Fans cannot keep their calm to watch Black Widow. Everyone is curious to know what topic will the film revolve around this time? Well, Scarlett Johansson has spilt the beans over the subject.
BW star just happened to confirm the topic the latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will address. Read on to know more.
In an interview with Empire Magazine, Scarlett Johansson confirmed that Black Widow would address the ongoing #MeToo Movement.
“I think this film, in particular, is very much reflective of what’s going on in regards to the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement. It would be such a miss if we didn’t address that stuff if this film didn’t take that head-on,” the actress said.
Johansson went on to explain that it was essential to director Cate Shortland that she “make a movie about women who are helping other women, who lift other women up out of a very difficult situation. Someone asked me if Natasha was a feminist,” she added. “Of course she is, it’s obvious. It’s kinda an asinine question.”
In Black Widow, Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff teams up with sister Yelena Belova (Pugh) to take on new villain Taskmaster, who is capable of mimicking the abilities and fighting styles of anyone they meet.
The film takes place between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, and it’s been rumoured that Robert Downey Jr. will also make a cameo, reprising his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov/Red Guardian, O-T Fagbenle as Rick Mason and Rachel Weisz. The film arrives in theatres Nov. 6.
