Moving on, although 19/07/21 marked “Freedom Day” where many lockdown rules were lifted however many people rightly so still remain cautious, the UK is clashing with EU over Gibraltar’s “post-Brexit” status, heatwave health alerts are being issued for sweltering conditions, over 46 million have received the first Coronavirus dose whilst over 35 million have received a second dose and entitled drivers continue to drive recklessly on the roads where inventing a new lane on the broken white lines suddenly is becoming a thing? *Mind...Blown*

Review:  OK, after watching this movie, it helps if you know your timelines. Black Widow, from my guess, is set towards the end of Captain America: Civil War, has an influence in Avengers: Infinity War and then ends after Avengers: Endgame, although the synopsis may contradict this. There is actually a lot of action in this movie with some characters given a different direction, not that I’m complaining, and the addition of Thaddeus Ross and Valentina Allegra de Fontaine actually works in tying in the MCU and Disney+ shows. The end credits shows that the story will be continued in a future Disney+ show
