Three years ago, when Thanos’ powerful threat was at its peak in Avengers: Infinity War, Avenger Black Widow super-spy (Scarlett Johansson) appeared on camera with a new look.
We’re not talking about her short, platinum blonde haircut (although it was a cool look for her). We’re talking about her most stylish accessory: an indescribable dark green tactical vest with pockets.
The vest was never recognized for Infinity war. As Thanos knocks on Earth’s Gate in Wakanda, no one spared a moment to compliment Natasha’s new cut. But now in his solo feature Black Widow – located between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War – the end of the movie reveals the very cool way Black Widow got her vest.
And as expected, there is a deeper story behind it all.
Warning: Spoilers for Black Widow forward.
How Black Widow Got Her Vest
As seen in Black Widow, Natasha teams up with Yelena (Florence Pugh), her ex-sister in the Red Room. While she’s on the run together, Yelena picks up a greenish-brown vest that she’s just one bit Obsessed by. As she enthusiastically proclaims on a midnight car ride: “He has pockets!
Fast forward to the end of Black Widow, Natasha succeeds and literally brings down the red room with her “family”, including her “mother” Melina (Rachel Weisz) and her “father” Alexei (David Harbor). When the sisters separate, Yelena gives Natasha the waistcoat she has attached to as a symbolic gesture to show that Yelena “will be” with her on her next adventure.
It’s the fight against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Besides, the end of Black Widow also shows how Natasha gets a fully functioning Quinjet (courtesy of her contact Rick Mason, played by OT Fagbenle), which the Avengers use in both Infinity war and End of Game to get to Wakanda and planets like Vormir.
Black Widow ending explained: “This becomes a legacy”
In Infinity war, Natasha’s vest was nothing more than a cool accessory that surely encouraged cosplayers to scour the internet for replicas. But during a scheduled visit in the presence of the press, ScreenRant reported that Scarlett Johansson said in a “totally Kevin Feige” manner, her Infinity war The waistcoat was a gift from Yelena and was “actually … an important thing”.
It sounds very superficial, but it’s actually very unique, it’s a very meaningful thing. [Kevin Feige] love all those stories and things that connect the characters to each other. When we designed it back then, it was really a different look for the character, but it’s fun to see how Kevin’s mind works – he’s like a fantasy that way, where he thinks about. all the little hidden things that people will give away, things that are seemingly harmless, some heart. It’s a legacy, it becomes a legacy in this unexpected and fun way.
The future of the black widow
Natasha’s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is over, after her sacrifice in End of Game. But that doesn’t have to be the end of Black Widow.
With the Black Widow mantle vacant, there is a strong implication that Yelena will take it and continue Natasha’s legacy. And his first mission is to avenge Natasha’s death. She is entrusted to Val (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, in an appearance originally supposed to precede her role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), who believes Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is responsible for Natasha’s murder. The dramatic irony is that we, the audience, know the truth; it was a selfless sacrifice by Natasha.
With Yelena who should appear in the Disney + series Hawk Eye Later this year, fans can look forward to a bow-and-stick clash again soon. And you can bet Yelena will look cool. I mean, come on: she has pockets!
Black Widow is now streaming on Disney + Premier Access and is now playing in theaters.
