Black Widow Features Quiet References To 2 Other Russian Superheroes

In the new MCU film we see Natasha Romanoff, Yelena Belova, Melina Vostokoff and Alexei Shostakov given the task to help save the world or at least that is what they are told.

As the story progresses and this dysfunctional family has to work together, big MCU fans might have caught two references to other Soviet characters.

David Harbour’s Red Guardian must be broken out of prison, where he encounters a man with a Marvel Comics history of his own. During this process, he faces Ursa Major who is a Russian mutant that can transform into a bear at will, and in the comic books he’s been known to have ties to both Black Widow and the Red Room.

The second reference comes when Yelena refers to Alexei as the Crimson Dynamo. This character has been seen throughout MCU especially facing Tony Stark.

We are sure more easter eggs will show up as more see the show.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
