The film is soberly called Black Widow. After the fate of the character in Avengers: Endgame who sacrificed himself to get the gem of the soul to counter Thanos, fans will have the opportunity to see Natasha Romanoff in action as Scarlett Johansson. It is likely that this solo film signals the farewell of the actress to the character after ten years of good and loyal service.
What is not the film
Scarlett Johansson has been involved in the shadows in the development of the movie Black Widow for several years. And just recently, she said what she did not want about this solo project:
“I did not want an original story, or a spy story, I wanted to avoid the superficial at all costs and only do it if it stuck to where I was with the character. I spent so much time peeling it that if it had not been for something deep, there was no reason to do it.I was satisfied with my work on Endgame and I would have been happy to stick to that, so there had to be a reason to do [this solo film] other than exploit the vein. ”
Black Widow will take place just after the events of Captain America: Civil War and before the Avengers: Infinity War events, with a scenario set in 2017. Nothing else is official. A rumor is that Natasha’s father, Yvan, could be part of the movie. Mentioned in Endgame, he could only be a shadow figure since the dead Natasha in front of the Red Skull never knew his father. Another rumor raises the possibility that the film addresses what happens after death to obtain the gem of the soul.
