Black Widow has arrived!
“I don’t think I could have played this iteration of Natasha 10 years ago,” Johansson said during Marvel’s massive Hall H panel. “It would’ve been a very different film. I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman and in all of her many facets. I’m excited for fans to see the flawed side of her, what she perceives to be the flawed side of her. And I’m looking to wipe out some of that red in my ledger, so you guys will be seeing a lot of that.”
Directed by Cate Shortland, the long-rumored Black Widow standalone film also stars Rachel Weisz as Malena, Stranger Things’ David Harbour as Alexi, The Handmaid’s Tale’s O.T. Fagbenle as Mason, and Midsommar’s Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova. The movie is set in Budapest and features Taskmaster as the main villain.
