Disney+ has just corrected an error in the Marvel movie timeline. Until now, the streaming service showed the events of Black Panther before the adventures of Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, in the Black Widow movie. The service finally corrected the situation.
Disney+ offers most Marvel movies in its catalog. Subscribers to the streaming service can indeed see or review popular successes like Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America or even Thor. To help neophytes find their way around, Disney+ displays the chronological order of the films that take place in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
Indeed, some films, such as Captain America: The First Avenger or Captain Marvel, take place decades earlier. Sadly, a small mistake had slipped into the ranking of productions displayed on the streaming service.

Black Widow takes place just before Black Panther, Disney+ installment
For several months, Disney + has suggested to subscribers that Black Panther, the film dedicated to the hero played by Chadwick Boseman, takes place before Black Widow, the film which returns to the origins of the character camped by Scarlett Johansson. It finally turns out that the epic where the Black Widow confronts her past, and finds her lost sister, takes place a little before the events of Black Panther.
In detail, the two films take place a few days after the events of Civil War. In this last film, a law obliges vigilantes to work under the supervision of governments. Two camps then oppose each other: the team led by Iron Man, who prefers to comply with measures in order to avoid conflicts, and the Captain America team, who refuses to sign the proposed treaty.
After the film, Natasha Romanoff, aka the Black Widow, is considered a fugitive. On the run, she ends up finding fragments of her past. The flashbacks of the beginning of the film, where the heroine is a child, take place in 1995. For his part, Black Panther returns to the Kingdom of Wakanda. This is the first time that the spectators discover the universe of T’Challa. The two films take place a few days apart. Ultimately, Disney+’s error has no influence on the narrative arc of the characters.
