Scarlett Johansson described the next Black Widow like a ‘family drama’ with the courage to ‘dig deep and be brave and go for it’.
The film, which was recently delayed due to coronavirus pandemic, finally gives Johansson hero Natasha Romanoff a solo outing on the big screen.
Johansson said Total movie this family is one of the film’s key themes, with trailers teasing a dysfunctional relationship between Natasha and her bizarre family unit.
This includes sister figure Yelena, played by Florence Pugh, and unconventional quasi-parents played by David Harbor and Rachel Weisz.
Johansson said, “I think part of the genius of Kevin Feige is that he always thinks about what fans expect from these movies and then gives them something they never could have dreamed of.
“The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to figure out what it was going to be because there is such a big change in tone.”
Black Widow is between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, so many years before the character died during the epic time travel-fueled Infinity Stones quest in Avengers: Endgame.
