Black Widow was a movie Marvel fans had been asking for for years but we ultimately thought we would never get it. We finally did get it…but it was after already knowing that Natasha Romanoff dies in Endgame, souring the prospect of her film because we knew the outcome wouldn’t lead to more movies featuring her. Her movie was only going to be a puzzle piece to her overall story.
So did I expect the movie to be good, yeah, but did I expect it to be great, not really. To my elation, it was great.
Avengers: Endgame is close to coming out and that means other properties within the Marvel Cinematic Universe are starting to ramp up production. The Black Widow movie is building its cast with three actors set to co-star alongside Scarlet Johansson.
Florence Pugh, who is hot off the heels of starring in the critically-acclaimed film, Fighting With My Family, is set to play the “moral opposite” of Johansson’s Black Widow while David Harbour and Rachel Weisz are playing undisclosed roles in the movie.
