The post-credits scene from “Black Widow” might connect with the upcoming “Hawkeye” series.

What is the ‘Black Widow’ post-credits scene?

The post-credits scene shows Yelena (Florence Pugh) visiting the grave of Natasha/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), who died in “Avengers: Endgame.” In that film, Black Widow sacrificed herself by falling off a cliff so that Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) could secure the Soul Stone in order to stop Thanos.

  • As Yelena looks at the grave, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) appears, sneezing beside the grave. She hands Yelena a piece of paper that shows Hawkeye. She says Hawkeye is responsible for Natasha’s death.

What will happen in ‘Hawkeye’ after ‘Black Widow’ scene?

Renner said Tuesday at a “Hawkeye” press conference that there’s something going on with that scene, but he couldn’t say much.

  • “I can’t tease too much about that,” he said. “I’m aware that’s there. I’m definitely aware that that’s happening. I don’t know what the deal is with that but I hope it gets sorted out.”

“Hawkeye” director Rhys Thomas told GamesRadar+ that there’s not much to say if the characters will interact.

  • “I can’t speak to that,” he told GamesRadar. “But yes, we know their past, and obviously what happened in ‘Endgame.’ We know in these first two episodes that Clint’s dealing with the fallout of that. But in terms of how they meet, I can’t — I’ll just pretend I don’t know. Imagine it’s a happy meeting, where they talk over coffee and work things out.”
