Black Widow writer Eric Pearson shed some light on the Marvel Studios film's foreboding post-credits scene.

"I loved the idea right from the beginning that we opened the movie with Ohio and this kind moment at peace where Natasha's a kid," Pearson told ComicBook.com. "She's basically living as a kid, forgotten her whole mission as a secret, Russian spy. And then we end the movie with the fireflies again and she's gone through this, she's reconciled with her past, she's at peace again, ready to go on and make that ultimate sacrifice. So, the idea that this family, whether it's Yelena or the family, erected a tombstone for her in Ohio, I felt was very touching, and I loved that."

In the post-credits scene, Yelena Belova visits Natasha Romanoff's grave, only to be greeted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. Apparently serving as Yelena's employer, Valentina informs the grief-stricken super-spy that the one responsible for her surrogate sister's death is Clint Barton/Hawkeye.

"As soon as they told me that there's this character in Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, and it was going to be Julia Louis-Dreyfus, I couldn't have gotten to the computer fast enough," Pearson continued. "I was like, 'Yes! Let me at it.' That's me. I want to take a serious moment and then flush it down the toilet. Like, I want to take that great moment where Yelena is truly having a moment of quiet reflection with her lost sister and then have Julia Louis-Dreyfus blow her nose and just be so ruthlessly pragmatic about everything."

In late 2020, Florence Pugh's Yelena was confirmed for Disney+'s Hawkeye series, which is reportedly targeting a fall 2021 premiere date. That said, it shouldn't be long before the seeds planted in Black Widow begin to sprout throughout the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, O-T Fagbenle as Mason and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff. The film is now in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access.
