After over a year’s delay, Black Widow finally stormed cinemas on Wednesday ahead of its Disney+ Premier Access launch today. Scarlett Johansson’s MCU solo movie is set in 2016 right after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before Avengers Infinity War. And early on in the blockbuster, she spends her downtime watching a Roger Moore James Bond movie.
The 007 film in question was 1979’s Moonraker, in which Moore’s Bond goes to Outer Space.
But why exactly was Natasha watching the marmite movie, which the Avenger clearly knows well as she was seen reciting the dialogue?
Well, Black Widow director Cate Shortland weighed in on this decision during a recent interview.
Speaking with Uproxx, the filmmaker said: “You know, we debated which [Bond] film.”
Black Widow is the first MCU movie in two years and will be followed by three more in 2021.
Next up is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3.
This will be followed by Eternals on November 5 and Spider-Man No Way Home on December 17, 2021.
Black Widow is in cinemas now and streaming on Disney+ Premier Access.
