Black Widow is one of the most anticipated releases of this summer. The solo film that the character had been deserving since phase two and that after having finished a year due to the pandemic, will be released in our country on July 9 . First impressions are very good, but it is somewhat sad to know that it will most likely be the last time we see the character played by the actress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the head of the House of Ideas Kevin Feige does not close the door to Scarlett Johansson continuing to work with Marvel.
“Marvel is always about new beginnings and Scarlett Johansson is an incredible partner to us,” Feige explained. In addition, the executive producer pointed out how indispensable the actress has been for this spin-off: “She was the producer of this film. She was the one who brought us our amazing director, Cate Shortland , and I’m excited to continue working with her in any way possible if we’re so lucky. “
Unlike other stories about characters from the Marvel Universe, Black Widow is not an origin story, rather it is located between the events of Captain America: Civil war and Avengers: Infinity War . However, the project led by Kevin Feige that will begin its phase 4 with Los Eternos , does not go without a thread, so surely this solo story by Natasha Romanoff will serve to present what is possibly the new Black Widow, Yelena Belova.
One of the main reasons why Kevin Feige does not close the door for Scarlett Johansson to continue working at Marvel is due to the interest and importance that the actress gave to “create a new set” around the character. “It was important to Scarlett that she wanted to create a new set for this movie, to inform people about Natasha’s past, about her origins. And that meant a new family that we hadn’t seen before, ”Feige concluded.
The character of Black Widow has accompanied the industry for 11 years in movie theaters and fan homes . What could be the new role of the actress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Producer? Or maybe you are sitting in the director’s chair for the first time?
