Black Widow will be Marvel Studios' first Phase 4 movie, and while it's set to take place in the past, we can expect it to fill in some major gaps in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's long-running history. 

Now, writer Jac Schaeffer has shed some light on what fans can expect while confirming that the movie will indeed deal with the fallout from Captain America: Civil War.

The last time we saw Natasha, she had been forced to go on the run after helping Steve Rogers escape, and this movie will find her "very much on her own" after the events of that movie. As for her solo outing, that will see the hero forced to "reckon with some of the red in her ledger."

Schaeffer was also asked about the possibility that the female-led Black Widow will be trolled the same way Captain Marvel was earlier this year, but she isn't letting that bother her. "When people react with hate, it saddens me. I think it’s a shame," the writer explains. "But that’s not where I want to put my energy. I’m not interested in the loud, sour-grapes voices."

"When something huge explodes and all the pieces are landing, you have that moment of stillness where you don’t know what to do next — that’s the moment that she’s in," Scarlett Johansson says. "In that moment, you actually have to face yourself."
 


"In a way, he’s a super-soldier, but he’s also a very complicated guy," David Harbour says of Russia's answer to Captain America, Red Guardian. "He has a lot of flaws, a lot of idiosyncrasies. It’s a very rich character." That beard is pretty damn impressive, eh?
 


It hasn't been released online but those attending Comic-Con were treated to a fight scene between Black Widow and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova. However, it sounds like these two have a sister-like relationship and will actually be allies in the movie. 
 


O.T. Fagbenle describes his character Mason as "a fixer" who comes from Natasha's past and may have feelings for her. "It’s a bit of a complex relationship with Natasha because obviously, ostensibly we have this kind of business transaction, but I think there’s a little romantic frisson." The question is, could he be playing Taskmaster? That would certainly be a pretty interesting twist.
 


Rachel Weisz's is reportedly playing Malena in the movie, "a seasoned spy and assassin," who has "been cycled through the Black Widow Red Room [program] five times at this point in her life." She also plays a key role in some sort of experiement in the film.
