Scarlett Johansson discusses reprising her role as Natasha / Black Widow

I think from the very beginning when we first started talking about doing this standalone film, there was no reason to do it unless we could really dig deep and be brave and go there. Having played this character for a decade, I wanted to make sure that it would feel artistically and creatively rewarding for me as well as the fans.

Producer Kevin Feige discusses Natasha Romanoff character

She has such a rich backstory. We’ve hinted at it throughout all the other films. But we approach it in a completely unexpected way. She’s been up to a lot all along—in between when we see her in the other movies—some of which will be surprising to people.

Director Cate Shortland discusses what’s exciting about the film

I think what’s exciting about the film is we’re playing with the audience’s expectations. We’re exploring parts of Natasha that the audience has absolutely no idea about. We explore her family, love and passion, and you get to see all these facets of her we have never seen before.

Release date

The movie will launch simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access in most Disney+ markets on July 9, 2021.
