Scarlett Johansson on Black Widow Movie, Photo Shoot and More | News


Scarlett Johansson recently did a photo shoot and spoke with Vanity Fair. She discussed her Black Widow role in the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also her upcoming Black Widow movie, the Avengers and much more.

Scarlett on her upcoming Black Widow movie-

“I did not want it to be an origin story. I did not want it to be an espionage story. I didn’t want it to feel superficial at all. I only wanted to do it if it actually fit where I was with that character. I had spent such a long time peeling those layers away, I felt that unless we got to something deep, then there was no reason to make it. Because I did my job in Endgame, and actually felt satisfied with that. I would have been happy to let that be it. So there had to be a reason to do it other than just to milk something.”

On her goal for it to “elevate the genre” –

“That’s my goal. The film talks about a lot of tough stuff. It deals with a lot of trauma and pain. And I hope this film is empowering for people because I think Natasha is a very empowering person, and an inspiring person in a lot of ways. She has overcome so much, and she’s brave. And so by elevating the genre I mean I hope that it can be both explosive and dynamic and have all that great fun stuff that goes with the genre, but I hope that we can also talk about, you know, self-doubt and insecurity and shame and disappointment and regret and all that stuff too. It has many different things, it’s not just that. But there’s a lot of deep stuff, I think, that drives it.”

On the Avengers movies-

“When we went to shoot the first Avengers, I don’t think any of the actors knew if it was going to work.”

On finding out Black Widow would die in Endgame-

“Kevin Feige called me, as was kind of normal, just to discuss whatever the script was and what was going on. But I think he called me to tell me that. I was surprised, but I also kind of wasn’t surprised at the same time. “I think we all knew there were going to be some big losses.”

On originally being turned down for the role-

“I was visiting my husband (Ryan Reynolds) at the time at work, I remember being in a random hotel somewhere. And I got that call and I was so, so disappointed. And then that was it. You know, life went on. I mean, I’ve certainly had enough experience of rejection.”

After getting the role when Emily Blunt had to decline-

“I’m not one to hold a grudge or anything, I was super excited about it. And I met with Jon again, and we had a funny conversation about how he had not cast me. But I was excited. I was so stoked.”
