If you are wondering how this is possible since the death scene of Romanoff in the Avengers: Endgame seemed pretty damn permanent well there is a possible answer to that.
Reports have the movie being filmed as a prequel set before the events of Iron Man 2, which was the introduction of Natasha Romanoff on the MCU.
