Screen Rant – Scarlett Johansson says the long-awaited Black Widow solo movie reflects the Time’s Up movement and confirms that Black Widow is a feminist.

Scarlett Johansson says the Black Widow movie reflects the #MeToo movement. Marvel’s long-awaited solo film for Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow is finally hitting theaters in November after its original release date back in May was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. So far, Black Widow is sticking to its current release date, which means fans will soon get to see Natasha’s highly-anticipated backstory.

Directed by Cate Shortland, Black Widow is a prequel story taking place between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. The first film of Marvel’s Phase Four will introduce Natasha’s past, including her non-biological Russian family. Natasha will return to her Russian roots to take down the Red Room, the organization that trained her as an assassin when she was growing up. With the help of her family, Natasha will attempt to free the Red Room while facing off with its leader, the mysterious Taskmaster. The cast also includes Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov, and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff. The film’s trailer and teasers promise action-packed sequences and intense fight scenes typically seen in Marvel movies, but Johansson says there’s much more to Black Widow.

In an interview with Empire, Johansson discusses the feminist themes in Black Widow and how it reflects the #MeToo movement. “I think this film, in particular, is very much reflective of what’s going on in regards to the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement,” said Johansson. “It would be such a miss if we didn’t address that stuff if this film didn’t take that head-on. I think, particularly for Cate, it was so important for her to make a movie about women who are helping other women, who lift other women up out of a very difficult situation. Someone asked me if Natasha was a feminist. Of course, she is, it’s obvious. It’s kinda an asinine question.”

2020 is a big year for female-led superhero films, with Black Widow, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, and The New Mutants, all featuring women at the forefront. For years, fans have been calling for more female representation in comic book movie leads. After 21 films in the MCU, Captain Marvel delivered the first female superhero lead, and the DCEU even beat them to it with 2017’s Wonder Woman. Now Marvel is noticeably trying to feature more diversity in its upcoming TV shows and movies. Disney+’s upcoming The Eternals will feature a diverse cast and superhero female lead in Angelina Jolie. Additionally, She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel series are in the works, while Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch will co-lead WandaVision later this year.

Of course, Hollywood still has a long way to go before it accurately reflects how the world looks, but it’s clear that Marvel Studios is trying to make a change and divert from the white, male superhero lead. Fans have understandably been impatient for a Black Widow-centric movie, considering she appeared in seven MCU movies before she was given her solo story. It’s refreshing to see not only a female lead but that most of the lead’s family is compromised of women. Now, after all these years, fans will finally get to learn the truth behind Natasha’s past later this year.

A love story about divorce. A marriage coming apart and a family coming together. Marriage Story is a hilarious and harrowing, sharply observed, and deeply compassionate film from the acclaimed writer-director Noah Baumbach. Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson deliver tour-de-force performances as Charlie, a charismatic New York theater director wedded to his work, and Nicole, an actor who is ready to change her own life. Their hopes for an amicable divorce fade as they are drawn into a system that pits them against each other and forces them to redefine their relationship and their family. Featuring bravura, finely drawn supporting turns from Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, and Laura Dern—who won an Academy Award for her performance here—as the trio of lawyers who preside over the legal battle, Marriage Story (nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture) is a work of both intimacy and scope that ultimately invokes hope amid the ruins. DIRECTOR-APPROVED TWO-DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New 4K digital transfer, supervised by director Noah Baumbach • New interview with Baumbach • The Players, a new program featuring interviews with actors Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Julie Hagerty, and Ray Liotta • The Filmmakers, a new program about the production of the film, featuring interviews with Baumbach, editor Jennifer Lame, production designer Jade Healy, costume designer Mark Bridges, and producer David Heyman • The Making of “Marriage Story,” a new program featuring behind-the-scenes footage • New interviews with composer Randy Newman and Baumbach about the film’s score • New program featuring Baumbach walking the viewer through a key location from the film • Trailers • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing • PLUS: Notes on the film by novelist Linn Ullmann

Forbes – In a move surprising everyone except th0se of us who’ve been telling you it was coming for months, Disney announced today that their 2020 live action adaptation of Mulan will hit Disney+ on September 4th in a new category of content described as “premium service,” through which subscribers can view Mulan through the streaming site’s new VOD option. This will be simultaneous with limited international theatrical distribution.

Mulan opens in limited markets next month, specifically countries without Disney+ and where movie theaters are open for business. The studio will take advantage of cinematic release where it cannot go direct to consumers, while everywhere else Mulan will be available in-home to Disney+ subscribers for an additional fee.

To recap my own points, back in April I published an article explaining how streaming and VOD — specifically, a nuanced combination of the two — was the future of distribution for the majority of new content, including films and major branded franchises. I got a lot of pushback against my beliefs at the time, but I followed up with a few additional articles (about Netflix, about Tenet’s release, and about movie theaters) as events continued to reinforce all of the lessons pointing toward this inevitable future of entertainment distribution and consumption.

Now, another big neon sign is flashing to tell us we are approaching an all-in moment on the new distribution approach that’s become necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, but that was already the endgame for Disney+ and many other studios with their own streaming services. The question was the precise combination and utilization of options.

I personally favored the one that included initial $30 VOD release but only through the streaming subscriptions first — that way, you subscribe to the studio’s streaming service first, and then through that you can access a VOD option. It bundles subscription and early access to new blockbuster releases, ahead of a potential wider VOD release at a higher $50 price (for example) for non-subscribers, and then eventually a release on the regular Disney+ subscription platform for no extra charge besides the basic subscription fee.

As it turns out, so far Disney has kicked this off with the initial subscription-VOD bundle I’ve favored. I also think it’s worth considering adding another step in the distribution process, so that after the broader VOD release but before it hits regular streaming for no additional charge, it could enjoy a couple of weeks at a higher-tier monthly subscription rate for “early access” to new content, an idea suggested by Sean Gerber of Marvel Studio News and the MCU Fan Show.

The price-point of $29.99 is also right where most of us expected it to be, with $50 as a high-end alternative for a broader VOD distribution that eschewed subscribers-only access. But subscribers-only is exactly where the initial VOD offering needed to be — a point I’ve also made along with several other people, including Mr. Gerber.

Last month I wrote that the summer movie season was dead and that everybody needed to process that fact and move forward instead of trying to resist it. I realize that part of the reluctance to publicly admit summer season is dead and to officially move to VOD/streaming distribution for many (or most) of the big would-be-blockbuster studio releases is the fear it will spook investors on Wall Street and investors in film projects.

Pushing the release dates further into the future has been a strategy to both monitor the situation in case theatrical distribution somehow magically does pull a rabbit out of its hat, but also (and, I’d argue, primarily) to maintain appearances ahead of quarterly reports, at a time when studios are also selling enormous amounts of debt and trying to keep investors on board as the overall economy has many believing we are headed for a financial crash.

Now, Disney has taken the first big step. The next one will be after Mulan makes enormous amounts of money on VOD — which will happen, make no mistake about it — and Disney’s subscriber numbers jump, when Disney has confirmation of what they (and a lot of the rest of us) already know: it’s a viable distribution model, and Black Widow will generate another big flurry of new subscribers VOD revenue.

I think Disney will approach 100 million subscribers if both Mulan and Black Widow release before the end of 2020, and generate massive record-breaking VOD rentals. If the results are as impressive as I expect, then it will go a long way toward confirming and establishing this new distribution model going forward. I won’t repeat all of my prior points about theatrical also remaining part of the equation, albeit a smaller part, so I’ll refer you again to my earlier articles (linked above) about all of this.

Mulan seems like a perfect film to set this new standard, as it’s as close to a “guaranteed hit” in the global market as you’re likely to find this year, and if not only the studio but also subscribers are pleased with the approach, it will be easy to further popularize it with another “sure thing” hit like Black Widow.

Going forward, obviously it will be more desirable to budget the productions at a lower rate, and to significantly reduce marketing expenses as well, but it’s worth any shortfall with these two big-budget releases to use them as record-breakers establishing the new model in the biggest and most impressive way possible.

I have a massive exclusive for you all today. Back in 1995 Scarlett was cast as Jenna Halliwell in the TV pilot for the new show The Client that was the spinoff of the movie of the same name that came out in 1994 staring Susan Sarandon & Tommy Lee Jones. For the TV show JoBeth Williams took over for Susan as Reggie Love and the show had one season but from what I can tell it did well. For the last 3 years I have been looking all over the internet for a copy of the episode and unfortunately the show has never had a DVD release so no copys of the show are about online making it dame near impossible to find but after a lot of looking I at last found a way to get a copy of it and at this time we are the only Scarlett site that has it. So I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

You can view all the video clips to episode on the sites Instagram Here
just look down a bit to July 05th.

19 years ago this month this site was born thanks to the amazing Maria who put in all the hard work to start this all. Over the years this site has seen a lot of people come and go each adding there own feel to the site Camilla, Jess, Riikka, Lisa, Holly, Mel & Aniek thank you all for your hard work as well. I took over as co-web in 2014 and then later that year as the full owner of the site back when we were scarlett-fan.com and later after I lost the name with our old host going down to s-johansson.org. It’s been a absolute pleasure running this site and being with Scarlett for all her up’s and down’s over the years and I hope we are here for 19 more years.

You may have seen that I have not been doing a lot of main site updates and it’s true I have not been posting new ones but I have been working hard on the updates in the past. As I said we lost the old URL back years ago and with it all the old post’s when down with dead links so over the last month I have been going over them all and putting new URL’s in and just updating them so people can see them again, As of right now I am up to 2013. On top of this I fixed the links in the menu to be working again and will be redoing all the old info in there over the coming weeks as well when I am done with the past updates.

I would like to say thanks to Cherry Gem Design for doing this just beautiful look on both the main site and the gallery using Scarlett’s 2020 Entertainment Weekly Black Widow shoot.

Back in March scarlett did the photoshoot for Parade Magazine – April 2020 cover to at the time to promote Black Widow. We got a new interview and photoshoot at this time only three outtakes have come out and just the magazine cover but I am still looking for the rest of the scans.

Parade Magazine – Not far from her home in New York City, on a sunny day in early March, Scarlett Johansson pops in for her Parade photo shoot after dropping off her 5-year-old daughter, Rose, at school. (This interview and photo shoot occurred before the coronavirus quarantine.) A little later, she’ll pick up Rose and return to the uptown apartment she also shares with her fiancé, Saturday Night Live co-head writer and “Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost.

Oh, it’s pretty much just a typical weekday (when such days were possible just six weeks or so ago), though “typical” is a relative term when you’re an acclaimed, world-renowned actress, and your new movie, Black Widow, is shaping up to be a fall smash.

Indeed, with all due respect to one of her baseball heroes—Hall of Fame-bound superstar Derek Jeter of her beloved New York Yankees—Johansson is the one delivering big hits these days. At 35, the former child star is the top female box-office draw in the world, having brought in more than $14 billion in global ticket sales. She’s proven herself a master at comedy (Sing), action (Lucy) and awards-bait drama (her impressive Oscar-nominated 2019 twofer of Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit). And she’s done it while winning legions of fans as the Russian-KGB-assassin-turned-crime-fighting-Avenger Black Widow in seven Marvel movies. With Black Widow, she finally gets to star in her own.
