Marvels have thought to try something smaller after the huge game that the Avenger movies received, such as the Avengers: End game. The small movies would focus on the personal life of the characters. Black Widow will especially focus on Window’s life, according to Johansson.
Johansson and Pugh’s comments
What Johansson said was,
“We just wrapped Black Widow like two weeks ago or something like that so it’s very fresh in my mind and I don’t have the total perspective on it yet. It’s a film about self-forgiveness and it’s a film about family. I think in life we sort of come of age many times and you have these kinds of moments where you’re in a transitional phase and then you move sort of beyond it and I think in the Black Widow standalone film I think the character is at, when we find her, a moment of real crisis, and throughout the film, by facing herself in a lot of ways and a lot of things that make her, her, she actually kind of comes through that crisis on the other side and we start to be able to reset where she’s a more grounded, self-possessed person. So that’s her journey, well, I hope anyway.”
We all know how popular the Widow is for her role as a S. H. I. E. L. D agent. However, little do we know about her past and what were the events that led her to become the Widow. Although the character is dead now, so it might be perceived as meaningless to make a movie, but Marvel has taken the chance.
Johansson’s co-star Florence Pugh also made comments about the movie which were as follows,
“I think people are going to be really surprised by the outcome of a big action film having that much heart. And I know lots of people will be emotional about her because her character had such a hard ending [in “Endgame”], but it was special learning from her, and she’s been doing this for like 10 years in those films. For this to be her film was special. And I got to be there and see how she does stunts and lives it, and it’s so her.”
The comments clearly suggest that the movie won’t only be an all-action movie but would have a deep story and meaning. It is directed by Cate Shortland and stars like David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz along with Johansson and Pugh.
We pretty much got a description of the film from the comments made by the stars. However, we will have to wait and see how close they are to the real movie. The comments above were collected at Vanity Fair.
