The upcoming release has been delayed indefinitely during coronavirus pandemic.
Scarlett Johansson recently opened up about her role in the upcoming film “Black Widow”.
During a recent interview, the actress adored Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, for making “Black Widow” a family drama.
The actress plays Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). She has appeared in all the Avengers movies until Natasha’s demise in last year’s Avengers: Endgame.
Johansson praised Marvel boss Feige for subverting expectations and coming up with the family drama angle, during the interview with Total Film magazine.
“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,” she said.
“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.”
She wanted to make sure there was an emotional story to tell before agreeing to do a standalone film.
“I think from the very beginning when we first started talking about doing this standalone film, there was no reason to do it unless we could really dig deep and be brave and go there,” Johansson said. “Having played this character for a decade, I wanted to make sure that it would feel artistically and creatively rewarding for me as well as the fans.”
