Will Robert Downey Jr. Appear in Black Widow Prequel?

Tony Stark and Natasha

Avengers: Endgame proved to be a sure ending to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers teamed up together this time to fight against evil Thanos who nearly dusted half living being with just a Snap.

Fans might be happy with Thanos’s end but on the same side are sad due to the demise of their favorite characters. Writers confirmed that Iron Man and Black Widow are really dead.

Scarlett in Marvel movies…

Scarlett Johnsson has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for almost as long as Robert Downey Jr. She made her first appearance as Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, in 2010’s Iron Man 2. Black Widow remained to be one of the most important figures in the MCU. She remained to be a complicated character with the chaos around her history.

Marvel is well in keeping things under wraps for a long time. The same applies to the character of Black Widow. Black Widow film should’ve happened years ago, honestly. The most logical place for her solo film would’ve been shortly after Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the 2014-2016 era of the MCU.

Recently during a press meet, Marvel released a set of dates that would be releasing in upcoming years. We can consider that one of the dates may be for Black Widow’s prequel. After the box office success of Captain Marvel, the first solo female superhero film in the MCU, and the events of Avengers: Endgame, fans should be talking more about the upcoming Black Widow film.

Robert Downey Jr. joined hands with Marvel with, Iron Man donning the suit in the 2008 origin story. Ironman tasted both the critical success and a box office smash. The epic movie kickstarted the widespread success that the MCU has come to know.

Robert Downey’s Cameo.

The buzz around the come back of Robert Downey Jr.in Marvel movies is strong but it’s unexpected. He will not come back until fans stop hoping and waiting for him. You have to miss the character so that his appearance is all the more satisfying. As we know Robert Downey Jr.’s current contract with Marvel has ended, he seems to be a part of some new movies soon.

Heres now when we have no confirmed stats, it can be assumed if the Black Widow movie will be a prequel. Meaning, it will likely focus on the Avenger’s life before she came on to work for Tony Stark. If the Black Widow receives several standalone movies, as did the other Avengers, It might not be rational to assume that the last one would end with her entering Tony Stark’s building. We are unaware of Black Widow who preceded the events of Iron Man 2.

A subtle Stark appearance would prove to be quick, satisfying, and realistic. We know where the Black Widow’s origin tale eventually takes her. We have strong vibes if writers are penning down a small cameo of Tony Stark in the movie.

With director Cate Shortland on board, and several actors cast, such as David Harbour and Rachel Weisz, the Black Widow solo film is currently in pre-production. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Black Widow standalone film will be a prequel, and the events of Avengers: Endgame confirm this.

Avengers: Endgame is currently running in theaters and is shattering all previous records. It brings an end to the epic saga that MCU developed in 11 years.
