Filming for the new Black Widow movie is underway, despite the character’s face at the end of Avengers: Endgame. The movie is set to be an origin story about Natasha Romanova, played by Scarlett Johansson. Set photos from the Black Widow movie have made their way online, and fans are parsing them for clues.
When does the Black Widow movie take place?
Initially, CBR posited the movie will take place in the year 2017, but this may not be true after all.
If 2017 is correct, this places Black Widow’s solo movie between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
CBR based the guess on the model of the car in the leaked set photo.

According to the site, the car she drives is a 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring Wagon.
CBR added: “There are untold thousands of 2017 cars operating today, sure.
“But when has an MCU film set in the present day ever showcased anything other than a new (or even not-yet-released) vehicle, usually as part of a deal with an automaker?

“That almost certainly points to the events of Black Widow taking place between the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (released in 2018, but may take place in 2017, depending on which timeline you believe).”
However, io9 has now reported this may not be the case.
They wrote: “Our friends at Jalopnik have offered us their expertise on this subject.

“Staff writer Justin Westbrook told us the speculation was based on the assumption that the car in the photos was a 2017 5 Series wagon, but in his expert opinion, it appears to actually be a new BMW X5 SUV.
“’A 2020 X5 could look like this,” he said, ‘and I’m pretty positive it’s an X5.'”
So there you have it, it’s either in 2020 or in 2017, or perhaps both – given Marvel’s penchant for time travel.
Black Widow will likely be in cinemas sometime in 2020.
