The actress is sure that her heroine is a feminist.
There are just a couple of months left before the premiere of “Black Widow”, and it is logical that all the interviews in which Scralett Johansson is now taking part are reduced to discussing the film. Recently, the actress, who has become the incarnation of Natasha Romanoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, spoke with a representative of the Empire publication and told what to expect from the upcoming blockbuster.
Johansson noted that an important feature of the solo album will be the exploration of the theme of feminism, and the plot will easily reflect “the essence of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements.” The actress even stated that if they had ignored it, then “it would have been a failure.” The director of the film, Keith Shortland, aimed to create a picture about strong, self-sufficient women who come to each other’s aid in difficult times and help to cope with all troubles. And when Scarlett was asked if her heroine was a feminist, she said that “this is in a sense a stupid question,” because it could not be otherwise.
Recall that “Black Widow” will show what happened in Natasha’s life between the events of the films “The First Avenger: Confrontation” and “Avengers: Infinity War”, and at the same time will reveal the backstory of the character and introduce viewers to her old acquaintances – the Red Guard (David Harbor), Elena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Melinda Vostokoff (Rachel Weisz).
