Even though Black Widow has been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a part of the Avengers since Phase one, we’re only just now getting a Black Widow solo film. And it’s a prequel movie, made after the fact that Scarlett Johansson’s character died in Avengers: Endgame. This marks only the second female-led film. The first film was Captain Marvel – another prequel film.

In a recent interview, Johansson explains the change in the industry that this film reflects:

“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. 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.”

I personally cannot wait to see Johansson’s return as Natasha Romanoff. And Florence Pugh’s introduction as Yelena in Marvel’s Black Widow. Are you?
