What Natasha’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Death Means for ‘Black Widow,’ According to Scarlett Johansson

Since the 2018 announcement of Black Widow, a question has loomed over the movie: why now?

In the early phases of the MCU, when origin stories ran the show, it seemed only natural to make way for a two-hour action/thriller about the life of an international secret agent. Instead, Natasha jumped from ensemble movie to sequel and back again, always a side character despite stealing every scene.
