Black Widow Movie Review And Where It Fits In The Marvel Timeline

14 July 2021

Disclosure - We already have a Disney+ account through a previous collaboration. Our account has since been upgraded to include Premier Access to watch Black Widow. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own unless stated. This post contains affiliate links. 

Wednesday 7th July saw the release of the new Marvel movie Black Widow. It was then available to watch on Disney+ via Premier Access from the 9th July 2021. Usually we would head to the cinema with a bucket full of popcorn to watch new releases however since all the recent restrictions we would much rather create a cinema movie night at home

We have been waiting for Black Widow to be released for a long time now as we are huge Marvel fans and Black Widow is such an interesting character, we couldn't wait to learn more about where she came from and how she actually became an Avenger.

I don't really like writing movie reviews as I would hate to spoil it for someone who hasn't watched the movie yet however there are a few things I wanted to share so thought I would write them for the Marvel fans out there. 

Firstly the movie wasn't what I expected. For some reason I thought this movie was set in Natasha's past and we would be able to see her growing up and learn how and why she is who she is. The movie does touch on this and we do learn about her past however the whole movie is set right after Captain America - Civil War finishes. If you do like to watch the Marvel movies in chronological order then you would fit Black Widow in-between Civil War and Doctor Strange.

So whilst we did find out more about Natasha's past and some of her upbringing it is actually set when she is already an Avenger and on the run. 

As a stand alone movie I really enjoyed it. It was action packed and everything you would expect from a Marvel Movie. 

There are no guest appearances from any of the Avengers or other Marvel Characters. There are references to Captain America and Clint Barton however no cameos unfortunately. 

The storyline ends where Black Widow heads off to try and rebuild the relationships that are broken after Civil War. The movies finishes with a cliff-hanger that makes us assume that it will continue to play out in the new upcoming Marvel mini series Hawkeye.

If you are a Marvel fan you won't be disappointed. If you do want to watch in the comfort of your own home then you can watch through Disney+ Premier Access which costs £19.99 on top of your monthly subscription. The movie is then yours to watch over and over.

Disclosure - this post has been updated and republished. It also contains affiliate links.

I can't believe it's two years ago since we binge watched all the Marvel movies in just 3 weeks. Neither of us have ever wanted to watch the Marvel movies before but the world had gone Marvel crazy and everyone we knew was heading to the cinema to watch Avengers - The End Game.

As we had never watched any we decided to look up all the Marvel movies and then we decided to watch them in chronological order rather than release order. Watching the movies and storylines in this order made more sense. 

Once we had our list we headed to Amazon Prime Video to begin. We had just over three weeks before End Game finished on the cinema to watch all 21 movies and we did it. 21 movies in 21 days. 

If you are thinking of watching the Marvel movies then here is the list in chronological order.

Captain America - The First Avenger
Set in 1943-1945

Captain Marvel
Set in 1995

Herodrive Marvel Vehicle Review

18 November 2019

No comments
Disclosure - We were sent the Herodrive Marvel vehicles for the purpose of this post. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own. This post contains affiliate links - purchasing an item through an affiliate link adds no extra cost to you but might earn me a few pennies. 

Back in April John and I sat down one Saturday evening and decided to watch a Marvel movie. We had never seen any of the Marvel movies before so we researched it online and decided to start at the beginning and watch all the Marvel movies in chronological order. Watching the 22 films in 30 days was the start of our family becoming Marvel obsessed. We managed to finish all the movies before Endgame finished at the cinema and booked a spur of the moment trip to Disneyland Paris for the Season Of The Superheroes Event. We have been hooked since so when we received The Marvel Superheroes Herodrive cars I knew that I would probably love them us as much as little J.

The idea behind the Mod Squad Car is very simple. each set contains one Mod Squad Car. You can choose from Hulk, Iron Man and Spider-Man. The car is made up of three different pieces which can connect together.

The first part is the back of the car, the second part is the middle and the three part is the front. When you are ready to play you fit all three pieces together and your car is ready. There is more fun to be had though as you can mix and match the pieces of your car with those from another set.

There are so many possibilities to choose from you could have Spider-Man at the back, the middle could be Hulk and the front could be Iron Man.

Each Mod Squad Car also comes with an extra piece. If you collect all 3 pieces from the different sets you will complete Captain America. He too can be mixed and matched with the other cars in the range.

It's such a simple idea however we've had lots of fun making all different combinations of Superheroes.

Also in the Superhero Herodrive range are Speed Squad Minis. These are smaller cars in the colours of your favourite superheroes.

They are a push-a-long car with a chunky body and big wheels. They are great for little hands and they really do speed across the floor.

Little J has really enjoyed playing with both sets of cars and is asking Father Christmas for The Hulk Mod Squad Car so he can complete the set.

The Speed Squad Minis are a great addition to the Superhero Herodrive range and are perfect for stockings this Christmas.
