Amidst rumours that she might join DC, space just opened up for Brie Larson in a Marvel Phase 4 movie. Brie Larson might be coming to Black Widow and there are reasons in support that fit in like a glove. Scroll through to find out.
Coronavirus has created a possibility for Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel to see an early entry in Marvel Phase 4 with a post-credits appearance in Black Widow. Phase 4 was supposed to kick-start with Black Widow’s release in April 2020. But with the exponential spread of coronavirus, the Black Widow release date has been delayed. We have reason to believe that this has opened up a window of opportunity for Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
- Black Widow has been delayed due to coronavirus but no new release date has been introduced as of now.
- Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson could be coming back in the Black Widow movie post-credits scene.
- The possibility of an all-female Marvel superhero movie.
- Making Captain Marvel 2 a billion-dollar movie
Coronavirus, Black Widow and the possibility of Brie Larson in the Phase 4 movie
Marvel Studios has delayed Black Widow without a next release date in the pipeline. With this delay, the makers’ creative minds will be brimming with ideas. And in that creative space, there is an idea that fits in like a jigsaw puzzle. The last time Brie Larson appeared in a Marvel movie was Captain Marvel, it made a billion at the box office. In fact, it is expected that Captain Marvel 2 will break Avengers: Endgame box-office record.
To break this world record, Captain Marvel actress, Brie Larson needs to stay fresh in the audience’s mind. But, Captain Marvel 2 release date is nowhere before 2022 (in fact, it might be delayed even more because coronavirus has caused a whole shift in the Marvel Phase 4 release date timeline).
An all-female Marvel superhero movie
In 2019, Brie Larson spoke about the possibility of an all-female Marvel superhero movie. In Larson’s words “I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this.”
What’s interesting is that Kevin Feige is apparently invested in the idea. (Well, so are the fans!)
But for such a movie to take place, MCU would require Black Widow (who died in Avengers: Endgame) to be alive. So, such a movie would need to take place before the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Fitting in like a jigsaw puzzle
The Black Widow movie, which is set after the events of the Civil War, could prove to be a gold mine to introduce such a movie. But since Captain Marvel was introduced to MCU in Avengers: Endgame, nowhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have these two female superheroes met. To establish this connection, Marvel could chip in a post-credits scene that will form the basis of an all-female Marvel movie with both, Black Widow and Captain Marvel, in it.
This way, Marvel could also cash in on two of its most loved and most profitable characters’ fame (Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel respectively).
What do you think? Will coronavirus change the course of Black Widow and add Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel to the movie? Share your views with us in the comments section below.
