According to screenwriter Eric Pearson, the Black Widow movie almost had a major easter egg, which ended up being cut from the film.

In one of the scenes, there would be a self-explanatory quote to Doctor Doom, one of the biggest villains in the Marvel universe, who has never been in the MCU. He is known to be an adversary of the Fantastic Four, another group of characters who have yet to make their debut in the franchise.

Speaking with IGN, Pearson said that he tried to reference some dialogue, but it was soon discarded, unfortunately.

“I must have had a reference to Latveria in there – I must have, but I don’t know. I don’t think it lasted very long. I’m always trying to put Latveria in things… It’s like one of those things where you want to be the first to talk about it in an Instagram post or something!” he recounted.

Latveria is a fictional country in Eastern Europe ruled with an iron fist by Victor Von Doom, Doctor Doom.

The villain, known for his intelligence and often overly “appealing” powers, is one of the few Marvel characters to literally be ahead of a state.
