As we await the announcement of a new release date for the blockbuster due to the COVID-19 crisis, new information has come to light regarding the new direction the studio chose to take with the personal story of one of the founding members of the Avengers.
Johansson says that the movie explores the family drama and confessed that the shift in tone caught her off guard.
In a chat with Total Film, she said:
“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 have dreamed of. The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to wrap my head what that was going to because there’s such a big tonal shift.”
She also dished on what made them make a standalone Black Widow movie.
“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.”
