Warning: This article features spoilers for Black Widow.
A revealing post-credits scene has become a staple for Marvel films. Traditionally, these after-the-movie moments are utilized to move the Marvel Cinematic Universe forward as it hints at what’s to come.
In the past, everything from the creation of the Avengers to Thanos’ evil plan has been teased. So, we weren’t surprised when Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh, had its very own post-credits scene. However, what we didn’t expect is that the clip would set the stage for Marvel’s next big Disney+ show.
While Black Widow takes place several years before the events of Avengers: Endgame, where Natasha (Johansson) sacrificed herself in the quest to defeat Thanos, the post-credits scene takes the viewers to present day. Specifically, Yelena (Pugh), Natasha’s sister of sorts, is seen visiting the late superhero’s gravestone.
Yet, Yelena isn’t alone as she’s greeted by Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). For those who need a refresher, Valentina made her grand entrance into the MCU in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where she promised to rehabilitate the image of disgraced John Walker (Wyatt Russell).
