The year 2020 hasn’t been kind to anyone. For MCU fans, the wait for Black Widow is only getting longer. Scarlett Johansson joined MCU in 2010 with Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man 2. However, in these 10 years, there was not a single movie starring her in lead. When Marvel finally made a solo movie for Natasha Romanoff, pandemic happened.
Since the first trailer released, there have been speculations that RDJ has a cameo in Johansson’s movie. The actor retired from MCU with Avengers: Endgame last year. Just like him, Captain America aka Chris Evans also bid goodbye to Marvel movies.
Now, a fascinating theory suggests how Chris Evans’ Captain America can appear in Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. If you are an ardent MCU fan, you know the movie is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. At that time, Chris’ Steve Rogers was alive in the MCU timeline.
The theory was put forward by Screenrant. It stated that in Black Widow, we might get to see how Natasha helped Cap to hide after his fight with Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man. It will help to fill the gap between the end of Civil War and how they team up in Avengers: Infinity War.
The theory suggests – “Aside from references to Captain America in Black Widow, the character could also be directly involved in the narrative if it reveals how Nat joins him in hiding. Seeing her make the call to Captain America wishing to join them would be a nifty wat to connect the events of Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War via the upcoming Marvel standalone. Perhaps, the movie can even feature a small cameo from Steve, even if it’s just his voice as he and Nat come up with a plan to meet.”
But Chris Evans is in no mood to return to MCU. The movie is also ready. This theory sounds interesting and logical. But at the end of the day, everyone knows the actor won’t appear as Captain America in Black Widow.
