So I've heard it mentioned a few times that since Endgame moves the MCU timeline forward by 5 years, that Marvel should throw out some prequel/interquel stuff to let our real timeline gradually synch up with the MCU timeline. Obviously any Black Widow movie is going to be a prequel/interquel work, but what other sort of period piece or interquel movies could we see? Shang-Chi as an 80s piece?

While I'm not opposed to Black Widow playing out during the gap, I'd rather Marvel start playing in the new sandbox. It avoids the question of why certain heroes weren't active during the final fight, or hadn't stepped up during the gap (and, thus, come to Nat's attention).

I really wouldn't bet on the Black Widow movie being a prequel or interstitial. Now that they've fully opened the multiverse can of worms, there are so many other options that would actually advance the setting.

For people complaining about the shot with all the ladies forming up behind Marvel: I stand by the interpretation I gave my roommate, which is that women see Carol Danvers and instinctively go 'okay, there is somebody who has her shit together.'

Honestly, if I'm in that fight, I'm going to go stand next to the lady who just singlehandedly took out Thanos' dreadnaught, without breaking a sweat.

I think LawOrc commented to me that one of Carol's superpowers is 'has her shit together'/'adults well'.

The problem is the dialogue doesn't support that the characters are doing that - it's specifically about helping Marvel get across the battlefield, when she's the one person on the field who really, really doesn't need that support. That's part of the reason why the scene feels contrived - Carol's the biggest badass on the field.

It feels just about as contrived as a comic book panel, so I don't mind.

And Marvel gladly takes that help. She's not there to show off, she's there to get the MacGuffin where it needs to be without taking any unnecessary risks.

I'd have liked the whole scene to have been framed a little differently, and give us some team-up tactics between those Avengers like we've seen with the male Avengers.
