WARNING: This article contains full spoilers for Black Widow.
Black Widow bolsters the titular international assassin’s storyline by delving into her backstory. The character’s “family” members are introduced, made up of Red Guardian (David Habour), Melina (Rachel Weisz) and Yelena Bulova (Florence Pugh). After the events of the film are brought to an end, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) makes a return with a new look.
What does the final Black Widow scene mean?
After Black Widow successfully defeated Dreykov (Ray Winstone) at The Red Room’s floating headquarters, she freed the other Widows from their mind control.
Together with Yelena, Red Guardian and Melina, the widows – and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) – escaped to live a new life full of free will.
Black Widow stood to meet General Ross (William Hurt) who was coming to arrest her for rejecting the Sokovia Accords.
The film then fades to black and shows a “two weeks later” title. The story picks up again with Natasha meeting Mason (O-T Fagbenle) her arms dealer.
When Natasha returns to the big screen she is sporting a new look with shorter blonde hair.
This is the style she had in the follow-up movie to Captain America: Civil War, Avengers Infinity War.
Mason then presents the hero with a brand new Quinjet. He comments: “You see what I can do with some time and a little bit of money?”
