The first reactions of the specialized press about the solo movie of Black Widow begin to emerge. After being delayed for more than a year due to the pandemic, fans of the Marvel Universe will be able to enjoy the character of Scarlett Johansson in her latest film as Agent Romanoff.
Accompanying Johansson are actors Rachel Weisz, David Harbor, and who will take over from Johansson in Phase 4 of the MCU, actress Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova. The “Midsommar” actress and Oscar nominee for “Little Women” is earning accolades of her own accord, with her being called “an instant icon of the MCU.”
“Black Widow” is directed by Australian director Cate Shortland, known for films like “Somersault,” “Lore,” and “Berlin Syndrome.” The script for “Black Widow” was written by “WandaVision” showrunners Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson.
The film is set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War” and finds Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow on the run and heading to Russia to confront her past.
“I think we’ve done something very raw, very painful and very beautiful and I think people are going to be very surprised by the outcome of a great action movie with so much heart,” Pugh told Variety about the film. And I know a lot of people will get excited about her because her character had such a difficult ending (in Avengers: Endgame), but it was a special learning from (Johansson), and she’s been doing this for like 10 years in those movies. That this is her movie was special. And I was able to be there and see how she does stunts and lives them, and she is so.
“Black Widow” opens now in theaters and you can enjoy it via streaming on Disney + through Premier Access from July 9, at a cost of US $ 30.00. And it will be available for free from October 6, 2021, according to company information.
