Scarlett Johansson explains why Black Widow shouldn’t have arrived earlier.
Actress Scarlett Johansson will bid farewell to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the long-awaited film Black Widow.
Fans have long pressured Marvel Studios to make a solo Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson. Now when the film studio has decided to do it, a global pandemic has devastated the planet and it has been delayed for a year. Still, the desire to see this action-adventure is intact.
The Black Widow movie comes after we learn that Scarlett Johansson’s character died in the movie Avengers: Endgame (2019) and the actress herself comments on how different the story would have been if it were released a few years earlier.
“If we had made an independent Black Widow back then, it would be a very different movie than this,” said actress Scarlett Johansson. She then explained that Natasha’s sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame gave her a totally different perspective on who she is.
“Before, I don’t think I could have shown people who Natasha really is, what drives her, and show her emotional core,” Scarlett Johansson continued. “I don’t think we could get that far back then.”
If Black Widow had happened after Iron Man 2 (2010), the actress thinks it could only have “scratched the surface. ”
“It probably would have been a lot more of a spy thriller that maybe would have been a lot more eye-catching in a different way and would have just scratched the surface of what we do in this movie,” Scarlett Johansson said.
What will the movie be about?
Black Widow is set in the time between Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), at that time the heroes of Earth are divided, the Hulk is missing and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) finds a little lost because for the first time in his life he is without clear objectives. But people from his past will return as a new threat appears.
The film Black Widow will feature a great cast led by Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbor, William Hurt, Ray Winstone, OT Fagbenle, and Michelle Lee. This new installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be released on May 7, 2021. It should not be ruled out that it will reach theaters and the Disney + streaming platform at the same time.
