When Was The Last Time Natasha Romanoff Saw Wanda Maximoff Before She Died?

Both Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, and Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, have had content focused solely on their characters post-"Avengers: Endgame." The first Disney+ Marvel series to follow the second highest-grossing film of all time (via Box Office Mojo) was "WandaVision," which gave fans a trippy experience inside the reality that Wanda created for herself within an entire town after the trauma of losing Vision (Paul Bettany) during the events of "Avengers: Infinity War."

As we know, Natasha sadly dies in "Avengers: Endgame," sacrificing herself so that the Avengers can obtain the Soul Stone. Therefore, 2021's "Black Widow" takes place between the events of "Captain America: Civil War" and "Avengers: Endgame" and follows Natasha's return to her Russian "family," including her adopted younger sister, Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova. Together, they destroy the infamous Red Room, the origin of all Black Widows.

Natasha and Wanda both have traumatic histories, including the death of loved ones, torture and mind manipulation, and having to leave childhood behind very fast in order to survive. However, even with these similarities that could likely bring them closer to one another, the characters never truly bonded, although there may have been hints of mutual respect. Either way, they never got the chance to really talk, and even if they did, when was the last time the two characters saw each other anyway?

Natsha last saw Wanda in Avengers: Infinity War

Based on what we know from the events of "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame," the last time Wanda and Natasha saw each other was in "Avengers: Infinity War." We first see Wanda in the film in Europe, where she is living off-grid with Vision due to the Sokovia Accords. After being attacked by the Children of Thanos in order to obtain the Mind Stone, Vision and Wanda are assisted by Natasha; Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon (Anthony Mackie); and Steve Rogers, aka Captain America (Chris Evans). They're able to fend off the villains for the time being, and very few words are exchanged between Wanda and Natasha aside from what is likely a general look of appreciation from Wanda for the help and Natasha scolding the couple for not checking in with them.

After this, the next and last time Natasha sees Wanda is when they fight Proxima Midnight (Carrie Coon) together during the Battle of Wakanda. Natasha first steps into the fight after Wanda is knocked to the ground to note that Wanda is "not alone." Natasha is then nearly killed before Wanda uses her abilities to throw Proxima in the path of one of Thanos' army's bladed vehicles. Following this, the two separate with their own missions to complete, and Wanda disintegrates in Thanos' Snap before Natasha sees her again. Wanda then returns in "Avengers: Endgame" with the others who were lost, only to find out about Natasha's sacrifice.

Wanda likely admired Natasha, especially since she is close with Clint

At the end of "Avengers: Endgame," Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) and Wanda share a small but intimate scene looking over the river during Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) funeral. Not many words are exchanged between the two, with Clint merely stating that he wishes he could let Natasha know somehow that they won, to which Wanda simply says, "She knows. They both do," referring to both Natasha and Vision. The two then embrace, seemingly comforting each other in their grief for the loss of the people they love most.

Based on Clint's mannerisms when he's speaking to Wanda about Natasha and the way Wanda carries herself while battling with Natasha in "Avengers: Infinity War," it's likely that the two women truly respected each other. Although they were certainly unsure of one another when they first met in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," when Wanda was initially Natasha's enemy, Wanda and her brother, Pietro (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), actually help the Avengers later on thanks in part to Clint and Wanda's iconic conversation. Natasha likely felt that if Clint respects someone, she does too.
