Having followed the adventures of Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff since Iron Man 2, we probably have an idea what to expect from a Black Widow movie. But Johansson says fans may be in for a surprise, telling Total Film (via GamesRadar) that it’ll be different from what anything else in the MCU…
“I think part of Kevin Feige’s genius is that he always thinks about what fans expect out of these films and then gives them something that they never could’ve dreamed of. The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to wrap my head around what that was going to be because there’s such a big tonal shift.”
We’ve seen glimpses of the family dynamic in all of the previous trailers, but mostly they’ve emphasized the Mission: Impossible-level action. With Cate Shortland behind the camera it would be foolish to not have personal drama play a big role. That’s also why you bring in actors like Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour, because it’s what they do best.
Black Widow was recently pulled from the schedule, and Disney has yet to provide a new date.
