Here's Where Black Widow Ended Up In The What If...? Season Finale

A place for everything and everything in its place. At the conclusion of the Season 1 finale of "What If...?" there's a home for every single member of the Guardians of the Multiverse, the team assembled from across time and space to defeat the ultimate version of Ultron. For some, that means returning to the worlds that The Watcher plucked them from after a hard-fought battle. For others, it means finding a new home to call your own.

Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Black Widow’ on Disney+, a Rousing MCU Goodbye for Scarlett Johansson and Hello to Phase Four

Benedict Cumberbatch Calls Scarlett Johansson’s Disney Lawsuit "A Bit Of a Mess" The debut of Black Widow on Disney+, four months and some change after landing in theaters and Disney+’s Premier Access tier, happens a full 17 months after the film was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters, way back in May of 2020. Whether you found the break refreshing or tragic is a matter of perspective, and thank Stan Lee in Valhalla that three MCU TV series debuted this year, lest devotees suffer even more. This is a long way of saying that the MCU, enjoyable as it is, is starting to consume the pop-cultural world like a great white in a feeding frenzy. We feel its absence intently; some of us have experienced the weird psychological effect where we feel grossly inadequate if we aren’t quite caught up on Loki yet, as if the zeitgeist is our god (and let’s be clear, if it’s a god, it’s a god of mischief). Regardless, as long as we keep shoveling money into the Disney-Marvel hole, the hits will keep coming — and Black Widow, which is a sayonara for Scarlett Johansson’s character and the first of 11 movies in Phase Four of the MCU (sigh? Maybe, but yeah, kind of), gives us our fix.

‘What If…?’ Finale: Fans are Pairing Captain Peggy Carter and Black Widow Together

Watcher brought together various heroes and villains from past episodes, and two particular characters caught fans’ attention. Captain Peggy Carter and Black Widow had plenty of chemistry in the finale, so much so that fans have started shipping the two.

Disney CEO Defends Studio Amid Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Black Widow’ Lawsuit: “Our Talent Is Our Most Important Asset”

Coincidentally, this morning at Goldman Sachs’ 30th annual Communacopia Conference, Disney CEO Bob Chapek was asked a question about the compensation of Hollywood talent in the wake of long-standing distribution models being upended and the advantages the studio has in terms of being a place that talent wants to work in a direct-to-consumer marketplace. This question at the confab in the wake of a continued fiery lawsuit with Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson, who has sued Disney over lost monies due to the film’s theatrical-day-and-date-PVOD release on Disney+, and also the studio making good with Cruella star Emma Stone for a sequel.
