Despite being the movie to kick off the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Widow is actually set right after Captain America: Civil War, before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, meaning it’s basically a prequel instead of a continuation of what we saw in Endgame. And now, we might see Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the upcoming movie.

A report from Deadline mentioned that Robert Downey Jr. would return to his iconic role in Black Widow, which is set to hit theaters in May 2020. In fact, rumors of this have been going around for quite some time given how the setting of the movie can open up room for multiple Marvel characters to make cameos and appearances, but they have never been more than that – rumors – until now.

That said, another article from Comicbook claims that Downey Jr.'s appearance in Black Widow might just be a recycled footage, just like what we saw in Spider-Man: Far From Home. There’s a high chance that it’ll be a deleted scene from Civil War, during which Tony told Natasha to run, which is why we saw her with Steve Rogers and the other Secret Avengers in Infinity War. So in short, it’ll be a scene that’s already filmed but has never been used before.

Starring Scarlett Johansson as the titular heroine, Black Widow will also feature David Harbour as Red Guardian – who is basically a Russian Captain America, as well as Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz. The main antagonist will be Taskmaster, a character possessing "photogenic reflexes" that enables him to quickly mimic the fighting style of his opponents just by observing them, making him an incredibly daunting foe to face.
