Marvel Studios finally unveiled its Black Widow solo movie during their Hall H panel at Comic Con International: San Diego, and after the announcement, star Scarlett Johansson was on hand to offer some insight into what the long-awaited film will focus on.
“You actually get to all the questions you may have had about this mysterious character and who she is,” Johansson told Good Morning America, explaining that the film will delve into Natasha Romanoff's long hidden backstory. “Where she comes from, her makeup, who she knows, like, what makes her her? What are the secrets of the past that haunt her?”
As for when the movie takes place, it appears to be a flashback, given Black Widow's death in Avengers: Endgame. But anything is possible - especially given Johansson's comments about being ready to hang up her leather suit after Endgame.
“I would’ve been happy to, you know, to end it at Endgame and walk away,” she said. “I was proud of the work that we had all done together, and that the only reason to do this standalone would be to elevate the genre in some way. And so hopefully, we will have.”
