I think a lot of people feel this is a “filler movie” where if it doesn’t set anything up in the modern timeline it’ll be ultimately skippable in the grand scheme of things. Not that it can’t be a good movie on its own right, it probably will, but there’s no “hook” so to speak unless you really like Natasha’s character.

As much as I like the character, I was thrilled that death took this time. It wasn't something she "got better" from.
Just wait for the Avengers V: The Search for Natasha. Her katra is currently residing inside Clint's mind.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty lackluster, relative to other MCU movies. I wasn’t a fan of the editing in the first half of the movie, and I think Carol is portrayed as waaay too OP to lend herself well to good storylines

The way I see it, with Black Widow dead... the reasoning behind making her solo movie now can't just be to "make good" on never doing one before. It's got to set up something happening now, or in the foreseeable future. Maybe it's something as mundane as "The Skrulls, Chapter 2" by showing the evil ones and all that, but I don't think so. I also don't think it's just to introduce a new Black Widow. And if they're doing "big female Avengers" movie or whatever, they'd be remiss not to include her.
I agree that scene from the end of Captain Marvel should’ve been included in Endgame; it’s just one of many missteps I feel the movie made. It’s not a bad movie, but I wanted it to be so much better. We should’ve seen the debut of Professor Hulk, too.

Yeah I think it’s be kinda cheap if they undid Nat’s death, as unfortunate as that is

I hope that’s not the case but I guess we’ll get a feel for that when the first trailer drops later this year
