Theatrical Trailer

Trivia & Production Info

– It was revealed that the film is set after Captain America: Civil War (2016).
– This will be Scarlett Johansson’s eighth time playing Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.
– On July 6, 2020, it was announced that Marvel Studios executives, including Kevin Feige, were so impressed with Florence Pugh’s performance as Yelena Belova that they plan to include her in future MCU films and she may even become the new Black Widow. In fact, Feige stated that this film was written to showcase Belova just as much as Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff.
– Scarlett Johansson describes the film as “Its own genre”, and even named Logan (2017) an Influence along with The Fugitive (1993), and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).
– Black Widow’s wrist-mounted tasers are colored yellow. This homages Natasha Romanova’s classic Black Widow costume, which was an all-black suit with yellow bracelets.
– Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Alice Englert, Dar Zuzovsky and Florence Pugh were considered for the role of Yelena Belova with Watson being the front-runner. Ultimately, Pugh was cast. Coincidentally, Watson and Ronan were Pugh’s co-stars in Little Women (2019)
– In the comics, Daredevil and Black Widow were a couple and Charlie Cox from Netflix’s Daredevil (2015) wants a crossover movie.
– David Hayter wrote a script, and was set to direct in 2004, when the character’s film rights were still at Artisan Entertainment/Lions Gate.
– It’s the twenty-fourth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the first movie Post-Infinity Saga (after Spider-Man Far From Home)
– Both Scarlett Johansson and Marvel expressed interest in a potential solo film several times over the following years, before development progressed with the hiring of Jac Schaeffer and Cate Shortland in 2018, even though Shortland has no experience in directing big budget action films.
– The Black Widow film was originally scheduled to release on May 1st, 2020. However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic outbreak (Covid-19), the film was postponed until November 6th, 2020, then delayed again until May 7th, 2021, and again delayed to July 9th, 2021. Black Widow is just one of the many films to be postponed due to Covid-19.
– In the trailer, you can see the same weathered hotel inner courtyard used in another Soviet sparrow school movie (Red Sparrow (2018)) filmed in Budapest, Hungary.
– This is David Harbour’s third comic-book feature, after Suicide Squad (2016) and Hellboy (2019).
– Nicole Perlman wrote a treatment for a Black Widow movie around 2010/2011.
– This is the first movie of Phase 4 in the MCU.
– Previously, Hellboy (2019) director Neil Marshall had expressed interest in directing the film, but was not approached as Marvel is seeking a female director.
– The film’s cast includes two Oscar winners: William Hurt and Rachel Weisz; and two Oscar nominees: Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh. By coincidence, both Johansson and Pugh competed together in 2020 for many Best Supporting Actress awards, including the Academy Award and BAFTA Award, for their roles in Jojo Rabbit (2019) and Little Women (2019), respectively.
– André Holland was considered for the villain role but O-T Fagbenle was ultimately cast.
– The eighth film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be filmed in Panavision (anamorphic), after The Incredible Hulk (2008), Thor (2011), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).
– David Harbour plays the character Alexei in Black Widow (2020), and on Stranger Things 3 (2019), he plays Jim Hopper who kidnaps a Russian scientist named Alexei.
– Julia Louis-Dreyfus was supposed to make her first appearance as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine in the film but made her appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021) instead.
– In the movie, Alexei Shostakov (Red Guardian) is a father-figure to Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow). In the original comics, Alexei and Natasha were husband and wife.
– Melina is named after Melina Vostakoff, a Russian agent who later went freelance and was known as the Iron Maiden.

Synopsis: “If Breakup was dealing with an unravelling relationship, Apart is dealing with the aftermath,” he explains. “It acknowledges the array of heavy emotions that come up living separate lives. You’re getting used to the idea of not being with someone who has been a big part of your life. Even after a break up has occurred, the presence of an ex still seems to loom large in one’s mind for a while. There are moments during the day where you wonder, is it really over? Or will there be another chapter in the relationship now that it has evolved? The EP is an attempt to sort through all this and get comfortable with the excitement of new freedoms while facing underlying fears of the unknown road that lies ahead.” P.T.O “Being able to revisit this project with Pete in a totally different context but within the same creative parameters is a unique artistic opportunity for me. It is always a pleasure to sing with Pete because I think our voices and stories complement each other.”

Scarlett Supports

Research shows that closures of Planned Parenthood clinics lead to increases in maternal mortality rates
Solarresponders
On September 20th, 2017, Hurricane Maria knocked out power to 100% of Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents, hospitals, telecommunications, fire stations, and 85% of the police stations. The storm devastated all aspects of the electrical grid (the above ground lines, transformers, power plants) which resulted in the longest blackout in the United States. An estimated 2,975 people died in Puerto Rico as a direct result of Hurricane Maria, making it the deadliest natural disaster in the United States in 100 years. In emergency situations, first responder stations transform into makeshift crisis centers, playing an essential role for local communities. Even though stations are typically outfitted with backup diesel generators, they are vulnerable to supply chain failures and mechanical breakdown. Without any form of power, first responders lose their capacity to: effectively receive emergency calls from 911 dispatchers charge radios and operate computer systems to communicate and coordinate mutual aid operate the stations’ A/C, cooling fans and lights operate the watch-office, which serves as an emergency resource and community haven First responders cannot risk interference with key communication resources, especially while facing unpredictable and dangerous conditions that occur after disasters. When the electric grid fails, first responders are unable to respond. The scale and urgency of this problem is only increasing. As our climate changes, natural disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity. Action is needed now to ensure the critical needs of first responders in vulnerable regions are met so they can save lives when a disaster occurs.
Cover Girl

Scarlett is featured on the cover of the Winter Issue of The Gentlewoman Magazine promoting Black Widow.
Not that there’s been much acting of late. When the world came to a halt, Scarlett found herself “kind of flummoxed,” she says. “I don’t know, I was having an out-of-body experience.” Without a film to make, she found herself adrift, flirting with a minor existential crisis. “At the beginning, I was doing all this crap that everyone was doing – like, I’ll start learning how to play guitar,” she says, in one of a number of soliloquies during our conversation that veer between earnest self-interrogation and stand-up. “Whatever. In between panicking. And then that stuff sort of faded away, and I realised actually that I exist pretty well in this space. I realise I don’t have to be constantly in motion to survive, I think.” She pauses. “I’ve always had this fear of, what if everything goes away, what will become of me? It’s this great fear of the unknown, and now I’ve been that way for some time, I realise, Oh, actually, you’re still alive.” She smiles and adds cheerfully, “It probably comes from some fear of death, anyway.”
