From this week, Black Widow is available at no additional cost at Disney+, the platform that -among other contents- offers the series and movies that Marvel Studios has released so far. It is not news that it won the place of one of the most anticipated films by the followers of this cinematographic universe. But … why was it so claimed? The tape finally tells the life story that Natasha Romanoff had to go through before becoming part of the Avengers.
The character of Scarlett Johansson had its first appearance in Iron Man 2, that movie released in 2010. Since then, we have seen how his life evolved, becoming part of SHIELD and strengthening his relationship with each of the Avengers. And although we saw her fighting villains, having very funny moments and going through touching situations, the truth is that we could not know practically anything about her life story.
The recently released film has her as a central figure to discover the most dark of their personal growth. A conspiracy linked to an event in her past haunts her, and the strong Natasha Romanoff decides to face it at all costs. In this way, Marvel introduces us to how she came to become the Black Widow we know today. In this sense, your director Cate Shortland remarked about striking a perfect balance between the humor and the emotion: “I knew this movie had to be fun. I wanted Natasha to take off, I wanted people to see the character fly and transcend”.
And it is that in this feature film that now offers Disney+, we dive a little deeper into the childhood of Romanoff and his unconventional family. In adult life, they join Scarlett Johansonn, Florence Pugh like Yelena, her sister, David Harbour like The Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz like Melina. “We knew that humor and family dynamics They were as important as Natasha facing her past”Shortland insisted.
In this way, we know what Natasha hid for so many years. A hard life, a complicated childhood and a group of people who were decisive in his life. Johansson attests to that: “From the beginning, when we started talking about doing this autonomous film, there was no reason to do it unless we could really deeply explore the character and have the courage to do it. After playing Black Widow during a decade, I wanted to make sure that it would be artistically and creatively rewarding for me and also for the fans”.
After so many expectations and mysteries, Black Widow finally reveals his story. Marvel Creative Director, Kevin Feige, he claimed: “Has a preliminary history very rich. We were hinting at it in all the previous films, but now we face it in a totally unexpected. Many things happened to him, in addition to what we saw in the other tapes, and some of them are going to surprise the public”.
On Black Widow you will meet this spy and murderer and her passage through the Red Room. The same interpreter of the character pointed out: “When you see Natasha in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she is like a impenetrable force. She is reckless and out of control but has an impressive intellect. What are your secrets, your vulnerabilities? I am excited to share your fragility and strength. She is in a man’s world and projects a certain way of being in that world. What we wanted to do was find out who the real Black Widow is”.
