When Was The Last Time Black Widow And Nick Fury Saw Each Other In The MCU?

There are so many meaningful relationships in the MCU. Steve and Bucky. Tony and Peter. Clint and Laura. Another, which started way back when in Phase 1, was one of the most important for the longest time but then suddenly disappeared.

The first we saw Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson), aka Black Widow, interact was in "Iron Man 2." The duo sat down with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) at Randy's Donuts for a snarky conversation with the billionaire, but we looked deeper into their relationship in "The Avengers." However, the true depth of this partnership was felt in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," as we see the sadness in Natasha's eyes when she's watching the doctors try and save a dying Fury. "Don't do this to me, Nick," she mumbles under her breath. Thankfully, we all know how that story ends, and the trench-coat stunner is still kicking despite the fake-out.

There is such a history between Fury and Natasha, as he served as somewhat of a father figure to her when she came on to SHIELD after escaping Dreykov and The Red Room. But we didn't see much more from the duo after the second "Captain America" film, as they only had a brief interaction one more time before we'd never see them speak again.

Nick Fury and Natasha Romanoff last see one another in Avengers: Age of Ultron

The last on-screen interaction we see between Nick Fury and Natasha Romanoff comes at the end of "Avengers: Age of Ultron." They speak about Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), who has just taken off as the Hulk in the Quinjet, and Natasha is clearly broken up about it. She asks Nick if he knew what would happen when he sent her to recruit Bruce all those years ago. "You never know. You hope for the best and make do with what you get. I got a great team," Fury tells her. "Nothing lasts forever," she comments back. "Trouble, Miss Romanoff. No matter who wins or loses, trouble still comes around," Fury responds, and it's the last thing he will ever say to her.

It's wild to look back and realize this is the last time they interact with one another because it would be eight years before Natasha would sacrifice herself for the Soul Stone. They had such a long and important relationship, making it such a bummer we never got to see them converse again. We also don't get to see Fury mourn her loss. He does show up for Tony's funeral in "Avengers: Endgame," but that ceremony is very much for the fallen hero and no one else.

We're hoping to see Fury at least mention Natasha in the future, or perhaps visit her gravesite, which we saw at the end of "Black Widow." The former SHIELD should acknowledge her one last time.
