow is not the only film that was delayed. Shang-Chi and The Eternals were also delayed for the next few years. However, Disney has been able to capitalize on the arrival of its Disney+ showsWandaVision and Falcon, as well as the ongoing Loki. All of these are films Widow was originally meant to release before the movie releases.All things considered, this is a minor shift. It's Widows delayed release which has largely changed the expectations of Marvels post-Endgame catalog. Feige said that the only thing that has impacted the movie's post-Endgame content is the early revelation of one connection between it and Disney+. Feige also explained that there is an Easter egg that originally was to be in Black Widow and then appear in Falcon and Winter Soldier. However, because of the pandemicits, the only thing in our Phase 4 that was slightly twisted was the Easter egg. Fans who saw Falcon and Winter Soldier will find something in the Easter egg.Vanity Fair had reported that the Easter e gg was Julia Louis-Dreyfus Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. This character is a comic strip character with links to many R olodexs of publishers spy-fi secret organisations f rom SHIELD and Hydra. She was also the owner of Madame Hydra's mantle. We are not aware of de Fontaines plans, but we do know that she has teamed up Wyatt Russells John Walker. This makes it unlikely that meeting her in Falcon will have much impact. Feige claims that it is the only major reshuffle planned for Phase 4.Are you curious about where our RSS feed went. The new one can be found here.
