The Deleted Black Widow Scene That's Giving The Internet Chills

"Black Widow" was a fitting emotional end to Natasha Romanoff's (Scarlett Johansson) journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For some, it may have seemed odd one of the founding Avengers would get their first solo movie after their death. We may have known what the ultimate fate for Natasha was going to be, but it didn't make it any less emotional to see her finally with a family she's always dreamed of having. 

The film offers key details of why Natasha was willing to sacrifice her life on Vormir during "Avengers: Endgame." She had done some terrible things in her past, and her time with the superhero team was finally an opportunity to right some of the wrongs. Natasha also wanted to do what was right by both of her found families: the Avengers as well as Yelena (Florence Pugh), Melina (Rachel Weisz), and Alexei (David Harbour). It may have been later than most fans would've liked, but it was a sendoff worthy of a true hero.

It's hard not to watch the final scene without shedding a tear, knowing Natasha's going off to meet her doom. It may be hard to imagine, but the finale of "Black Widow" could've been a lot sadder had a deleted scene remained in the film.

A Black Widow deleted scene shows Natasha going home

A Twitter account called Scarlett Johansson Fanpage uploaded a video a little over one minute in length showing what could've functioned as an alternate final scene. The clip begins with a bunch of kids pretending to be different Avengers in the Romanoffs' old Ohio suburb. At that point, Natasha rolls up to her old home on a motorcycle, likely reflecting on a more innocent time. The beat calls back to the family dinner scene earlier in the movie when Yelena exclaims, "It was real to me" when discussing their time as undercover agents in America. Natasha apparently wasn't lying when later in the film, she said, "It was real to me, too."

As if you couldn't get any more emotional watching the scene, a little girl approaches Natasha and strikes one of her signature poses. It's a great moment to show that even though Natasha is gone from this universe, her memory and influence live on. Underneath the post, plenty of fans chime in to discuss how emotional they became while watching it, such as @bholliday, who wrote, "How was this deleted?!" @SophieTonner_07 sums everything up nicely with a single word, "Chills."

No explanation has risen regarding why the creative team cut the scene. It could've merely been a matter of timing, seeing how the movie's theatrical cut already clocks in at 134 minutes. It's also possible director Cate Shortland wanted the ending to focus on Natasha going off to reunite with Captain America (Chris Evans) to bust their friends out of prison, which sets up her arc in "Infinity War" and "Endgame." Even without this scene in it, "Black Widow" sends off the super-spy in high-flying fashion.
