The latest batch of Black Widow set photos show Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh driving a 2017 BMW 5 Series Touring Wagon, leading CBR to opine the film must be set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, because “when has an MCU film set in the present day ever showcased anything other than a new (or even not-yet-released) vehicle, usually as part of a deal with an automaker?”
Update 4:15 p.m.: Our friends at Jalopnik have offered us their expertise on this subject. Staff writer Justin Westbrook told us the speculation was based on the assumption that the car in the photos was a 2017 5 Series wagon, but in his expert opinion, it appears to actually be a new BMW X5 SUV. “A 2020 X5 could look like this,” he said, “and I’m pretty positive it’s an X5.”
Speaking with Comic Book, Heather Langenkamp revealed she’s eager to reprise her role as Nancy Thompson in a future Elm Street movie, though it isn’t certain “there’s anyone out there who is as imaginative as Wes Craven” to see it through.
I would really love to reprise Nancy in a way, because I feel that there’s more of that story to be told, certainly, but I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who is as imaginative as Wes Craven, who could figure it out. I just don’t know. I don’t see enough great storylines that would incorporate Nancy in any universe. I just don’t know if that exists, but some brilliant person might be working on something.
I don’t think there’ll be much of a light. There’s a lot of people who reach out to me who really loved it and really enjoyed the new take, and were just happy to see him back on the screen, but I know in the culture at large, I don’t think it was very well received.
