Hamarosan érkezik A Fekete Özvegy (Black Widow) , a film a Bosszúállókból megismert Natalia Romanova előzményfilmje és a Marvel moziuniverzum (MCU) huszonegyedik filmje. A főszerepelők Scarlett Johansson mint Fekete Özvegy.

Black Widow

1.Is an upcoming film starring Scarlett Johansson in the lead role. She reprises the role of Natasha Romanoff or Black Widow which she first played in Iron Man 2, and later in the avenger films. Romanoff is on the run and must confront her past. It is made by Marvel Studios and distributed by Disney.

2.Natasha is an Avenger now but the now of the story follows on from Captain America Civil War which saw her as a spy. She is now running away from her past life but in the process, she must face the broken history of her relationships and the damage she caused by cutting ties with those whom she loved and who love her.

3.The idea of a solo film for Black Widow was first thought up in 2004, but around that time other kick ass female solo movies came out such as Kill Bill and Tomb Raider, and the market was saturated with a slew of these type of movies, so the plug was pulled on any further development. That is until 2009 when public interest returned to superheroes with Iron man 2, which was to feature Natasha Romanoff.

4.The film makers approached Emily Blunt for the role, but she turned them down because of prior commitments. So the role went to Johansson instead. From here her connection the Marvel films snowballed because the Romanoff character appeared in most of the subsequent Avenger films, but even in 2009 there was talk that mentioned a solo Black Widow film.

5.Not that Black Widow is strictly speaking a superhero, no she is more of a highly skilled operative. In fact, she has no super-hero powers besides being really, really good at her job.

6.In the age of Ultron, the producer Kevin Feige began to bring Natasha’s back story onto screen. She had been written by Jac Schaeffer and in 2017 he wrote the first draft of the script for the solo movie Black Widow. In 2018 Ned Benson was brought in to rewrite it, and Johansson had an input in it herself as she knew the character.

7.Filming began in Norway May 2019 then moved to England when Ray Winston joined the film, other actors were also announced including Robert Downey Jr and then filming wrapped up in October of that year.

Background to the Character

8.Black Widow is the most popular female character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). She is Russian, she was a spy for the KGB. She is in fact rather old, having lived through the second world war. She can be thought of as a Russian equivalent to Captain America – he is unable to change or age although he passes through history – she is in the same situation.

9.She and Clint Brant or Hawk Eye – the guy with the arrows – were an item and this is why she moved to the US -then she began to work for SHIELD the superhero special agency of the US government. In fact, she is a bit of a Russian turncoat.

10.The connection between the marvel comics and the marvel films is not always clear. In the comics she had relationships with the Winter Soldier (Captain America), Daredevil and Hawkeye. In the Avenger films some associations are hinted at but her relationship with the Hulk is new.
