2020 will be labeled as one of the worst years in history but with the arrival of 2021, it’s time to start and prepare for a fresh new year filled with positivity. Due to COVID-19, many TV shows, movies, and world events were delayed or canceled in 2020 making the year even more disappointing. However, 2021 is expected to bring numerous major events and movie releases. Let’s look at seven things to look forward to in 2021.

A little background information about Natasha Romanoff or Black Widow: she was born in the Soviet Union and was an orphan until a man named Ivan Petrovitch saved her. After she was trained by him, the Soviet Intelligence (KGB) recruited her, acknowledging her exceptional athletic abilities. She was placed into the Black Widow Program and trained at the Red Room after serving in World War II as a young girl. The Soviets improved her stamina, power, and resistance to diseases.
