Marvel’s Black Widow is currently filming, and the movie was officially announced this past weekend for release next May. While some of the movie is set closer to present day, they said it would reveal Natasha’s past and why she has red in her ledger; meaning we’ll be seeing flashbacks to her origin before S.H.I.E.L.D..
Of course, that brings up the question of Hawkeye, as the two characters have a history. Budapest does play a part in the movie, and it’s even seen in the trailer they showed to Hall H.
This morning Scarlett Johansson appeared on Good Morning America and the question of Jeremy Renner appearing in the movie as Hawkeye came up:
“Oh my God, that’s when you see the tranq gun come out,” she joked about keeping her lips “sealed” for Marvel. “We have a lot of surprises up our sleeves … Up our Gauntlet.”
There’s been no mention of Renner in the cast, so her response there is interesting It’s possible Hawkeye is meant to be a surprise cameo in the movie, possibly appearing closer to the end to show how Natasha came into contact with S.H.I.E.L.D..
